*To say Usain Bolt is fast is an understatement.
Dude is lightening fast! After all, his name is Usain BOLT, right?
Well anyway, on Sunday in Moscow at the 14th IAAF World Athletics Championships, he reclaimed his 100-meter world gold crown he lost through a false start in South Korea two years ago.
Now, the Olympic champion once again holds every major sprint title there is.
And he shook off rain, sore legs, a slow start and any doubters Sunday to prove there never has been an athlete quite like him.
“For me to come in and regain my title, it’s always great to be back,” Bolt said.
Despite getting late out of the blocks in the downpour, the Jamaican superstar steadily caught up with 2004 Olympic champion Justin Gatlin and left the American behind with a trademark late burst of speed that, still, no one can match.
“I came out here just to execute and get it right and to win,” Bolt said. “That’s what I do.”
Gatlin made it more of race than many thought he could, staying ahead until the closing stages.
