He actually came 3rd. Young American kid (Coleman) beat him too.

Had a chit start and just couldn't turn up the afterburners at the 50m mark the way that he always had before.

A shame... but still by far the greatest sprinter of all time. It'll be weird not seeing him and Phelps at the next Olympics.

Is he retiring? Why is this his final race?

Is he retiring? Why is this his final race?Because he has chronic turf toe.

Margin of error is very small. nagging injuries, peaked a little bit off, bad start etc. but lately bolt has had a lot of injuries, he's way taller so I assume he's probably more prone to injuries, and he has multiple sclerosis iirc

His feet are still in better shape than most NBA players.

He just hasn't cared this past year after winning the gold. He even was going to retire, but his sponsors convinced him to come back for one more year. He even admitted to being out of shape before the race

No 200m, but he will run the 4x100m Saturday (12/08).

He will return in glory to the Olympics, his ego can't handle ending his career on a bronze

You can't just pick and choose when you make a statement like that.

he ran in the 4x100 meter and pulled up lame. he didn't even finish.


that would leave a bad taste in anyone's mouth.

He probably got bored or burned out from running his entire life. After winning the Olympic 100M dash 3 straight times, he's already considered the GOAT runner and reached the top of the mountain. This feels similar to Phelps where after he won 8 golds in 2008, he was already the best. He did come back in '12 and '16, but it's not like he got gold in every single event then. Still doesn't take away from his GOAT status.

greatest sprinter of all time loses for the first time since 2013 by .03 and he "got slow".

he didn't run his best race and wasn't as conditioned as he was during his prime. no one stays in their prime forever and no one PRs every day. Bolt is GOAT.
