Who is the fastest man in the world?

Tough question.

But a semblance of an answer happened late Saturday afternoon.

And two University of Tennessee track stars, one former and one current, can lay claim to the title.

The world championships held in London.

Of course, Jamaica's Usain Bolt was in the competition.

Former University of Tennessee track star Justin Gatlin and current star Christian Coleman were in the 100M final.

It ended in a classic photo finish!

Gatlin wins it with a time of 9.92 seconds. Coleman was right behind him at 9.94.Bolt finished at 9.95.

And this is reportedly Bolt's last 100 meter race.
