Usain's cousin: "I'm happy Justin won it".

12 August 2017

There is unlikely to ever be a track star as rich as Bolt, because athletics earnings generally pay so little even to those at the top of their field. A man gifted with unimaginable talent, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

Usain Bolt, the greatest sprinter in modern times, said he plans on retiring after running his final races this week at the world championships in London.

Experienced Yohan Blake, who finished fourth in the men's 100m final and failed to qualify for the final round in 200m, did not start in the heats but Bolt later said that he will return in the final race. All that is good has to end and that's what has happened in the world of track. His breathtaking performances in Beijing catapulted him into the history books. It was his last race before hanging up his running shoes for good.

Such was the extent of his God given ability and his nearest rival usually finished meters behind. When he surged clear to take 10,000m gold last week it was his 11th consecutive world or Olympic title, going back to 2011.

Shares last traded at $0.357 just below $0.40, the 50 day moving average and barely below the 200 day moving average of $1.07. Market capitalization is calculated by multiplying a company's shares outstanding by the current market price of one share.

Another athlete, Irish 400m hurdler Thomas Barr was also forced out of his semi-finals on Monday. Bolt however would have none of it.

And we believe they are right.

"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.

In fact, Bolt is favored to run in both the morning heats and the final, according to Reuters and the Jamaica Gleaner newspaper.

Tensions over North Korea weigh on stocks but boost gold
ASIA'S DAY: The earlier Asian session was heavily influenced by the sabre-rattling between the USA and North Korea. Offsetting the declines was a 0.4 percent gain by the materials group, which includes gold producers.

Philip said: "We definitely embraced the opportunity". What's more, Gatlin denies him the crutch of old age, which Bolt could have leaned on to justify his retirement and/or rationalize this loss. She will have stiff competition from Olympic champion Ruth Beitia of Spain and Vasthi Cunningham of the US, ranked second in the world this year. Not Bolt; he just made it seem like a bit of fun. Whenever Bolt laced up his boots, you knew he was going to win. It's too bad that, far from being the fun and lovable guy Bolt always was, Lewis was always an arrogant and surly jerk.

And that means a pathetic attempt to rout cheats from athletics is once more in the spotlight. They performed their media duties, they performed their rituals - Bolt even struck his iconic pose with a smile on his face. "I think I lost the race to a great competitor".

"This is sport, there are no guarantees, there isn't always a happy ending".

Think of those athletes who have done everything clean, but missed out. Is this because many a fan is unaware or because Gatlin also beat the man we all wanted to win, Usain Bolt?

Barcelona forced to cancel Coutinho presentation after Liverpool hold firm
Barca saw two bids swiftly batted away for the 25-year-old, the last of which was tabled in midweek and totalled €100 million. Asked if he had to take special measures to keep Coutinho happy, Klopp said: "I can't always keep people or players happy".

Bolt, who finished third in a time of 9.95, accepted with class both the result, and the fact that, at 30, he probably is picking the ideal time to retire. He gave the sport hope. One shot-putter was grilled for ten minutes on the Chinese competition and the respective weaknesses of other athletes. He single-handedly did what nobody else before him was able to do. The unbeatable sprinter through three Olympics and four World Championships came unstuck at the final hurdle and the London crowd's reaction was extraordinary to say the least.
