KINGSTON, Jamaica -- It was his last official race in Jamaica: Before Usain Bolt finishes his career as the fastest man alive in 2017 in London, he said farewell where everything began: In Kingston, Jamaica.

Bolt had his last official race in Jamaica at the JN Racers Grand Prix at the National Stadium of Kingston. The atmosphere was unique: 30,000 cheering people were present and enjoyed the special 100-meter sprint, which he finished with a time of 10.03 seconds. Afterwards he gave thanks to every of his supporters and said that he has “never been that nervous” before a 100-meter sprint.

The 30-year-old Jamaican sprinter won the gold medal in the Olympic Games eight times and is one of the most successful sportsmen worldwide. In 2009 he had his best time of 9.58 seconds in running the 100m.
