Usain Bolt claimed a record third 100m title


boltsBolt, 29, ran 9.81 seconds to beat Justin Gatlin to gold and follow up his titles at Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

He remains on course for the sprint ‘treble treble’ with the 200m and the 4x100m relay to come. “I expected to go faster, but I’m happy that I won,” he told BBC Sport. “I’m here to perform. I did what I had to.”
