Electric Usain Bolt Grins to Olympic Gold Again in Rio

Lightning struck again when Usain Bolt rightly cemented his place amongst the greatest Athletes of all time on Sunday evening, as he won his third successive Olympic gold medal in the 100 metres. The charismatic Bolt will try to achieve the same feat in the 200 metres and the 4x 100 metres later this week in Rio to reach true athletic immortality.

“Somebody said if I win these three gold medals I would be immortal and I kind of liked it. So I’m going to run with that one,” said Bolt after the final.

“I’m happy and I’m proud of myself. It wasn’t perfect execution, but I’m proud of myself.”

“I came to this Olympics to win three gold medals, to prove myself again as one of the greats.”

Despite completing part-one of his triple gold mission last night, it was his casually ran 100 metres semi-final that had people talking.


 


 

The 29-year old Jamaican was captured grinning as he showboated his way across the finish line, whilst his fellow athletes had their teeth grit, muscles tensed and faces strained to try to get even close to Bolt. Getty photographer Cameron Spencer managed to snap Bolt as he nonchalantly glanced back at his closest rival and grinned towards the camera. The photograph has been subsequently shared thousands of times online.

Bolt will begin the defence of his 200 metres and 4x 100 metres respective golds later this week, with the finals on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th. Chances are he will win these golds at a canter also. If he doesn’t however, the electric Bolt, is assured of his place in the athletics hall of fame for his casual, nonchalant attitude alone – displayed at its best in this now viral photograph.
