Lightning still strikes in the rain: Usain Bolt maintained his title of the World's Fastest Man, winning the 100m at the World Championship in Moscow. Bolt won in 9.77 seconds. Justin Gatlin finished second.

"Then I saw these long legs coming up on my right side," Gatlin said. "He's great. He's just great."

These two aren't 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, you're the guy who pushes me to go even faster.' I'm honored in that," Gatlin said. "But I thought I had it for a second."
