End of an Era for Athletics

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

It will be the end of an era for athletics when Usain Bolt races for the last time in the men’s 4x100m relay at the world championships.

The Jamaican is hoping to step away from the track having won his 20th global championship title, something he was denied last week when he finished third in the 100m behind American Justin Gatlin.

Fans flocking to the London Stadium on Saturday will probably be treated to a double dose of the 30-year-old sprint legend as Bolt plans to take part in the relay heats in the day’s first session.

There will be a fair amount of emotion from the stands as Mo Farah also runs in his last track race, the 5,000m final.
