Usain Bolt Injured in Final Career Race
Saturday August 12th, 2017

Jamaica’s Usain Bolt pulled up injured in the final race of his career, Saturday’s 4x100 meter relay at the World Championships in London.

Bolt could not finish the race and sought medical attention as Great Britain raced to gold in the event.

Jamaica’s team doctor later issued a statement calling Bolt’s injury a hamstring cramp, but noting that “a lot of pain is from disappointment from losing the race.”

Bolt finishes with 14 career world championship medals (eleven gold) and eight Olympic golds.
