Usain Bolt reclaims world 100m title at World Athletics

Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt reclaimed his world 100m title at World Athletics in true style by clocking a season's best 9.77 seconds amid heavy rain at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on Sunday. The Jamaican regained the world championship he lost two years ago by leaving behind American Justin Gatlin - 9.85sec and Nesta Carter, also of Jamaica - 9.95sec.

 
The 26-year-old Bolt caught up with speed despite getting a late start in the downpour. "I am happy but I wanted to do better," Bolt told reporters. 
 
"My legs were sore after the semi-finals, I don't know why, but the world record wasn't on so I came out just to win. Back in Jamaica, they do not expect less than that from me. They always expect me to dominate," he continued. 
 
"The last 30 metres I kind of got long in my legs, I didn't execute well," said Justin Gatlin, silver medal winner and 2004 Olympic champion. Twenty five thousand fans had showed up at the stadium to cheer the sport.
