Usain Bolt Wins Gold In 100-Meter Final At Rio Olympics 2016 (VIDEO)
Usain Bolt won his third consecutive gold medal in the 100-meter final at the 2016 Rio Olympics on Sunday. Watch the Jamaican superstar win the race in the video below!
Bolt, the most decorated sprinter of all time, made history on Sunday by becoming the first Olympic athlete to win three consecutive gold medals in the 100 meters. Having already taken home gold for the event in 2008 and 2012, Bolt defended his title against several other all-star track and fielders, including Team USA’s Justin Gatlin, who posed the greatest threat to Bolt going into the competition. Gatlin won the gold in the 2004 Olympics, but had to sit out of the 2008 Games due to a drug suspension.
With his latest 100-meter win, Bolt upholds his incredible record of having never been defeated on the track in an Olympic or world championship race. He also still holds the fastest ever run for the event. The 6-foot-5 Jamaican, who turns 30 on the final day of the Summer Games, has said that Rio will be his final Olympics.
