Justin Gatlin of the US， considered Bolt's main rival for the gold medal， recorded the fastest time of the heats with 10.01 seconds.

The greatest evolutionary change in professional sports over the past decade has been the introduction of analytics.
In a nutshell Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Sliver , this concept refers to the use of anti-traditional, hyper-specific statistical analyses to build teams and compensate players in a statistically rational manner.
Once upon a time, the field of sports analytics was considered a fringe endeavor. In 1977, a man named Bill James was viewed as a kook who self-published a quirky journal and sold it to a small Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Black , loyal, equally kooky group of subscribers.
Today, James works for the Boston Red Sox, a team that has won three World Series titles since 2003. Before the Red Sox hired James Cheap Nike Air Max 97 White , the team had gone 86 years without winning MLB's ultimate prize.
Not surprisingly, James' protégées currently permeate baseball's front offices. Most famously, former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein has recently been charged with the Herculean task of helping the hapless Chicago Cubs (0 for 106 years and counting) win the World Series.
Even more impressive is the impact James' research has had on other sports. Professional football and basketball, specifically Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Silver Bullet , have begun to follow baseball's lead, albeit reluctantly.
Innovative omelets aren't made without breaking more than a few philosophically entrenched eggs. Old school baseball scouts have - both figuratively and literally - spit tobacco onto the concept of Moneyball.
And NBA analyst Charles Barkley, whose bombastic delivery belies his thoughtful rhetorical mind-set, had this to say Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Ultra , ""I've always believed analytics was crap.""
While Barkley usually contributes a voice of reason to ridiculous public debates, he's probably wrong in this case.
Last week, the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference gave the San Antonio Spurs an award for essentially using analytics to win two of the past three NBA championships. (For whatever it's worth, effective free throw shooting would have made that number three-for-three.)
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich Cheap Nike Air Max 97 Undefeated , a former US military member and current coaching legend, had this to say about the award, ""I had no idea there was such a conference or such an award … the world is amazing.""
Amazing? Yes. Data-driven? Yes. Here to stay? YES.
