The semis were simply a warm up for Usain Bolt as he made it through easily to the men’s finals in the 100 meters, at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Yohan Blake, second in his semi final with Justin Gaitlin, also made it through. Nickel Ashmeade did not make the cut and will have to sit out the finals this time around.

Kirani James, the youth from Grenada, who captured our minds and hearts, did not get his Olympic gold. He was denied by Wayde Van Niekerk of South Africa, who broke the world record with 43.03s.
