Usain Bolt Keeps 100 Meter Title

Usain Bolt won gold in the 100 meter race at the World Championship in Beijing Sunday, beating the favorite Justin Gatlin. Gatlin had won 28 straight races and was also a controversial figure for having used performance-enhancing drugs in the past. Bolt won by a hundredth of a second, chalking up his third 100 meter title after struggling earlier in the season. He has won a total of nine gold medals in world titles.
