MOSCOW -- His legs were hurting, the rain was pouring and he was trailing late in the race. Brian Winters Jersey . Doesnt matter. This is Usain Bolt. And nothing gets in the way of him and first place, especially when hes driven as he was Sunday in the 100-meter final at the world championships. Bolt blew by Justin Gatlin with about 30 metres to go and never glanced back. He also didnt even crack a smile when he crossed the finish line because this took a lot more work than the worlds fastest sprinter usually needs. Gatlin was second and Bolts Jamaican teammate, Nesta Carter, took third. Of all Bolts titles, this one will have a special meaning, considering he false-started two years ago in the final to lose his crown. Now, its his again. "Its always great to get back your title," said Bolt, who won in 9.77 seconds. "Im happy with myself I got it done." Many of Bolts top rivals were missing from the field. Gone were Tyson Gay (doping offence) and Jamaican teammate Yohan Blake, who was the reigning champion but skipped the worlds because of an injured hamstring. Shortly after the race, Bolt sauntered around the track with his countrys flag tied around his neck like a cape. These days, he has to be the Superman of his sport. Given all the recent doping scandals, track needs someone to save the day. For now, he will settle for blowing away the dark cloud over his proud sprinting nation, which saw some of its most decorated sprinters fall from grace. Asafa Powell, Sherone Simpson and Veronica Campbell-Brown all tested positive for a banned substance and werent at the worlds. "Im just doing my part by running fast, winning titles and letting the world know you can do it clean," Bolt said. "My focus is to continue doing what I do." And that means running fast times, even on a drenched track. What started as a steady drizzle turned into a downpour just before the gun sounded. So much so that Bolt clowned around when he was introduced to the crowd, pretending to open an umbrella. Really, though, rain doesnt bother him. Not in the least. Neither does anything else, like falling behind early. He knew he might trail Gatlin at the halfway mark, because Bolt has never been a good starter and may have been extra cautious considering what happened in South Korea two years ago. In the lane next to him, Gatlin got off to a great start and thought he might have enough in the tank to beat Bolt, just as he did two months ago in Rome. "Then I saw these long legs coming up on my right side," Gatlin said. "Hes great. Hes just great." These two arent exactly the best of friends, but after the race, Gatlin congratulated Bolt, who had some kind words in return. "For him to say to me, Hey, youre the guy who pushes me to go even faster. Im honoured in that," Gatlin said. "But I thought I had it for a second." Keyshawn Johnson Jersey . -- C.J. Wilson parked his car and laughed while signing autographs for faceless fans who handed bats, balls and cards to the pitcher from the other side of a brick wall. Julian Howsare Jersey . -- J.R.

But after a timeout, the Nuggets worked the ball to Foye who heaved a 3-pointer for the winner.

Barnes and Darren Collison finished consecutive fastbreaks with layups to give the Clippers a 55-46 lead with 2:46 left in the second quarter. Chandler answered with a 3-pointer that was offset by a three-point play by Griffin, who then drew a foul, his third, while guarding Foye. Griffin spent the final couple minutes of the second quarter on the bench, during which the Nuggets closed with an 11-2 burst, including a jumper by Lawson with 29.7 seconds remaining that evened the score at the half.
