It was a battle for supremacy in the 100-meter men’s race on the track at Olympic Stadium in Rio de Janeiro last night.
Bolt, in lane 4 has won the gold medal in 2008 and 2012. The 29 year old is currently world-record holder for this race. Usain Bolt has held onto his title, finishing the race in 9.81, enough to take the gold he was trailing Gatlin for the first half, but he then turned on the speed to win. Gatlin was just .08 seconds behind, and won the silver. Canadian Andre De Grasse took the bronze with a time of 9.91.
