AP PHOTOS: Scenes from world championships


| Zoom

(AP) - Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt captures three golds in Moscow on Sunday to become the most decorated athlete in the history of the world championships. With an overall eight golds and two silvers, Bolt overtakes Carl Lewis (8 golds, 1 silver, 1 bronze) and Michael Johnson (8 golds).

The United States wins an impressive 25 total medals in the games. But only six of them were gold as Russia edged them with seven, making it the first time the U.S. failed to at least tie for the gold-medal lead since the first world championships in Helsinki 30 years ago.

Here's a gallery of photos from the competition.
