LEGENDS BID FAREWELL
Last year, Usain Bolt, the eight time Olympic gold medalist and world record holder in the 100 and 200 meters, told the sporting world that he aspired to be included in the pantheon of sports with Pele and Mohammed Alli. For all instant and purpose the Jamaican sprinter is already there ever since he rose to prominence in 2008, he never lost a race when it counted. Not even giant like Michael Phelps or Bjorn Daehile can make that claim.
Bolt has announced that he will retire after this season and that the world championship will be his last major competition, he will only be racing the 100-meters (and the 4×100 relay), where the final is scheduled for august5. Don’t miss the chance to see Bolt in action. Surely we won’t see someone like him again.
Along with Usain Bolt.The IAAF World championship will also be the last major championship for Mo Farah, the British distance runner who has been unbeatable in recent year and will be looking to pull of the previous unthinkable feat of winning both the 5,000 and the 10,000 meters for the third consecutive time in the world championship competition.
It is not really fair that someone can be so good for so long. But it’s mesmerizing to behold.
