Usain Bolt

Jamaican sprinter widely known as the fastest man ever Usain Bolt backed up his billing as a “living legend” by winning the 2012 London Olympic 200 meters and becoming the first athlete to repeat as double Olympic sprint champion.
“It’s what I came here to do. I’m now a legend,” Bolt said. “I’m also the greatest athlete to live. I’ve got nothing left to prove.”

Undaunted by the first world record of the Olympic track meet run by 800-meter winner David Rudisha less than an hour before the 200 final, Bolt was not about to be upstaged by anyone.

He dominated his favorite event almost from the starting gun and had enough of a lead to slow down at the line, bring his left index finger to his mouth and signal a “ssssshhh” that was broadcast around the globe.
