Of the millions of people who watched the 23-year-old Annapolis, Md., native surge for a silver medal Sunday in the men's 1,500 meters at the world championships, his father wasn't one of them.

Usain Bolt restored order to the world of sprinting. Reclaiming the 100-meter world championship gold he lost through a false start in South Korea two years ago, the Olympic champion again holds every major sprint title there is.
Stung by ongoing protests, Vladimir Putin and his supporters have responded with mass rallies across Russia ahead of Sunday's presidential election - a tactic that seems to have paid off.
