Bolt injured, UK wins the relay, US comes in 2nd. Bolt wasn't going to win anyways considering Jamaica was 3rd when he got the baton.

Not surprised Bolt had a disappointing ending this year. He didn't show up to most of the events on the track and field calendar this year. He basically "retired" mentally after the 2016 Olympics when he pretty much accomplished everything in his career. Once you check out mentally it doesn't take much to relax in your training so you aren't in peak physical conditioning when it comes to the races. You have guys that are still hungry like Gatlin who still had something to prove in the 100m.

I went to it, my seats were not far from the finish line, crowd was pretty gutted when he went down. Even though it was GB that won, the crowd seemed to want Bolt to win it.

Waiting for the doping reports to come out, no way he's clean. Then again he's the best of the dirty
