BOLT RELAYS HIS JOY TO EVERYONE
USAIN Bolt capped the world championships by winning a third gold as anchor of Jamaica’s 4x100m relay team, while the US were disqualified to hand China silver.
Bolt ran a blistering final leg at a packed Bird’s Nest stadium, hurtling through the line in 37.36 seconds after teammates Nesta Carter, Asafa Powell and Nickel Ashmeade.
The win gave Bolt his 11th world gold medal – his only blemish being the 100m at the 2011 Daegu worlds in South Korea, when he was disqualified after a false start.
The US quartet of 100m bronze and silver medallists Trayvon Bromell and Justin Gatlin, and fellow finalists Tyson Gay and Mike Rodgers, were initially awarded silver before being disqualified over a botched final handover which strayed beyond the passover limit.
China delighted the home crowd when they were upgraded to silver in 38.01sec, while Canada moved up to bronze (38.13).
