The Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt claimed his third consecutive Olympic 100m gold medal in front of the crowded Rio’s Olympic Stadium, and he proved once more that he can still be the world’s fastest man. As in many previous races on 100m finals, Bolt arrived with a smile on his face after crossing the finish line in 9.81 seconds, which is his slowest time, but it was sufficient to leave behind Justin Gatlin by .08 seconds, the NBC News reports of Olympic Games in Rio. “It was brilliant,” Bolt said to the Associated Press. “I didn’t go so fast but I’m so happy I won. I told you guys I was going to do it.” Bolt is a sprinter who succeeded to maintain his title and won a gold medal in previous two Games in Beijing 2008 and in London 2012.
