On Thursday afternoon in Rome, American speedster Justin Gatlin shook Usain Bolt off his back, beating the Olympic gold medalist in the 100 meter dash for the first time in history.

Gatlin recorded a 9.94 to Bolt’s 9.95.

Here are two videos of the race, with Gatlin barely edging out the world’s fastest human.

And just for the record, Bolt is not impressed.
