• Christian Coleman Wins Men's 100m World Championships Gold in Doha

Article source: Athletics


American sprinter Christian Coleman won the gold medal in the men's 100m final at IAAF World Championships in Doha on Saturday.

The 23-year-old Coleman dominated the men's 100m final in Doha by clocking the 6th fastest time in history of 9.76 seconds to win his first global outdoor title. 

37-year-old Justin Gatlin, who won the 100m World title two years ago in London, took silver in a season's best 9.89 seconds while Canadian Andre de Grasse claimed bronze in a personal best time of 9.90 seconds.

Two years ago at London World Championships Justin Gatlin won the title while Coleman was second and Usain Bolt in third.

"World champion, it sounds incredible, too good to be true. For me to make it here and come out with a gold is incredible. I was just out of college two years ago and not many people expected me to win a silver. I expected to come out here and be great and upgrade my silver medal." Newly crowned world 100m champion Coleman said.

"This season was a testament to my endurance and will. I had setbacks this season. I just wanted to stay focused on this race and give it all I got for this season.

"Christian has ran a spectacular season, great times. I couldn't say it was a shock that he would do a great job here. I had to hold on and stay strong in my technique." Justin Gatlin told BBC Sports.
