Twitter Salutes Usain Bolt As The Greatest Sprinter Of All Time Bows Out With A Bronze At World Championships

Sports can be cruel at times and Usain Bolt, the most celebrated and successful sprinter of all time, will definitely agree with it. The Jamaican, who has won every Olympic and world 100m and 200m since 2008 with the exception of the 100m at the 2011 Daegu world titles, finished third in his last competitive race at the IAAF World Athletics Championship in London on Saturday (August 5). The defeat was his first in a global-championship 100m.

US sprinter Justin Gatlin, who was banned twice for doping and had lost the 2015 world final by a hundredth of a second to Bolt, avenged his loss by ruining the Jamaican’s farewell party as he finished at the top of the podium followed by his compatriot Christian Coleman and Bolt.

The stunned fans took a while a while to realise that the fastest man was overpowered in his last race but soon started chanting, Usain Bolt! Usain Bolt!.

And as expected, tributes pour in from all the quarters for the greatest sprinter of all time. Gatlin, who was booed for his past conducts, also paid his tribute by saying: “It is Bolt’s last race. It is an amazing occasion. We are rivals on the track but in the warm-down area, we joke and have a good time. The first thing he did was congratulate me and say that I didn’t deserve the boos. He is an inspiration.”
