Usain Bolt Wins 100m Final Moscow World Championships

Lightning strikes twice as Bolt cruises to 100m gold as sprint king holds of Gatlin in Moscow

It is not just the performance you are guaranteed from Bolt, it is the entire package: the theatre, the showmanship and the charisma.

This year, in a 100m landscape charged with controversy, it felt more important than ever that athletics’ leading man delivered the result the world wanted to see in Moscow. He had to work for it, though.

The 25-year-old took considerable positives from surviving all three 100m rounds after being unable to practise with starting blocks or run at all for almost a month owing to a hip flexor strain.

But his rustiness was telling in the final 30 metres of all his races. Even so, Dasaolu still broke the 10-second barrier for the second time in his career in the semi-finals, clocking 9.97.
