MOSCOW---Usain Bolt restored
order to the world of sprinting.
Regaining the 100-metre world
championship gold he lost through
a false start two years ago, the
Olympic champion once again
holds every major sprint title there
is.And he shook off rain, a slow
start and any doubters yesterday
to prove there never has been an
athlete quite like him.
Despite getting late out of the
blocks in the downpour, the
Jamaican superstar steadily caught
up with 2004 Olympic champion
Justin Gatlin and left the American
behind with a trademark late burst
of speed that, still, no one can
If the result was predictable, the
demeanor was not.
At 26, he has left most the hot-
dogging that has made him famous
While he used to start celebrat-
ing well before the finish on big
wins, he remained expressionless
this time as he ran across the line
watching his performance on the
giant screen in front of him.
It took him several minutes of
understated celebrations before he
unleashed the mighty "Lightning
Bolt" pose that made him famous
across the globe.
His winning time was almost
irrelevant, 9.77 seconds, .19 sec-
onds slower than his world record.
Gatlin crossed second in 9.85, while
Bolt s teammate, Nesta Carter, took
bronze in 9.95.
If Bolt did not produce a sense
of theater himself, the elements
did it for him. Lightning flashed
over Luzhniki Stadium half an hour
before the final, and the rain started
pouring in as the finalists entered
To the cheers of about 25,000
fans, the stadium address system
started blaring Bob Marley s classic
"Three Little Birds" and he was
loosening his neck muscles to the
lyrics, "Don t worry, bout a thing.
Cause every little thing is gonna
be all right."
It was for him. Not his oppo-
Gatlin had beaten Bolt in Rome
early this season, and could take
some hope from a blistering start
on Sunday. But once those huge
strides of Bolt started catching up
with him, it was all over.
MOSCOW---When Aleksandr Ivanov
saw a challenger edge past him late
in the race, he didn t panic.
Instead, the 20-year-old Russian
kept calm and soon regained the lead,
and eventually the gold medal yesterday
in the men s 20-kilometre walk at the
The turning point came with about
two kilometres to go when Erick Bar-
rondo surged past Ivanov, but the
Guatemalan was soon kicked out of
the race with a third yellow card.
"I saw the moment he was disqual-
ified," said Ivanov, the youngest-ever
winner of a walk race at the worlds.
"He was ahead of me, but I had a feel-
ing I shouldn t try to chase him, and
this feeling was right."
Ivanov won the race that started and
ended in Luzhniki Stadium in 1 hour,
20 minutes, 58 seconds, more than ten
seconds ahead of Olympic gold medal-
ist Chen Ding of China. Miguel Angel
Lopez of Spain took bronze.
Conditions were a challenge to every
racer s resolve. Although the race began
and ended in the stadium, most of the
race was run on a loop outside that
offered little shade or relief from late-
afternoon heat of 29 degrees C (84
Ivanov s win delighted the hometown
Race walking is popular in Russia
and fans had been disappointed that
defending champion Valery Borchin
had pulled out due to injuries.
"There is a change of generation in
our race-walking team," Ivanov said,
"and I think that today we, the young
ones, represented our country well."
MOSCOW---For some of the 400-
metre sprinters at the world champi-
onships, the topic of Oscar Pistorius
remains either taboo or simply not
And yet for Olympic champion Kirani
James, there s almost a sense of disap-
pointment that Pistorius wasn t present
for the event s opening round yesterday.
The South African double-amputee
won t compete as he prepares for his
A year ago in London, the "Blade
Runner" was one of the faces of the
Olympics as Pistorius enthralled the
capacity crowds not so much with his
performances, but through his perse-
James even swapped nametags with
Pistorius at the London Games, just to
have a keepsake. The defending world
champion from Grenada recently ran
across Pistorius detachable jersey num-
ber while moving into a new apartment
and intends to frame it.
"For him not to be here, it s something
the sport is missing," said James, who
had the second-fastest time in quali-
fying. "I ve always seen him as an inspi-
ration for not just sports but life---in
terms of no matter where you re from
or what disability you have, whether
it s physical or mental, you can still do
something you love and be good and
proud of doing it.
"He has a very special situation. I ll
be praying for him."
Pistorius is charged with premeditated
murder in the Valentine Day s shooting
death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
He will return to court on August 19---
six days after the 400 final at worlds.
If convicted, Pistorius could be look-
ing at a life sentence in prison, with a
minimum of 25 years.
Pistorius has dropped out of all com-
petitions this year to focus on his trial.
He denies the murder charge, saying
he thought Steenkamp was an intrud-
