Usain Edges Closer to Sprinting ‘Immortality’

The track legend Usain Bolt will be retiring as the only man to win three consecutive gold medals in the Olympics hundred-meters after dominating last night’s race in a time of 9.81 seconds.

The USA’s Justin Gatlin came in second with a time of 9.89 seconds while Canadian Andre de Grasse was third in a time of 9.91 seconds.

Yohan Blake placed fourth in a time of 9.93 seconds.

After the race, Bolt – who secured Legendary status after winning in London – said he’s now focused on clinching sporting ‘immortality’.

Meanwhile, South African quarter miler, Wayne Van Niekerk ran a world record of 43-point-03 seconds to win the men’s 400 metre finals.
