Bolt, Gatlin get their 100m medals at ceremony

Usain Bolt (MGN)

Usain Bolt received his latest gold and Justin Gatlin picked up his latest silver - this time, without any fuss.




A night after Bolt won his third Olympic title at 100 meters, beating Gatlin, the medalists returned to the Rio Games track for the ceremony.

Gatlin smiled widely as his name was announced Monday, then blew a kiss to polite applause. No sign of the full-throated booing that accompanied his introduction before Sunday's sprint.

Gatlin has become a polarizing figure in the sport after serving two doping bans.

A year ago at the world championships in Beijing, Gatlin also finished second to Bolt in the 100.

When the American stood on the podium there, he pointed a finger and shouted at someone in the stands who was bothering his mother.
