Not the way we expected a star to exit; not like that. But that's the nature of the Sports

Bolt was clearly not 100% fit for these Championships...still the Greatest!

I would agree with that. In the middle of most races, he looked a lumbering giant, nothing smooth in his actions and he was gritting his teeth coming to the end of the races. Not the relaxed and confident Bolt of old.

Winning is intoxicating, very few athletes have the discipline to quit while in their prime.

He has earned the right to quit when he wants to..this will take nothing away from his status as the Greatest T & F athlete ever!
