Usain Bolt Places First in 200m, Justin Gatlin Fails to Advance

Usain Bolt puts his hands over his mouth after competing in the Men’s 200m Semifinals during the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics at the Olympic Stadium on Wednesday (August 17) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The 29-year-old runner from Jamaica came in first with a time of 19.78 seconds.

Unfortunately, Team U.S.A. member Justin Gatlin finished in third, one spot shy of qualifying for the final.

“It’s a showman’s sport’” Justin said (via USA Today). “I think the rivalry that I have with Usain and myself has turned it into a professional-wrestling feel. You know, everyone’s cheering for Usain but they have to have someone they’ve got to boo against.’”
