Usain Bolt has reclaimed his spot on top of the sprinting world after winning the 100-meter world championship race Sunday (August 11). As if it was destined to be, a lightning bolt struck after he crossed the finish line and was caught on film in a very cool picture.

Bolt was eliminated from the 100-meter final race at the world championships in South Korea in 2011, after a false start. While he was back for the 2013 race, the conditions weren't ideal. It was pouring rain in Moscow, which led to a slower start than usual. Still, Bolt couldn't be held back as he completed the race in 9.77 seconds, besting American Justin Gatlin's 9.85 seconds, according to the IAAF.
