Usain Bolt Was In Tears After He Failed To Finish In His Final Race Before Retirement

Usain Bolt’s track and field career is over, and it ended in truly sad fashion on Saturday at the IAAF Worlds. Bolt lost his last 100m race earlier this month, but on Saturday his final race was an even bigger flop. Bolt lost in the 4x100m relay for Jamaica, coming up short of the finish line in London.

Running the anchor lap of the relay, Bolt fell behind, then pulled up lame and later fell to the ground as Great Britain took the gold in the event. Great Briatan actually set a world record with their finish, while United States team took second and Japan took third. Jamaica was saddled with a DNF due to Bolt’s injury.

Here’s another video of Bolt pulling up while the competitors raced by.

Bolt was the focus of the event because it would be the last time he ever wore gold sneakers and raced professionally, and some didn’t even notice who won because they were so concerned about his injury.

Bolt was reportedly in tears after his final race, though it’s unclear if it’s from emotion after his last race or pain. It’s far from the terrifyingly fast career he carved out before announcing his retirement earlier this year.
