Usain Bolt came into the men’s 100m as one of the favourites, as he set out to show the world why he is the greatest sprinter that has ever lived.
But American rival Justin Gatlin was determined to upstage the Jamaican in Rio.
Lining up in lane six, the lanky Jamaican was ready to rewrite the history books.
Usain Bolt has showed the world that he is the best sprinter ever seen, when he took out the Gold medal in the men’s 100m.
Bolt has defended his 100m Olympic title yet again, after winning Gold at the 2008 Beijing Games and 2012 London Games, the only athlete to have ever done so.
Bolt now has the 200m and 4X100 to focus on, if he wins both events, he will be the only athlete in history to win a triple triple at three consecutive Olympic games, a milestone many thought would be impossible. But the question still remains, can it be done?
