Usain Bolt Finished Third In His Last Race, And His Fans Couldn't Have Cared Less
The Jamaican sprinter took the bronze medal in his final solo race, but people still know he's great.
You guys know Usain Bolt, right? Quick as lightning, fastest man alive, Usain Bolt.
Well, the 30-year-old ran his last 100-meter race at the world championship in London Saturday, and walked away with a bronze medal.
It was close. In fact, Bolt was .03 seconds away from finishing first in his last individual race. Alas, it wasn't meant to be, and American Justin Gatlin took the win.
But Bolt, easily the crowd favorite and one of the most recognizable faces in the sport, took his third-place slot gracefully.
Even Gatlin, who won the race, had to pay his respects to the fastest man alive.
Thanks for the memories, Bolt! It went by too fast.
