Bolt finished The Associated Press reported (via Sporting News). Here's a video of the run:
While still in Warsaw, Bolt thanked fans for the support he received:
Throughout his career, Bolt has shined on some of the biggest stages, having captured 16 medals for his country between the Olympics and World Championships. He's taken three gold medals in each of the last two summer Olympics, including the 100 meters in both.
He followed up his latest world record by announcing his plans to hang it up for the remainder of the 2014 season, according to AP(via Yahoo Sports). Bolt's coach, Glen Mills, said he ''feels it is now time to shut it down while he is healthy and injury free with a view on his preparations for the 2015 season.''
美聯社報導，在破了世界紀錄之後Bolt宣布他將在2014年的其他比賽暫時休息，而Bolt的教練Glen Mills也表示: 「我認為在他健康且不受傷病困擾的現在，是該讓他好好休息，為2015的賽季做準備。」
A foot ailment suffered earlier this year sidelined the 28-year-old sprinter temporarily, limiting him to just three races in 2014. Though the injuries caused a slight setback, Bolt's latest world record is proof that he hasn't yet slowed down.
Michael Johnson, a fellow Olympic champion, shared his thoughts on Bolt's future back in March, per Harry West of Sportal:
Technically, he's not the best. Technically he's a little bit all over the place and that's a race where the longer it goes, the more you need to be really efficient in order to be able to maintain the level of speed that you want.
