Usain Bolt Finishes Third at 2017 World Championship and Shows Humility
Jamaica’s Usain Bolt embraces US athlete Justin Gatlin after the final of the men’s 100m final.
Justin Gatlin powered to a shock 100m gold world title leaving Christian Coleman and Usain Bolt to settle for silver and bronze respectively.
And Gatlin knew what Bolt meant to the sport, bowing in admiration in front of him, even after beating him.
Bolt didn’t smile any less afterward.
“It is just one of those things,” Bolt said, showing his carefree demeanour even in defeat. “It has been brilliant.”
Bolt was again slow out of the blocks in the final and came back strong, but he ended up short. When he ran out of steam, Gatlin gathered more.
