Usain Bolt beaten by Justin Gatlin in 100m in Rome

US sprinter Justin Gatlin beat six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt in the men's 100 metres race at the Rome Golden Gala, Diamond League, which took place today. Justin beat Usain by one-hundredth of a second, that's like 1% of a second. Justin actually had to dip his head over the line to win in 9.94 seconds. Usain came in 9.95.

Usain was making his first appearance in the Diamond League this season since his recent recovery from a hamstring injury. Usain explained what happened to him:
"I got the perfect start that I wanted, then about five steps in I stumbled a bit and that kind of threw my game off. My legs didn't feel like my legs coming into the straight. I guess I need to do more strength work. I think I just need time to get it back together but the fact I got a good start threw me off. At least I got under 10 seconds. 
 "It is always a good thing to lose. You can figure how to step it up. I knew I wasn't in great shape but I'm not worried. It takes time to get back into shape and I didn't expect much from this race."
Usain's next race will be in the men's 200m in next Thursday's Diamond League meeting in Oslo.

No records were broken so he is still the fastest. Coming back from injury you gotta cut him some slacks.

Bolt never fails to deliver at the big stage and that's what I love about him. Gatling beating him don't call for panicking. It's normal to lose at some point . Heck even Blake beat bolt at some point

Kudos to Gatlin buh he shoulda done it @ the Olympics tho... Medicine after death. Bolt still rule

It happens....losing just ones after about 3 years of being the champion ain't a bad deal so long has he bounces back after this. He is still the fastest man in the world though #Carpe Diem and Tempus fugit - even 0.01 seconds count in life

Gatlin has improve over the years even after a four year ban he's still among the best. Mind you he was once the fastest man on earth

Kbouy said...

it is just a race,not taken away anything from Gatlin, he can win all diamond league series. Bolt just need to win one more Olympic 100M final to be the greatest athlete of our time.
its good to excel when it matter most.

Hrm paul ojeih said...

Linda na effiz gatlin dey do he has had his career tainted with drug abuse if u watch that race clearly he beat bolt by fractional second which means if usain used his head it would have been a tie usain allowed him to win don't forget till date the world athletic federation still has not been able to clock usain bolts speed dey dont know how fast that boy can go so let gatlin enjoy the Moscow meet will determine

All is politics n hype. Bolt knows what he is doing,he wants the world to talk about him b4 the next big thing, which is the olympics. So he allowed is fellow country man (Blake)to beat him in the jamaican 100 meter trials b4 d olympics,during the olympics not only did he beat Blake, he went out and set a new world record.Usain he just allowing allowing Gatling to get his groove back after all the controversies.Bolt bad boy you can fool some pple sometimes but u cant fool all pple all d time, so said your countryman d Great Bob Marley. Rmber Bolt world record is 9.58 not 9.94
