MOSCOW — Usain Bolt’s pre-race antics were rather subdued. Very little emotion, not much enthusiasm — at least not by his usually fun-loving standards.
His race was pretty ho-hum, too, just a quick burst out of the starting blocks before backing off and coasting across the finish line.
Sure, the Jamaican easily won his opening heat of the 100 meters Saturday at the world championships. But the only thing dashing about Bolt on this humid night was his tiger-striped uniform.
