Gatlin blames TV scheduling for Bolt injury

13 August 2017

Usain was set to run a leg of this race, but Bleacher Report shared that he was actually unable to finish the race due to an injury that happened while he was running his leg of the relay.

Usain Bolt bows out of mainstream athletics tonight as he runs for the final time at the London Stadium in the 4x100m relay.

Bolt, having been passed the baton by Yohan Blake, was in third behind Great Britain and the United States, who eventually won gold and silver, but pulled up nearly 50m from the line and fell to the track.

But another teammate, Yohan Blake, who won Olympic relay gold with Bolt in 2012 and 2016, slammed organizers for the delay in starting the race because of medal ceremonies. It was expected that Gatlin would make up ground on the British team, though Gemili pulled away and another strong hand over to Talbot saw the British team in front.

As well as his 100m and 200m world records, he also surely holds the one for most laps of honour performed too.

Talking to tabloids and media, Bolt was all but excited ahead of his final 4×100 meters.

In a shocking end to his brilliant career, Bolt received the baton in third position and as he attempted to switch gears something went horribly wrong.

Blake has not been able to train at full pace in the leadup to the race, which will be sprint great Usain Bolt's last on the track.

That make a gap and made everything more expensive. "In the next few years City will buy one, two, maybe three players". It started with Real Madrid and [Cristiano] Ronaldo going for £80m and then [Gareth] Bale for £85m.

For Gatlin, who became the oldest 100m world champion in history last weekend and was part of the U.S. team that were beaten by Great Britain in Greece 13 years ago, it rekindled old memories.

Farah, who races at 8.20pm, is wary of the competition - which includes Kenyan-born American Paul Chelimo who came second behind him in the 5,000m at the Rio Olympics previous year.

"You've seen it with Usain Bolt".

Seeking a fitting end to his matchless long-distance racing career before moving to marathon running, the 34-year-old Briton's bid for a fifth straight global 10,000/5,000m double was scuppered as he had to settle for the silver.

I'm sure Chris will know the key for any newly-promoted team is how you do at home. "So that's the target Lacazette should set". While Alexandre Lacazette has come in to lead the line, he should add the killer instinct Arsenal fans have been calling for.
