2012 London Olympics - Day 9
The nine fastest runners in the world shoot out of their starting blocks at the start of the men's 100m final at the Olympic Stadium. Usain Bolt of Jamaica won in a new Olympic record time of 9.63.
Usain Bolt completed a remarkably comfortable victory given the quality and strength of the field in the 100m final.
Usain Bolt was slow out of the blocks but once his giant stride got going he was unbeatable once again, leaving Ryan Bailey (L) and 2004 Olympic champion Justin Gatlin (R, bronze) in his wake with the second-fastest time in history.
