World's fastest man Bolt loses relay race, first time he's beaten since 2007
World’s fastest man Usain Bolt lost his opening race of the season on Saturday (Feb 28), anchoring the Racers Lions team to second place in the men’s 4x100 at the Gibson McCook Relays.
The Jamaican world record holder could not make up a 10-metre deficit on a University of Technology team, which won in 38.23 seconds.
It was the first time since 2007 that Bolt has been beaten in a 4x100m relay.
His last loss in the event was at the Zurich Weltklasse meeting almost eight years ago.
