Usian Bolt has become the first man to complete the treble – treble. The sprinting superstar has won the 100, 200 and 4 x 100m relay at the last three Olympic Games.
There can be no doubt that Usain Bolt is the greatest track and field athlete this world has ever seen.
His nine gold medals take him to the top of the list of Olympic track and field athletes, and he signs off an Olympic career unlike any before.
After his final race, Bolt, who has said this will be his last Olympics, said that he had “mixed feelings”.
“I feel relief because of all the stress I’ve been through over the years, but I’m going to miss the competition. This is what I live for.”
