Jamaica Observer, Aug. 24, 2015

Jamaican running legend Usain Bolt defended his 100-meter title Sunday at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, finishing in 9.79 seconds.

Bolt crossed the line just 0.01 seconds ahead of American competitor Justin Gatlin, prompting Jamaican daily Jamaica Observer to characterize the winner of the 2008 and 2012 Olympic golds in the 100 as the "greatest sprinter ever" on the front page of its Monday edition.

Still, the very narrow victory had others wondering whether Bolt has lost some of his thunder.
