It’s no secret that Usain Bolt is the fastest man in the world. But Bolt had to officially regain that title on Sunday after a mishap two years ago.
While Bolt was victorious in the 100-meter final on Sunday at the world championships in Moscow, he actually trailed for part of the race, as American Justin Gatlin looked primed for an upset halfway through the run. Ultimately though, Bolt and his 6”5’ frame were able to pull through, and he was able to regain his title as the fastest man in the world, a title in which he lost two years ago due to a rule break. Bolt finished with a time of 9.77 seconds.
Bolt is regarded by many as one of, if not the greatest runner of all time. This victory only adds fuel to that belief. After the win, Gatlin and Bolt embraced, showing good sportsmanship after an ultra-competitive race.
