Athletics is set to lose superstars Usain Bolt and Mo Farah

Later on, an emotional night of world-class athletics in London as Mo Farah and Usain Bolt compete on the track for the last time in a major championship. Mills made a deal with Bolt. Kendra Harrison missed out on qualifying for the USA's Olympic team in Rio but, incredibly, just a fortnight later at the Anniversary Games in London smashed the world record that had stood for longer than she'd been alive! The Jamaican legend made it to the podium to claim his medal only this time, it was not gold nor silver but bronze.

And so it proved, Bolt trailing home in third behind Christian Coleman and Justin Gatlin or Drug Cheat Justin Gatlin-Booooo to give him his official BBC name.

While Bolt has never been the subject of doping allegations, many of his fellow Jamaican sprinters have and concerns over a lack of testing in the country have been addressed.

Bolt said his emotions were still in check at the thought of bowing out of track and field.

After easing past the finish line, Bolt ran down the track as he usually does and clapped towards the crowd. In that period, his amassed six gold medals in the 100m race, seven gold medals in the 200m race and six gold medals in 4x100m event. No regrets, I came out and did my best; win lose or draw.

The first instance was in 2011 when he faltered with a false start in the 100 metres finals at the World Championship in Daegu, South Korea. While other cocky athletes such as Muhammad Ali, Terrell Owens, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Deion Sanders caused a legion of sports fans to hate them for their antics, Bolt somehow managed to playfully charm his way into almost universal love and support.

"The place is wonderful and I appreciated this crowd so much". All nine are by Bolt.

The top three from each of the two heats and next two fastest finishers from the remaining qualify for the final round.

Coe - who had said prior to being elected president of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) he felt "queasy" about dopers returning and winning titles - remarked he wasn't very excited about the prospect of placing the gold medal around Gatlin's neck.

Bolt seems to enjoy his fame and fortune.

"You could see in the heat, they wanted to prove a point and show me". "Good for him, otherwise, I think the sport would have dragged him down". However, Bolt was all smiles and gracious in defeat. On Saturday, August 12, Bolt is slated to run in his last race overall, representing Jamaica in the 4x100m relay finals. And why not? Even with the loss, Bolt is ready to entire retirement as possibly the most popular figure the sport has ever known. Bolt's earnings for this year updated as of June: $34.2 million. "Usain Bolt is a genius".

The world of athletics would have wanted another passing of the baton at a time when its biggest star, the CV clean and without the slightest suspicion, has chose to hang up the spikes. Granted, this was because a member of his relay team tested positive.
