Bolt got off to a poor start -- his reaction time of 0.183 seconds was nearly the slowest in the race by a full .03 seconds, the only slower reaction being that of China's Bingtian Su who would finish last.
Bolt's world records may remain standing, but he would not accomplish his goal of remaining undefeated in the 100m through the end of his career.
Bolt will return later in the championships to anchor Jamaica's 4x100m team in the hopes of one final gold medal.
Farewell Bolt, and thanks for the memories
