The men's 100 metres competition at the 2012 Simmer Olympics in Lunnon, Unitit Kinrick wis held at the Olympic Stadium on 4–5 August 2012.[1] The competition comprised fower roonds: a preliminary roond for entrants withoot the minimum qualifyin staundart, a heats roond, followed bi three semi-finals o aicht athletes each, which then reduced tae aicht athletes for the final.[2]

Leading up tae this Olympics, defendin champion Usain Bolt wis the star o the sport first based on the warld records he haed set in baith the 100 metres an 200 metres in the previous Olympics in Beijing,[3] while showboatin tae the finish.[4] That celebrity continued when he ran mair seriously in the 2009 warld championships, improvin baith records intae Beamonesque territory.[5] But at the subsequent warld championships, Bolt false stairtit oot o the 100 metres, openin the wey for his trainin partner Yohan Blake tae win the championship. Later in the season, Blake also postit a 200 metres time that wis only .07 behind Bolt's warld record.[6] An then at the 2012 Jamaican Olympic Trials, Blake beat Bolt in baith events.[7]

Competition[eedit | eedit soorce]

The three American an three Jamaican favorites alang wi home team Dwain Chambers wan each o the seven roond ane heats, maist o them runnin as easy a roond as possible. Ryan Bailey led the wey wi a personal best 9.88 ahead o a couple o naitional records.

In the first semi-final, Justin Gatlin ran the fastest semi-final in history 9.82, leadin umwhile warld record holder Asafa Powell doun the track. As Powell eased up, Churandy Martina edged him for the seicont automatic qualifier at 9.91, an Powell qualified wi a 9.94 time. Suwaibou Sanneh improved his naitional record for Gambie at 10.18, set the day afore. In the seicont semi-final, defendin champion an warld record haulder Usain Bolt ran a relaxed race, leukin aroond an slowin doun, finishin in 9.87. Ryan Bailey got the seicont spot in 9.96. In the third semi-final, Yohan Blake ran 9.85, wi Tyson Gay in seicont at 9.90. The final qualifier wis defendin siller medalist Richard Thompson wi 10.02.[8][9]

In the much-anticipatit final, Bolt accelerated wi 50 meters tae gang, passin aw competitors tae win the gowd medal. Blake edged past Gatlin, who in turn held aff a closin Gay at the finish line.[10][11]

Usain Bolt wan the gowd medal for a seicont successive time, acomin only the seicont man in history, efter Carl Lewis (1984, 1988), tae repeat. His winnin time o 9.63 seiconts broke his awn Olympic record set in 2008 an wis seicont on the fastest times behind his own warld record. His Jamaican teammate, Yohan Blake, finished seicont in 9.75 seiconts. Blake's time wis the fastest ever nae tae win a gowd medal. Umwhile warld record haulder an 2004 Olympic champion Justin Gatlin finished wi the bronze medal wi a time o 9.79 seiconts. This race set a nummer o records, includin: the first time in history that the tap 3 finished unner 9.80 seiconts; the first time in history that the tap 5 finished in unner 9.90 seiconts; the first time in history that the fower fastest men in 100m history aw featurt; an 7 o the 8 men ran in unner 10 seiconts, again a first in the 100 meters, wi only Asafa Powell (11.99) failin this, due tae an injury he sustained 60 meters intae the race. Apart frae Powell, every non-winnin place except Blake's wis the fastest-ever for that place. Despite nae gettin gowd, Blake, Gatlin, Gay, an Bailey aw ran times that would hae wan at least siller in ony previous Olympic final. Blake, Gatlin an Gay each ran times that would hae wan gowd in ony Olympic final afore 2008 (afore Bolt).[12][13]

Incident[eedit | eedit soorce]

Just afore the stairt o the final, a spectator threw a plastic beer bottle at the competitors in the stairtin blocks. Though the race wis unaffectit, he wis arrestit.[17] The man, later identified as Ashley Gill-Webb, happened tae be sittin next tae Dutch judoka an bronze medalist Edith Bosch, who promptly struck him wi her haund on the back o his heid efter the toss.[18] LOCOG Chairman Sebastian Coe later stated: "I'm not suggesting vigilantism but it was actually poetic justice that they happened to be sitting next to a judo player".[18] Gill-Webb later pleaded nae guilty tae a charge o uisin threatenin wirds or behaviour wi intent tae cause harassment, alarm or distress at Stratford Magistrates' Court.[19] He was later found guilty.
