Bolt could only be third in his last 100 meters with title to Gatlin in the London-2017 World Championship, his last participation in the distance before his retirement, while Veteran American Justin Gatlin took the title.

Gatlin, 35, who had won the Olympic title in Athens-2004 and the World championship in Helsinki-2005, before serving a four-year ban on doping, won with a time of 9.92, ahead of fellow American Christian Coleman (9.94 ) And Bolt, who won the bronze (9.95).

Bolt equaled his best time of the season on July 21 in Monaco, but was not enough to win, although in his last effort put his head and chest and left doubts about his final position, while the public London Olympics looked forward to the result, AFP said.

When it was announced as winner to Gatlin, the stadium was full of boos, due to its past with the doping.

The race served as a revenge for US athletics on the Jamaican sprinters, after the absolute dominance of the Caribbean island in the test, with Bolt as a banner.

While Gatlin took the gold, with silver for young Coleman (21), who holds the best record of the season, Jamaica had to settle for Bolt’s third place and Yohan’s fourth Blake (9.99).
