Usain Bolt blew past the field in his final race in Jamaica when he clocked a 10.03-second 100-meter dash at the Salute to a Legend Race on Saturday night. 

According to ESPN.com, Bolt said he expects his final international runs to come at August's world championships in London. 

The most accomplished sprinter in history, Bolt astounded at last summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, when he secured a triple-triple by winning gold in the 100 meters, 200 meters and 4x100-meter relay for the third straight Olympics. 

Bolt was later stripped of his 2008 4x100-meter gold medal in January after teammate Nesta Carter failed a drug test, but the incident hardly sullied his legacy. 

Now 30, Bolt will attempt to run into the sunset with a couple of blazing sprints this summer.
