Bolt loses world race; still fan favorite

Bolt loses world race; still fan favorite

Usain Bolt was the overwhelming favourite to win the 100m race as he planned to retire after this tournament but things didn't quite work in his favour as he finished in third place behind Christian Coleman in second place and Jason Gatlin in the first place. Bolt has given his all to the sport that made him and which he also remade. The contrast was also striking between the walkabout that had the right Bolt, and the output nearly on the sly and under the whistles of Gatlin, which has put an end to an unbeaten 9 years of Jamaican big competition. For he is just one of a suspicious number of Bolt's Jamaican teammates who, like Gatlin, have returned to competition after testing positive for PEDs. "This night is still a magical night for track and field and Usain Bolt".

Growing a goatee may give him a touch of maturity while he would still give the big innocent grin at the cameras on the starting line, joke with Hero the Hedgehog and flash thumbs-up sign to the crowd and make his trademark pose of shooting off invisible arrows despite the third place finish.

They added, "One of the reasons for his global popularity is that Bolt has always understood that sport has never been worth selling your soul", Giving another befitting pop culture reference to salute the recipient of eight Olympic gold medals, They wrote, "He has dramatised all that human bodies might be capable of, and done so in a spirit not of "focus" but of celebration".

Cambodia gives ultimatum to Laos over 'border invasion'
Hun Sen said at a ceremony in Phnom Penh about 30 soldiers from Laos had crossed into the area and that some of them remained there during daytime.

It was the first time Bolt had lost a World Championships 100m final he had started, having been disqualified for a false start in Daegu in 2011. Meanwhile, Bolt, flamboyant in winning but gracious in defeat, congratulated his longtime foe. But then, the young and determined Bolt had other plans. "I enjoy relays more than anything". Bolt managed to do it nine times in his career.

Emma Coburn took the lead for good at the final water jump and kicked home in a championship record of 9:02.58.

Actually, this might explain why Bolt was so keen to defend Gatlin against not just jeering crowds but sneering competitors as well.

Sanchez to miss Arsenal's EPL opener against Leicester
Alexis Sanchez had supposedly previously told the club he would only consider remaining if they forked out such a high amount. Wenger added he had a lot of players whose fitness he wasn't sure about going into the match.

"Lord Coe's a part of the IAAF who set the rules, who set out the punishments, and when you serve the punishment you are supposed to be reinstated, which these athletes who have offended and abused some of these rules have, and if you don't want them in you should change the rules", said Nehemiah. "I tried my best not to let it affect me too much", he said. Bolt graciously settled for a bronze. "I knew it. And when I left the blocks, I was like 'Aaaah'".

After the race, Gatlin bowed down to Bolt as if saluting a king or being remorseful for ruining the Jamaican's chance of ending his career with a record fourth gold medal in the blue-ribbon 100m.

According for Forbes magazine, Bolt has earned $32.2 million in 2017, with a majority coming via product endorsements.

Gold jumps to eight-week high, lifting miner's share prices
The latest United States economic data cemented expectations that inflation will remain subdued amid a robust labour market. Randgold Resources Ltd. and Barrick Gold Corp. were among the best performers, each gaining more than 2 per cent.

The world of athletics would have wanted another passing of the baton at a time when its biggest star, the CV clean and without the slightest suspicion, has made a decision to hang up the spikes. He's also the only man in history to run under 10 seconds in the 100m, under 20 seconds in the 200m and under 44 seconds in the 400m. But this did not stop me from imputing guilt by association in "Doping Charges Strike Usain Like a Lightning Bolt", February 3, 2017.
