What can you say about Jamaican sprint superstar Usain Bolt that hasn’t already been said.
Bolt Thursday (18 August) won the men’s 200-metre dash in a time of 19.78 seconds to secure win sprint double gold after winning the men’s 100 earlier in the week. It marks the third-straight Olympic games Bolt has swept the sprints. And this marks the first time in history that a male and female athlete from the same country became sprint double title holders as Jamaican Elaine Thompson won the 100 and 200 on the women’s side.
Bolt was back in action Friday (19 August) for the men’s 4×100 metre final. Jamaica won the gold, meaning Bolt has officially secured the 100, 200 and 4×100-metre gold for the third-straight Olympics.
