Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt isn’t celebrating his 100-metre dash gold medal for long.

Two days after becoming the first person ever to win 100-metres gold at three-consecutive Olympics, Bolt took the track again for the men’s 200-metre heats.

He’s trying to — again — make history by winning 100, 200 and 4×100-metre gold at three straight Olympics.

He won his heat Tuesday (16 August) in 20.28 seconds.

“I’m ready,” Bolt said after the race. “I’m excited. I’m nervous at the same time but I’m ready. I’m really looking forward to this one. It means a lot more to me so I’m pumped up for this one.”

Canada’s Andre De Grasse ran the fastest time in the heats, clocking a 20.09.

Jamaica’s Yohan Blake and Nickel Ashmeade as well as Trinidad and Tobago’s Rondel Sorillo are the other regional athletes through to Wednesday’s (17 August) semifinal.
