Usain Bolt won the 100m gold at the World Athletics Championships on Sunday by just a hundredth of a second. That's less than the amount of time it takes a hummingbird to flap its wings one time.
Bolt beat out favorite Justin Gatlin with a time of 9.79 seconds. That's well off his world record of 9.58 seconds set in 2009, and his previous world record of 9.69 from the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Bolt has struggled since the highs of the last Olympics, suffering from a hamstring injury and getting beaten out by rival Gatlin. (Video via ESPN)
