American Christian Coleman won the 100m world title on Saturday when he won the final in Doha with a time of 9.76 seconds, the sixth-best of all time.

Coleman thus surpassed what he did two years ago in London when he crossed the line behind Justin Gatlin.

“Last time it was a surprise when I won the silver, this time there was a lot of pressure but I handled it well to get the gold,” Coleman told reporters. “When I went out to the track all the worries evaporated (…) Adding my name to the legends that have conquered this title is an honor and a blessing.

For his part, Gatlin, 37 years old, once again demonstrated that he is one of the best sprinters in history when he won the silver medal with a time of 9.89 seconds.

“This season shows my endurance and my will,” said Gatlin. “Coleman made a great race, but I have a message for next year: Here I am, let’s prepare.

Canadian Andre De Grasse, triple Olympic medalist in Rio de Janeiro who ran after leaving behind several injuries, completed the podium with a time of 9.90 seconds.
