Bolt, Blake & Gatlin Win 100m Semi-Finals – London 2012 Olympics



Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Justin Gatlin all deliver times under 9.90 as they win their semi-finals of the men’s 100m event at the London 2012 Olympic Games (5 August).

Since 1896, athletics has been on the programme of each edition of the Games of the Olympiad. Its presence on the Games programme has allowed its popularity to increase across the world. This popularity was also strengthened by the creation of the IAAF in 1912. Women’s events appeared for the first time at the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, while the men’s programme was standardised as of the 1932 Games in Los Angeles. Although at the beginning women were authorised to participate in only some events, today their programme is almost identical to that of the men.

  2. Who’s still here in 2019???. Honestly I don’t watch much track and field since Bolt retired. The sport isn’t that interesting anymore. The quality of the races isn’t there, the show man-ship is gone. It’s just boring and slow now. Bolt use to make these guys run their hearts out and w be PR in semi finals lol 😂. Long life UB.

  3. People that keep saying they shouldn't dip before the finish line, they should. A sprinter can only keep its top speed at up for a short time (couple seconds or less) they do the biggest chunk of their acceleration when coming out of the blocks, then pick up speed, hit their top and then bc of the high speed after that little time at top speed muscle fatigue sets in and slows them down. If they slow down A LOT before the finish there is imroper pacing but if not then they didn't push enough. Otherwise after their peak point they wouldve slowed down. They wouldve used all their energy to get to their peak instead of just having leftover energy at the end of their race. Thats how elite sprinting works
