Usain Bolt regained his world 100 meters crown and restored some credibility to a sport tarnished by a plethora of doping scandals as he scorched to gold in 9.77 seconds in Moscow on Sunday.
A false start at the 2011 World Championships had left him with the only championship blemish to his illustrious career, since his rise to superstardom started at the 2008 Olympic Games.
“It’s always great to get back your title,” Usain Bolt said. “I’m happy with myself I got it done.”
American sprint veteran Justin Gatlin won silver and Jamaican sprinter Nester Carter won bronze.
