Though Bolt’s final world championship race did not go as planned, he made the effort to say farewell to his fans at the stadium today.
Bolt, who fell to the track with a hamstring cramp in Saturday’s 4x100m final, returned to the London Stadium on Sunday and walked a lap of honor in front of 60,000 screaming fans. His world record times, 9.58 seconds in the 100m and 19.19 seconds in the 200m, were displayed on the video scoreboards.
Bolt ends his decorated career with 14 career world championship medals, which is tied with retired Jamaican sprinter Merlene Ottey for second all-time behind U.S. sprinter Allyson Felix. No athlete has more than Bolt’s 11 world championship gold medals
Bolt did not leave any room for interpretation when asked whether he planned on returning to the track:
He also has eight Olympic gold medals.
