The World's Fastest Man
Justin Gatlin (born February 10, 1982) is an American sprinter who is an Olympic gold medalist in the 100 meters. His 100 m personal best is 9.79 seconds, and he is a two-time World indoor champion in the 60-meter dash. In June 2012 at the US Olympic trials, Gatlin ran a time of 9.80, which was the fastest-ever time for a man over the age of 30. At the London 2012 Olympics, Gatlin ran a time of 9.79 in the 100-meter final, earning him a bronze medal. His performance at the 2012 Olympic 100 meter final contributed to the fastest 100-meter race ever, which saw three men run under the 9.80-second barrier. In 2017 at the London World Championships, Gatlin became the 100m World Champion and the fastest man in the world once again after dethroning the great Usain Bolt. Gatlin was the only sprinter to ever defeat Bolt in a championship meet and the oldest male sprinter to ever get on the Olympic and world championship podium.
