Preview:Usain Bolt, the superstar who made athletics fun and watchable for the past decade returns to the track for the final time Saturday to run on Jamaica's 4x100-meter relay team. I don't want to say this, I understand we need to be ready early, but I think we took our clothes off a little too early. The walk was too long.
"Usain was getting cold and he said "I don't like this". 40 minutes and two medal presentations before our run".
"But we've got to make sure we come out and have our sticks right because it'll be another competitive race just like the 100 was, but I'm definitely looking forward to the challenge".
"We were over warm".
This was going on in Bolt's mind, he did not conform to the expectations of his teammates.
He said: "It's heart-wrenching".
Blake said: "I'm very distraught".
"But it was ridiculous".
"To be holding us so long was atrocious". He would take both golds in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics as well, along with a raft of World Championship medals and broken records.
But there was no final flourish for a man who has been not only one of global sport's great athletes, but one of its great entertainers as well.
"He didn't tell us exactly what happened but from what I saw, it looked like a strain or a cramp of some sort", teammate Julian Forte told IAAF radio.
McLeod got Jamaica off to a good start, but Gatlin helped close the gap on the back straight. "So it's just really insane".
Bolt's farewell hasn't gone according to plan after he was surprisingly beaten in the 100m final which was the last individual race of his career.
"It's cramp in his left hamstring but a lot of pain is from disappointment from losing the race", Jamaican team doctor Kevin Jones said.
"The last three weeks have been hard for him". The was his farewell race and we wish him the best and hope he recovers soon.
Silver by American Relay Team and Japan won bronze medal.
The United States, featuring 100m champion Justin Gatlin, will provide the biggest danger in their aim to win the event for a first time in ten years. "From 2008 on, Usain Bolt has done incredible things and tonight is not going to define who he is. We will go and prepare well for tonight". He is still the man.
