Usain Bolt calls it a career
Later on, an emotional night of world-class athletics in London as Mo Farah and Usain Bolt compete on the track for the last time in a major championship.
Because Bolt made us all his fans. This is a world filled with intrigue, drama and often great pain as many competitors from around the world see their dreams dashed at the very first hurdle.
Bolt's annual earnings have crept up steadily over the years, and increased significantly as he began piling up his collection of eight gold medals. Without Bolt, it's back to square one and up to the likes of Christian Coleman, Wayde van Niekerk and Andre De Grasse to pick up the pieces.
Even in the sadness, Bolt has made his show, taking égoportraits with the audience, draped in the jamaican flag, and running his famous gesture of the Flash to satiety, to the delight of the london audience. However, 400m champions usually fall into obscurity outside the world of track and field. "I personally don't think it [the bronze medal] has changed what I have done in any way", Bolt said. No regrets, I came out and did my best; win lose or draw.
Eighty meters in, Ta Lou appeared to be the woman who would engineer a surprise win, but Bowie's breakneck lunge at the line, as she and Ta Lou crossed simultaneously-with Bowie tumbling onto the track-ultimately put her atop of the podium.
Still, Bolt was supportive of his young teammates.
Two years ago at world championships, Gatlin had Bolt all but beaten in the 100 finals, but he leaned too early before the line and let the champion pass him for a.01-second victory.
With apologies to Americans Justin Gatling, Tyson Gay and Trayvon Bromwell, I most-certainly rooted for the Jamaican sensations during the Olympic Games as if I was Bob Marley reincarnated. Bolt managed to do it nine times in his career.
China protests United States 'freedom of navigation'
This comes as the Trump administration has called on China to do more to reign in North Korea's nuclear missile program . China , which claims virtually the entire South China Sea , routinely protests such operations.
The 4x100m relay takes place at 21:50 BST on Saturday.
Bolt seems to enjoy his fame and fortune.
Maybe so, but when he asks the crowd where Bolt is, in between booing, they'll say 'he's behind you.' Two places behind you.
"If a martian walked into the house and looked at all the pictures they would think I was the greatest athlete of all-time". Bolt graciously settled for a bronze.
When I run the race I know there will be four or five other runners from a nearby church.
According for Forbes magazine, Bolt has earned $32.2 million in 2017, with a majority coming via product endorsements. Bolt is now hoping to redeem that for his fans and country tomorrow when he runs for Jamaica in the 4x100m relay at the IAAF 2017 World Championships in London.
Though van Niekerk could eventually prove to match Bolt's ability, his reserved personality means he'll likely never reach the heights of Bolt's legendary persona. If that doesn't surprise you, consider this, Bolt's fastest speed in a race is 27.79 miles per hour.
But this should take nothing away from Farah's success particularly at a time when distance running is arguably more competitive than ever before.
