Bolt clocked a season’s best 9.95 seconds to secure second place.

“I got the perfect start that I wanted, then about five steps in I stumbled a bit and that kind of threw my game off,” Usain Bolt told BBC Sport. “My legs didn’t feel like my legs coming into the straight. I guess I need to do more strength work. I think I just need time to get it back together but the fact I got a good start threw me off. At least I got under 10 seconds.”

Usain Bolt also suffered a hamstring injury at the start of this season.

  1. I”m sure justin still has steroids etc in his system…however, Bolt need more rest etc, he hasn’t fully recovered, so I’m not worried about this loss, especially it being so close, it was just Justin’s lucky day.

  2. Bolt look thin like he is not eating and training well. and why the hell Justin Gatlin still running he should be banned for life.
