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