Record breaker! Usain Bolt makes history in Rio with third successive Olympics 100m gold medal

Jamaica's Usain Bolt completed an historic hat-trick of Olympic 100m titles, securing his place as the greatest sprinter of all time. He is the only person to win the Olympic 100m three times, which he accomplished at three consecutive Games.

The champion of Beijing and London added Rio to his list of conquered cities by striding to victory in 9.81 seconds.

"I'm really happy but I expected to go faster. After the semi-final I felt extremely good. I wanted to run faster but with the turnaround time
- we normally have two hours, but we had one hour 20 minutes - it was challenging."
“This is what we train for. I told you guys I was going to do it. Stay tuned, two more to go." Bolt tells BBC.

His main rival, Justin Gatlin of the United States, the 2004 Olympic
champion who later served a
suspension for doping , took the silver medal in 9.89 seconds.
Andre De Grasse of Canada won the bronze in 9.91.

Congrats to him!
