The qualification round of the men’s 4x100 meters relay saw the crowd welcoming the great Usain Bolt amidst loud cheers. As he took pigeon steps to place the marker for exchanging the baton from the incoming runner, ‘lightning Bolt’ looked completely at ease
Without any shadow of doubt it is the last day of Bolt’s sprinting career. The Jamaican men’s 4*100 relay team is chasing their fifth World Championship gold. Usain Bolt successfully steered his Jamaica team through to the final of the men’s 4x100m, setting up the last race of his career.
Bolt ran the anchor leg for Jamaica and pulled away down the home straight, having taken the baton just behind France and China. He was seen cruising to the finish line as usual.
In the first heat, Great Britain were close to record pace in reaching the final, finishing just behind the United States.
Will it be a golden send off to one of the greatest athletes of all time, as he prepares for the final showdown ?
