Ja­maica’s Usain Bolt (above) revved up the crowd at Lon­don’s Olympic Sta­dium on Fri­day at the track and field world cham­pi­onships, then coasted to vic­tory in his first-round heat in the 100 meters. Af­ter a bad start, Bolt clocked a time of 10.07 sec­onds. Amer­i­can Justin Gatlin, the big­gest threat to Bolt in the event, eas­ily won his heat in 10.05 sec­onds.
