Usain Bolt’s Triple Triple
At the Rio Summer 2016 Olympics, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt swept the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay, earning three gold medals. The feat was his third such sweep in three Summer Olympic games, putting him in an elite club of two, alongside Carl Lewis, in possession of nine Track and Field golds. Adding excitement to the 2016 races, Bolt wasn't guaranteed the sweep. It all came down to the relay. Bolt ran the anchor leg, and kicked it in on the final straightway to cross the finish in 37.27 seconds for the win. The "triple triple" was the grand finale to Bolt's Olympic career; he has stated that he intends to retire after the 2017 World Championships.
