Day 2 highlight of the IAAF World Championships 2015 in Beijing is all about Usain Bolt!!! He was under pressure to keep his title. Justin Gatlin had an amazing season and clocked fast finish times in the semis. But Bolt is still King!
During the semis, Gatlin finished at the top of Heat 2 with 9.77 seconds. It’s a time fit for a gold medal. Bolt finished 9.96 in to be top in Heat 1.
Coming in the finals, Gatlin was a favorite to finally snatch the title of being the world’s fastest man. He looks nervous. Bolt looks nervous as well.
It was a very very close race. Bolt (JAM) wins GOLD with a time of 9.79 seconds. Gatlin (USA) settles for SILVER with 9.80 seconds. Just a 0.01 second difference. Bromell (USA) and De Grasse (CAN) took BRONZE with 9.92 seconds.
