2005 world champion Justin Gatlin upset all-time great Usain Bolt to win the men's 100 meters title at the World Athletics Championships in London on Saturday.
Gatlin, who won the silver medal in the last three world championships, clocked 9.92 seconds for the surprising victory.
His fellow American Christian Coleman won silver in 9.94 and Bolt, who is running his last 100 meters before retirement, was third in 9.95 seconds.
China's Su Bingtian, who became the first Asian to reach the men's 100m final at the world championships two years ago, finished eighth in 10.27.
