Usain Bolt Injured in 4x100m Race, Britain Claims Victory

London (August 13, 2017): In the final race of his illustrious career, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt fell down with a potential injury in the 4×100 relay final Saturday at the world championships.

Usain Bolt’s farewell appearance at the world championships ended in disastrous fashion as he pulled up injured on the final leg of the men’s 4x100m relay Saturday.

Bolt took the baton for Jamaica in third place but within a few strides he had fallen to the ground, clutching his left leg, as host Britain secured a shock gold ahead of a United States team containing Justin Gatlin.

Bolt beaten into third in the individual 100m behind Gatlin and his US team compatriot Christian Coleman, was comforted by teammates after getting to his feet, his face etched in pain.

The capacity crowd in the London Stadium was still digesting the shock earlier defeat for home hero Mo Farah in the men’s 5,000m final, before the drama of Bolt’s last agonizing appearance.

Victory for the British quartet of CJ Ujah, Adam Gemili, who ran a storming second leg, Daniel Talbot and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake was stunning compensation for Farah’s earlier defeat.

They won in 37.47 seconds, with the US taking silver at 0.05sec and Japan with a surprise bronze.
