The world’s fastest man has lost.
Usain Bolt ran his final 100m dash this evening and didn’t finish in first.
The 30-year-old Jamaican sprinter, the fastest man to ever live, finished in third in the 100m final at the World Championships in London. This was believed to be Bolt’s last professional sprinting event.
American sprinters Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman finished in 1st and 2nd, respectively.
