Gatlin Whips Bolt in Rome 100m

Six-time Olympic champion Usain Bolt was defeated by American Justin Gatlin in the 100m at the Rome Diamond League today. Bolt, who opened his season with a pedestrian 10.06 seconds at the Cayman Invitational, got a good start but did not have his trademark finish as Gatlin pulled away in the final moments of the race to win in 9.94 seconds. Bolt finished second in a season’s best 9.95 seconds.
