The end of an era and I will miss Usain Bolt from the competitive world of athletics. He is the ultimate sportsmen and the Athletics world be a sadder place without him competing - he is a one off and a global star. there is no one who can compare. This thread is for all things Athletic Well done MO too but spare us the children on the track and shake hands with your competitors first. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/athletics/39166753 Usain Bolt and Mo Farah take to the global stage one last time at the London 2017 World Championships from 4-13 August, bidding to crown their track careers with more gold medals. Jamaican Bolt, who has completed the 100m-200m sprint double at the past two World Championships, will compete in the 100m and 4x100m relay as he bids farewell to the sport. Great Britain's Farah, who will switch to road racing next season, seeks to complete an unprecedented fifth double in the 5,000m and 10,000m, having won both titles at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, as well as at the 2013 and 2015 World Championships. Other home British medal hopes include Laura Muir in the 1500m and 5,000m, Katarina Johnson-Thompson in the heptathlon, Andrew Pozzi in the 110m hurdles, Sophie Hitchon in the hammer and walker Tom Bosworth.
