Injury to Usain Bolt at track championships ends Jamaican’s brilliant careerThe Jamaican great crumpled to the track with a left-leg injury as he was chasing a final gold medal for the Jamaican 4x100-meter relay team at the world championships.Having to make up lots of ground on the anchor leg, Bolt suddenly screamed and stumbled as he came down with his golden farewell shattered by the first injury he has experienced at a major competition.[...] Tori Bowie was the unlikely first double gold medalist at the championships, anchoring the U.S. team to the 4x100-meter women’s relay title ahead of Britain and Jamaica.[...] Allyson Felix, running the second leg on the winning team, earned a record 15th medal at the world championships in a career dating to 2005.If Bolt and Farah were about farewells, the decathlon was about renewal in the wake of the retirement of two-time Olympic and world champion Ashton Eaton.There was at least one veteran who did produce as Australia’s Sally Pearson got another gold medal at the Olympic Stadium in London after missing much of the past two seasons because of injury.

The Museum of the African Diaspora’s Afropolitan Ball on Saturday, Oct. 28, raised more than a million bucks, which more than met the monetary goal of this all-out swanky party. But there sure was a larger purpose: “Together,” said the inside of the program for the “Shades of Black” party, “we will keep black art and culture in our city.” If it seems there are fewer and fewer blacks in San Francisco, this was an occasion for the city’s most prominent members of that community — including Willie Brown, honorary co-chairman of the event with Lloyd Dean of Dignity Health — to put on their best duds, party with old pals and confirm their place in the city’s cultural mosaic.
