Summary

[Usain Bolt] had won the 100 metres in Beijing and London and came in as the favorite, looking to three-peat. He was no longer the dominant force he had once been, now aging and with some injury problems, but his only international defeat at 100 metres had come at the 2011 World Championships, when he false started and was disqualified. Bolt’s biggest challenger was expected to be American [Justin Gatlin], who had lost the 2015 World Championships to Bolt by only 1/100th second. Gatlin had won the 100 gold medal at Athina in 2004, but had since served two doping suspensions, and many athletes, spectators, and media were not happy that he was still competing in major events. The two young challengers were considered to be Canada’s [Andre de Grasse], bronze medalist at the 2015 Worlds, and the United States’ [Trayvon Bromell].

All four of the leading contenders made it to the final, with Gatlin taking an early lead. Bolt opened up his huge stride at about 40 metres and the race was soon over, winning comfortably over Gatlin by 0.08 seconds, with de Grasse taking bronze. Bromell struggled and finished last in the final. Bolt would win the 200 later in the week and anchor Jamaica to a 4x100 gold medal, completing his sprint triple-triple, and cementing his status as the greatest sprinter of all-time. Gatlin had some consolation by becoming the oldest ever medalist in the 100 metres at 34-years-old. The podium was exactly the same as it had been at the 2015 World Championships.

Summary by Wikipedia
     

Usain Bolt of Jamaica entered as the world record holder, 2012 Olympic champion and the 2015 World Champion. Looking to become the first man to win three Olympic 100 m titles, he was unbeaten and ranked fourth for the season with 9.88 seconds, though injury affected his early season. The 2015 World runner-up and American champion Justin Gatlin was also unbeaten that year and held the fastest time at 9.80, though he too had had an injury in the build up. Trayvon Bromell (the third man on the 2015 podium) was the second fastest man of the season, while France's Jimmy Vicaut had twice run under 9.9 seconds, but had been beaten at the 2016 European Championships. The 2012 Olympic silver medallist and second fastest man ever Yohan Blake entered for Jamaica, but had not shown strong form since that year.

Hassan Saaid of the Maldives and Rodman Teltull of Palau were the fastest to progress from the preliminary round, both managing under 10.6 seconds. Siueni Filimone qualified but pulled a hamstring at the finish and was unable to compete in the next round. Gatlin was the fastest in the heats at 10.01, followed by Ivorian Ben Youssef Meité, Andre De Grasse of Canada, then Bolt. China's Xie Zhenye was the fifth heat winner under 10.1 seconds, setting a personal best. Vicaut narrowly progressed as a fastest non-qualifier. The most prominent casualties were European champion Churandy Martina, sub-10 Canadian Aaron Brown and sixth-ranked Qatari Femi Ogunode. Keston Bledman, a sub-10 performer was edged out for the final qualifying position by Cejhae Greene, both athletes recording the same time 10.20 rounded to the hundredth.

At the start of the final, the inner lanes got the best start, Trayvon Bromell and Justin Gatlin slightly ahead of Akani Simbine. In lane 6, Bolt came up almost even with Jimmy Vicaut. Trailing the field was Yohan Blake behing Ben Youssef Meïté to his inside. By the middle of the race, Gatlin was starting to create a gap while Bolt was starting to come back at him and moving away from from DeGrasse and Vicaut in the second group. With 60 meters gone, Bolt had closed the gap to a few meters from Gaitlin and by 70 meters was ahead of the field. This lead grew by several meters in the final 20 meters and Bolt crossed the line in a winning time of 9.81 seconds, to complete a Hat-Trick of 100m titles. Bolt's training partner, Blake had started slowly but was in full gear by the half way stage and had made a serious challenge at the field, however Blake's late rush wasn't quite enough, as DeGrasse took 3rd place, for the bronze. Gatlin finshed second, behind Bolt.

Usain Bolt's win broke 2 records; becoming the first person to win the 100 meter race 3 times and also to medal 3 times in the 100 meter race. Previously, only Carl Lewis had won two gold medals in the 100m, a feat which Bolt had matched at the London 2012 Summer Olympics. However, several milliseconds later, Gatlin, also having a place on the podium, joined him in winning three 100m medals; one gold, one silver (for this race), and one bronze, which itself made Gatlin the first man in history to win each medal in the 100 meters.

Gatlin also became the holder of the record for the longest time between their first medal and last medal in the 100m, in terms of years. His first being his gold won at the 2004 Summer Olympics and and his silver medal, 12 years later in this race.

The following evening the medals were presented by Valeriy Borzov, IOC member, Ukraine and Sebastian Coe, President of the IAAF.

Report: men's 100m final – Rio 2016 Olympic Games

If Usain Bolt established his living legend status at the London 2012 Olympic Games, athletics’ answer to Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy rolled into one carved yet another notch in history when he became the first man in history to land three successive Olympic 100m titles.

The Jamaican global icon recovered from a sluggish start to run down his US rival Justin Gatlin in the final 30 metres to stop the clock in 9.81 and clinch gold by a clear margin of 0.08.

It was the slowest time of his three Olympic successes but nobody in near-capacity Olympic stadium seemed to care, the chants of ‘Bolt, Bolt, Bolt’ echoing around before and after the race.

History had been written once again and the ‘triple triple’ is well and truly on as he chases a record-equalling nine Olympic athletics medals to match the achievements of Finnish distance legend Paavo Nurmi and American sprinter/jumper Carl Lewis.

Sunday night was Bolt’s seventh Olympic gold medal.

Gatlin – who became at the age of 34 the oldest man ever to win an Olympic 100m medal – had to settle for silver to complete the full complement of Olympic 100m medals, having also struck gold in 2004 and bronze in 2012.

Completing the podium was Canada’s rugged but effective Andre de Grasse, who trimmed 0.01 from his lifetime best to run 9.91.

Coincidentally it was the same 1-2-3 as the World Championships Beijing 2015, except on that occasion De Grasse shared his bronze medal with Trayvon Bromell.

Among the immortals

Bolt, who next goes to his marks on Tuesday morning’s 200m heats, said of his victory: “Somebody said I can become immortal. Two more medals to go and I can sign off. Immortal.  It was brilliant. I didn’t go so fast, but I’m so happy I won.”

Gatlin was satisfied with his efforts saying: “We work 365 days a year to be here for nine seconds. At the age of 34, to race these young guys and still make the podium feels so good.”

Introduced to the crowd in gladiatorial fashion, the eight finalists emerged from the tunnel one-by-one, which made for great theatre.

Ivory Coast’s Ben Youssef Meite chose to beat his chest when jogging into the stadium. Akani Simbine of South Africa looked like the cat that had got the cream.

Gatlin, a man who still polarises opinions because of his controversial history, was roundly booed crowd while Bolt – competing in a special custom-made uniform for the final – milked the applause and stepped out on to the track with arms outstretched in a pose resembling Rio’s famous Christ the Redeemer statue.

Once the gun went, Gatlin, who was running in lane four, two lanes inside Bolt, who made his customary slick start, although Simbine was actually the quickest away.   

By comparison Bolt – who had the second slowest reaction time – somewhat lumbered out the blocks and after 20 metres was last of the eight-man field.

At the halfway point, Gatlin’s advantage had extended with Bolt needing to make up at least two metres.

No need to panic

Yet as the race unfolded the giant Jamaican, with all his experience, refused to panic and almost within the blink of an eye had caught and passed the US sprinter.

He was champion, again, while Gatlin has to settle for silver.

De Grasse himself added another medal to his rising swag after unleashing a strong late finish to take the bronze.

The 2012 Olympic silver medallist Yohan Blake produced an accomplished piece of sprinting to claim fourth in 9.93, his fastest 100m time for four years.

Simbine – the first South African in an Olympic 100m final for 84 years – performed highly creditably.

He was holding a medal position with 20 metres remaining only to be see De Grasse and Blake flash by the final few strides and he had to settle for fifth in 9.94.

Meite, who had set a national record of 9.97 in the semi-final went 0.01 quicker again in the final to place sixth.

Completing the top eight, but performing under-par on this occasion, were European record holder Jimmy Vicaut (10.04) of France and 2016 world indoor 60m champion Trayvon Bromell of the USA (10.07).   

But the final word should go to the first man in history to secured a hat-trick of Olympic 100m titles who simply added: “I told you guys I was going to do it.”

Should we have ever doubted him?

Report: men's 100m semi-finals – Rio 2016 Olympic Games

With the posturing and posing of the first round over it was time for the more business-like semi-finals, right

Wrong.

It was time for more posturing and posing, at least from the defending champion Usain Bolt, who ran a storming semi-final time of 9.86 – his second fastest ever in a global semi-final and just 0.01 slower than he ran at the 2008 Olympic Games.

Bolt, ominously for his rivals, barely raised a sweat and spent much of the second half of the race either glancing around at his chief rival Andre de Grasse or grinning.

It was some statement ahead of the final later on Sunday.

Behind, Andre de Grasse ran a great race to take second in 9.92 to match his best and the time he ran when winning a bronze medal at the IAAF World Championships Beijing 2015, and he became the first Canadian to reach a men’s Olympic 100m since Donovan Bailey 20 years earlier.

In the scramble behind, IAAF World Indoor Championships Portland 2016 60m champion Trayvon Bromell pipped Great Britain’s Chijindu Ujah of Great Britain in a photo-finish. Both athletes ran 10.01 but only the American advanced on time.

Japan’s Ryota Yamagata ran a quality PB of 10.05 for fifth with the 40-year-old Kim Collins of St Kitts and Nevis missing out on the final at his fifth Olympics, placing sixth in 10.12.

Former Olympic champion Justin Gatlin clinched an expected victory in the third and final semi-final in 9.94 but appeared to be working much harder than Bolt.

The US champion made a bullet-like start but was only able to shake off the close attentions of Yohan Blake in the final 30 metres to secure the victory by 0.07 from the Jamaican.

Blake, the 2011 world 100m champion, who has suffered a few injury-ravaged seasons, qualified for his first global 100m final since winning silver behind Bolt at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Season’s best were recorded by both France’s Christophe Lemaitre (10.07) and Su Bingtian (10.08) of China in third and fourth, but both miss out on the medal race.

In the opening semi-final, Jimmy Vicaut of France hit the front mid-race before storming home in 9.95.

Behind, Ben Youssef Meite of Ivory Coast trimmed 0.02 from his national record to stop the watch at 9.97 and become the second man from his nation to reach an Olympic final – the first being Gaoussou Kone, who finished equal fifth at the 1964 Olympics.

World University Games champion Akani Simbine also qualified for the final from this race as the fastest non-automatic qualifier with a 9.98 clocking in third place to become the first South African to reach an Olympic 100m final since 1932. 

Turkey’s Jak Ali Harvey took fourth in 10.03 but will not play any part in the final.

Report: men's 100m heats – Rio 2016 Olympic Games

The opening shots were fired in the pursuit of gold in the men’s blue riband event with one or two hints at the form of some of the key contenders.

World University Games silver medallist Kemarley Brown of Bahrain edged a close-run first heat via a photo-finish from Great Britain’s Chijindu Ujah. Both were credited with the same time of 10.13 and the pair advance. Behind, the third-string US sprinter Marvin Bracy looked a little out of sorts and had to settle for third in 10.16, but the time was quick enough to advance as one of the eight additional qualifiers on time.

In heat two USA’s Justin Gatlin, the 2004 Olympic champion who is bidding to make history and become the first man in history to regain this title, looked impressive to head the qualifiers with an eye-catching victory in 10.01. The 34-year-old, who is also hoping to surpass Linford Christie as the oldest ever Olympic champion or for that matter medallist in this event, destroyed the field over the final 30 metres to finish 0.19 clear of Antigua’s Daniel Bailey.

China’s Xie Zhenye backed up the form which propelled him to fourth over 60m at the IAAF World Indoor Championships Portland 2016 to take some notable scalps to win heat three 10.08. The technically efficient Chinese sprinter trimmed 0.04 from his lifetime best and finished 0.05 clear of former world 100m finalist Nickel Ashmeade of Jamaica, who grabbed second.

Kim Collins, competing at his fifth Olympics some 20 years after making his Olympic debut in Atlanta, had to settle for fourth in 10.18 but the evergreen 40-year-old sprinter from St Kitts and Nevis will progress into the semifinals on time.

World bronze medallist Andre de Grasse showed his class to take a decisive victory in heat four. The 21-year-old Canadian laid down a marker he will be a serious threat by stopping the clock in 10.04 – some 0.09 clear of Japanese champion Asuka Cambridge.

World finalist Su Bingtian of China, who made a strong start, faded to third in 10.17 with Jimmy Vicaut of France – a 9.86 man at his best – a slightly disappointing fourth in 10.19, although the pair also advance to the semifinals as two of the eight quickest on time.

World indoor 60m champion Trayvon Bromell of the USA, who has had his injury issues this season, made a promising start but was outgunned in the final 30 metres by Ben Youssef Meite. The African champion from the Ivory Coast was an impressive winner in 10.03 – a tenth clear of Bromell, who grabbed second to advance directly into the semi-finals.

Jamaica’s 2011 world 100m champion Yohan Blake answered a few questions by easing to a trouble-free heat six win in 10.11. The 26-year-old, who has suffered more than his fair share of injury woes in recent seasons, looked in decent nick to clinch victory by 0.03 from European 100m silver medallist Jak Ali Harvey of Turkey.

Usain Bolt, bidding for a history-making hat-trick of Olympic 100m titles, cruised into the semi-finals with the minimum of fuss.

The giant Jamaican – running alongside the man who took Olympic silver behind him in 2008, Richard Thompson – took a while to get fully into his stride but was once he hit a satisfactory velocity he was content to take several cheeky glances across at Bahrain’s Andrew Fisher, who had the temerity to lead Bolt after 70 metres.

Running well within himself Bolt, predictably, crossed the line first in 10.07 – 0.05 clear of the Jamaican-born Fisher, who banked the second automatic qualification spot. Thompson had to settle for fifth in 10.29 and exited the competition.

World University Games champion Akani Simbine took out the heat eight win in 10.14 to clinch victory by 0.06 from Japan’s Ryota Yamagata. The South African heat winner – who ran a national record of 9.89 in his final pre-Rio appearance – ran impressively and on this evidence could be a factor at the business end of the competition.

Canada’s Aaron Brown – a 9.96 man at his best – placed third in 10.24 and world indoor bronze medallist Ramon Gittens of Barbados was fourth in 10.25, but both were eliminated. Another first-round victim was European champion Churandy Martina of the Netherlands, who had to settle for fifth in heat four in 10.22.
