Bowie wins second gold medal at World Championships

IAAF president Doping will not be tolerated

Great Britain's men's 4×100 metres relay team claimed a stunning gold medal amid chaotic scenes at the World Championships in London as Usain Bolt's glorious career ended in injury and agony.

He looked clearly injured and jerked backwards sharply, then put his foot to the ground gingerly and tried to step. he tumbled forward in a somersault and laid on the track as all other runners crossed the finish line. As the official results flashed on the big screen, the crowd cheered wildly for Britain's second gold medal of these championships.

"There's a lot more decisions to be made in a shorter race". I would ask him to accept our gratitude for an fantastic career which raised our national profile; a career in which he proudly carried his Jamaicanness around the world; a career which contributed much to development of a sport industry in Jamaica; a career which rescued global athletics. "We hope for the best for him".

Furious Yohan Blake hit out at organisers after Usain Bolt's dramatic final race at the World Championships.

He will end his track career at the Diamond League final in Zurich on August 24 after racing at the Diamond League meet in Birmingham next Sunday.

"No one wants to see Usain go out like that, with an injury on the track in that way", said Justin Gatlin, who took gold in the 100 and helped the US men win silver in the 4x100 relay.

60,000 people gasped as their hero jumped, hobbled and then crumbled to the floor, as Great Britain sprinted away to a maiden gold medal with the US and Japan in tow.

100m champion Justin Gatlin called Bolt "still the best in the world" after he won silver behind Great Britain, and also felt that the weather may have played a part in Bolt's injury.

"Whether he was a successful sports person or not, I think he would still have that flamboyant character".

"It was a recipe".

"He's a showman, he wants to come out and I think he'll do a great job if he comes back to track and field". We were hanging around inside the stadium for too long with our clothes off and i think that's where Usain Bolt's injury came from. That's what he suffered with.

"It's heart-wrenching, I gave it my all and I really wanted Usain to leave golden - even if it was just a medal", added 23-year-old Omar McLeod.

"Usain Bolt treats you the same whether you are a dignitary or the poorest man in the world".

"We were in the stadium for a while, you guys know how chilly it is down here", he said.
