Bolt wins relay heats in his penultimate race

  • Athletics : Coe's criticism of Gatlin's victory inhumane – Agent

Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin will meet in a final duel on the track after helping their teams qualify for the final of the 4x100-meter relay at the world championships. Trailing when he got the baton on the anchor leg, Bolt powered away, quickly swept past his rivals and had time to look to his right before crossing in 37.95 seconds.

British athletics legend Coe - a two-time 1500m Olympic champion - had told the BBC on Sunday two-time drugs cheat Gatlin's victory in the sport's most high profile event in London, which was watched by over eight million viewers in Britain, was not the "perfect script".

Bolt pulled up injured halfway through his leg and didn't finish the race.

THIS WEEKEND, Sir Mo Farah and Usain Bolt, two of the greatest track and field athletes of all time are set to hang-up their spikes.

"I stayed very focused, after all that I managed to win, it's incredible, Usain has so much contributed to our sport, we are so inspired, and to be here at this point of my career is huge".

And despite finishing third in his final World Championships 100 metres last Saturday, his achievements as a sprinter have been unsurpassed. "They executed and ran well for a young team", Bolt said.

The women's 4x100m final is at 9:30 p.m. (3:30 p.m.).

He hobbled and went down in agony as Britain kept on going to hold off the US and take gold.

No one is ideal, it is argued, and although Gatlin has received two suspensions for failed drugs tests, people point to the circumstances around his first ban, and giving him another chance after his second. Bolt routinely slowed down before crossing the finish line. It could be two more Jamaican gold medal performances or further affirmation the sprint tide might finally be turning.

"There are no words to describe how I am feeling". "We've been battling for years and he finally got one (gold); yes it's at the end of my career but I have to show respect and where respect is due", added the Jamaican, who insisted his legacy remains intact.

"For me it's hard to be sad because the energy I'm getting from the crowd is brilliant, I'm just happy. Yohan Blake is coming in for the final is definitely good". They may win their race, they might come last, but every one of them walks off the track utterly beaming to collect their protein shake from the team physio. We have been training that relay, there were some camps.

Felix has won 14 medals at the world championships and can move up to 16 if she runs the 4x400 relay and the United States wins medals in both events.

Defending champions Jamaica (42.50) finished second behind Germany (42.34) in the second heat.

Completing the final lineup were the Netherlands, featuring twice 200m champion Dafne Schippers, and 2015 bronze medallists Trinidad and Tobago.
