Photos Logo Photos | Slide 1 of 18: Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt's farewell party was spoiled by a pair of Americans. The Jamaican great finished third in his final 100-meter race, with Justin Gatlin and Christian Coleman taking gold and silver Saturday at the world championships.

Usain Bolt has been the most successful track and field athlete in the last three Olympics, winning the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay gold medals at the 2008 Beijing, 2012 London and the 2016 Rio Games. His unprecedented medal haul made him the first athlete to complete the "triple-triple." However, Bolt can no longer claim his relay gold from the Beijing games after his teammate Nesta Carter, who ran the first leg in the final, has been tested positive for a banned substance, meaning the team will be stripped of the gold. Here are some must-know facts about the fastest man in the world.
