Can the other three help Bolt finish off on a high? 00:05 IST: But today it’s more than just these two legends. India’s own Davinder Singh Kang will look to bring home a medal when he participates in the Javelin throw final. This will be the first of the three major events. Reuters Photo00:03 IST: it’s not just about Bolt today. Another legend bids adieu to athletics — Mo Farah. Reuters Photo 00:01 IST: Just over two hours to go before we see this man for the one last time sprinting on the tracks. Reuters PhotoIt will be the end of an era for athletics on Saturday when Usain Bolt races for the last time in the men’s 4×100 metres relay at the World Athletics Championships.The Jamaican is hoping to step away from the track having won his 20th global championship title, something he was denied last week when he finished third in the 100m behind American Justin Gatlin.Bolt, running the penultimate race of his career, led Jamaica safely through their semi-final in the 4×100 metres relay while United States ran the fastest time of the year.Running the last leg, Bolt eased home, looking over his shoulder, as Jamaica won the second of the two semi-final heats in 37.95 seconds, ahead of France (38.03) and China (38.20).advertisementJamaica are aiming for a fifth successive world title in the event but will face a stiff challenge from the U.S. who won the first heat in 37.70 seconds, with Christian Coleman, silver medallist in the 100 metres, running the anchor leg.Fans flocking to the London Stadium on Saturday will probably be treated to a double dose of the 30-year-old sprint legend as Bolt plans to take part in the relay heats in the day’s first session.MO FARAH AIMS TO GO OUT ON A HIGHThere will be a fair amount of emotion from the stands as Mo Farah also runs in his last track race – the 5,000 metres final.The Briton is aiming to complete an unprecedented World Championship triple-double, having retained his 10,000m title on the first day – the home nation’s only medal.INDIA’S MEDAL HOPES HINGE ON DAVINDERMeanwhile, India’s hopes for a medal in the championships will hinge on Davinder Singh Kang’s shoulders.He became the first Indian to qualify for the final round of the javelin throw World Championships while his more fancied compatriot Neeraj Chopra crashed out in the qualification round.Competing in the qualification round Group B, Kang, who was carrying a shoulder injury, cleared the automatic qualification mark of 83m in his third and final throw as he sent the iron spear to a distance of 84.22m. He had a 82.22m in his opening throw and then came up with 82.14m in his second.The 26-year-old athlete from Punjab was under pressure to touch the 83m in his final attempt and he was the last man to take the throw. He did it in style by sending the spear beyond the qualification mark to the huge relief of the Indian camp.last_img
