For one final time, we will watch Usain Bolt take to an Olympic track when the six-time gold medalist runs in Rio. Bolt is a two-time defending champion in the 100-meter, 200-meter and a member of the 4X100 meter relay. ‘The Fastest Man Alive’ also holds the world record in each of those three disciplines.
Since the beginning of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Bolt has finished first in all but two international events he has competed in – he was disqualified for a false start during the 100-meter dash at the 2011 world championships and the Jamaican team finished second in the 4X100 relay at the 2015 world relay championships.
The accolades continue to grow for Bolt in Rio with a third straight gold medal in the 100m dash. Bolt blew by the competition, completing the race in 9.81 seconds.
