For the first time in almost a decade, the world's fastest man isn't named Usain Bolt.
Usain Bolt of Jamaica, who placed third, with victor Justin Gatlin of the US after the 100m final.
The fastest qualifiers are always awarded the more preferable middle lanes.
I have since seen attempts to defend Gatlin, and the crowd slammed for the way they acted.
Acknowledging Bolt's greatness, Gatlin kneeled and bowed to his longtime adversary moments after the race. "I'm not in shape to run 200 meters right now". Usain Bolt is it!
High level athletes are highly motivated individuals who make some pretty extreme sacrifices and I am sure there comes a time when many of them have to look at their careers in respect of how far or much further they can go on just sheer ability.
Jamaica's team consisted of Tyquendo Tracey, Julian Forte, Michael Campbell and Usain Bolt.
"I'm sorry for not being able to finish on a win, but I thank you for your support", was launched to the crowd the one who has been the hero of the evening, even in defeat, and, good player, has been offered a brace of good, thanks to his executioner.

Paramedics arrived on scene shortly afterwards and were able to save the officer's life despite the serious nature of his wounds. Smith is still on medical leave, but he told WJCL that he wants to return to the department by the start of next year.
Second school district blames company for failed bus plan
Motorists should slow down, pay attention and anticipate school children and buses, especially in neighborhoods and school zones. School bus drivers will activate the buses flashing amber/yellow lights when preparing to stop to load and/or unload children.
Juveniles put baby inside refrigerator, post video on Snapchat
The baby's mother said she was away from the house for a little over half an hour when the Snapchat was posted. The video (posted below) shows a baby crying before being placed inside a refrigerator by one of the girls.
In semifinals earlier that same day, Bolt finished a narrow second to Coleman, but neither man seemed to be pushing it to the limit in the final meters. So the 30-year-old has the scope to compete in the relay heats this time. Many of his green and gold clad Jamaican countrymen had crossed the Atlantic to witness his grand finale.
But this should take nothing away from Farah's success particularly at a time when distance running is arguably more competitive than ever before.
There may never have been an anti-climax in sport quite as deflating as Saturday's 100 metres final when Bolt, in his last solo race, proved both beatable and stoppable, defeated by the two-time doping offender Justin Gatlin.
"Physically I am allright, there is a little bit of pain, but nothing a massage can't cure, I'm taking it easy", Bolt said of his condition two days after finishing third despite clocking his season's best-equalling 9.95 seconds in the 100 metres final. "I've done all I can for the sport and myself". He owns the world record in the 100m, 200m and as part of the 4x100m Jamaican relay team.
The U.S. men took silver in 37.52 but for a nation that used to be totally dominant in the event, it was only their second medal in the last eight global finals after a series of world championship and Olympic disqualifications. The Brit is in line for his fifth consecutive 5,000m/10,000m double across two Olympics and three World Championships, after which he will move from track-racing to road-racing.
It's not all over. For Bolt, it goes beyond winning.
Bolt still has the 4x100 relay next weekend. And he could always change his mind about retirement. This is why it is, indeed, a sad tale for athletics that it was Justin Gatlin, a 35-year-old athlete who has had a drug blemished career that is now the world 100 meters champion. Gatlin quickly became a rogue of modern athletics and has been greeted by boos and jeers in some of his races.
