what a 100m final !

maurice greene runs a 9.87, the same time that won the gold medal in sydney in 2000, and all he can get is the bronze medal !

here are the final winning times :

gold medal ..... justin gatlin ..... u.s.a. ..... 9.85
silver medal ..... francis obikwelu ..... portugal ..... 9.86
bronze medal ..... maurice greene ..... u.s.a. ..... 9.87

and shawn crawford, also of team u.s.a. finishes in 4th, with an also amazing time of 9.89, the same time he won his quarterfinal heat with !

a total of five sprinters finished with their times under 10 seconds, and kim collins, of st. kitts and nevis finishes right at 10.0 flat !

all i can say, now is can't wait for the 4x100 relays, including the prelims & the final !

Great race.

The 100 M race is THE premier Olympic event, if not the 200 M race.

Lushinda Davis just put on one of the worst Olympic performance of recent memory in the ladies 400 M hurdles.
