NEWS: Usain Bolt Makes Olympics History With 3rd Straight Gold Medal in Men's 100m


Usain Bolt sprinted his way into history on Sunday when he won the gold medal in the men's 100m dash to become the first athlete to win three straight Olympic titles in the event.

The 29-year-old Jamaican, who entered the race as the odds-on favorite to win, was met with a chorus of cheers from the audience as he took his place on the track, and he did not disappoint his fans.
Bolt came off the starting blocks slightly slower than America's Justin Gatlin -- considered to be the only competitor who could have beaten him -- but quickly overcame everyone in the second half of the race to finish at 9.81 seconds.
