    Unlike the previous OGs and WCs he didn't know if he could win. You could tell before he ran his semi, he wasn't confident. Had to work hard to win this, couldn't relax like he did in the <9.7 runs.

    It looked like heavy rain. It's much harder to run through water, so that's an amazing time.

    Does anyone have the split times?

    Completely disagree. This was the easiest win Bolt had served up on a platter for him since the 2011 Worlds. He looked very relaxed to me; both pre-race and during the race. Last year at the Olympics, he looked pretty nervous before the race. This was the most predictable major 100m final in a long time.

    It really wasn't that bad. The conditions weren't great, but there is no reason Bolt wouldn't have gone mid to low 9.6 if he was in top form. Gatlin ran 9.85 which is only .08 off his PB.

    I reckon the rain accounted for around 0.10 being added to the times, but I get the point, decent race but certainly not a classic.

    I agree with you. The commentators would continuously mention how he did not look that good in the rounds. You would think that after years of him looking relaxed in the rounds or as the commentators put it "looking vulnerable" they would notice that he just doesnt try in the rounds. Its almost as though people want to be the one to say that they saw Bolt losing coming. There was no way he was going to lose.

    I agree, Gay/Blake would have won. Justin had a chance but he started to press late.

    naw I don't know. bolt has shown many times that he rises to the occasion. so whats to say he wouldn't have ran faster
