MOSCOW (AP) — Usain Bolt reclaimed his 100-meter world championship title Sunday.
The Jamaican great was pushed throughout the race during a steady rain, but he won back the title he lost two years ago in South Korea when a false start disqualified him from the final. Bolt won the race at Luzhniki Stadium in 9.77 seconds. He set the 100 world record of 9.58 seconds at the 2009 worlds in Berlin.
Justin Gatlin of the United States took the silver medal after taking an early lead. Nesta Carter of Jamaica won the bronze.
