London Olympics 2012: Day 9

On Sunday, Usain Bolt would try to defend the coveted title of world’s fastest man. For the last few years, people have doubted Bolt’s performance, as he false started in the World Championships 2011, and placed second on the trials to Johan Blake. Now in the finals of the men’s 100 meters, he defended his gold with world record 9.63. Blake was second with 9.75, Gatlin was 9.79, and Tyson Gay finished with 9.80.
