Bolt prepares to say goodbye as Jamaica reach 4x100m final

"There was Mo Farah, the Kenyans, Ethiopians and other runners, all world class".
Jamaica set the sprint relay world record of 36.84 seconds at the 2012 Olympics at the London Stadium.
Bolt has left the world of athletics with an wonderful legacy and his country Jamaica can be proud that once again it has given the world a superstar, just like it did when Bob Marley's music became a global phenomenon. Otherwise, those who would replace Bolt in the headlines have flopped. Gatlin quickly became a rogue of modern athletics and has been greeted by boos and jeers in some of his races.
The 26-year-old from Sand Hill, Miss., the silver medal victor in the 100 at the Rio Olympics last August, coming in second to Thompson, ended an impressive stretch for the 25-year-old from Manchester, Jamaica. Or, indeed, when they had been committed. All this has happened two days ago but it seems the world has still not come to terms with it. The presence of "small amounts" of the substance was attributed entirely to Gatlin's Adderall medication, which he had been taking since age fourteen to treat the attention-deficit disorder (ADD) that he was diagnosed with as a nine-year-old.
In 2006, he was banned for eight years, later reduced to four on appeal, after testing positive for the banned steroid testosterone. Gatlin maintained his innocence, claiming the failed test was due to testosterone cream rubbed into his legs by his masseuse, a disgruntled, soon-to-be ex-employee. We greet each other most cordially before the race, we have known each other for years.
So, yes, Gatlin has been convicted of two drug offences, but one was questionable, and he maintains his innocence over the other. "A lot of people have come out of nowhere and are running unbelievably, and I just don't think they're doing it without drugs", he told a British TV interviewer.
"I think I'm a very lucky person in life", he said. This is the morality of the Daily Mail: a world in black and white, where nuance and understanding are pushed aside to fit an ethical picture that those who consider themselves morally superior wish to paint.
One week after Bolt's bronze in the 100m, he is expected to headline the Jamaican relay team in the last scheduled race of his illustrious career.
High level athletes are highly motivated individuals who make some pretty extreme sacrifices and I am sure there comes a time when many of them have to look at their careers in respect of how far or much further they can go on just sheer ability. From 2008 to 2016, Bolt only lost the gold medal race twice: when he had a false start and his team was disqualified.
On the last day of his global career, fans jostled for space to have a glimpse of Bolt at the warm-up arena, adjacent to the stadium and television cameras were fixed at him to have a shot of the towering Jamaican.
Many countries also pay their athletes for competing and winning at the Olympics, and Jamaica is no exception.
The final takes place at 21:50 BST.
But there will be no Super Saturday this time around. Being the best in the world at anything is incredibly hard. Perhaps, we are so in thrall of winning that everything else will be forgotten in return for success. That he's the world champion today is an undeniable testament to his (natural) talent and hard work.
