Usain Bolt maintains his record; Registers gold medal in 200m & 4x100m

Usain Bolt maintains his record; Registers gold medal in 200m & 4x100m- Usain Bolt smashed the 200-m & 4x100m final at the Olympic Stadium in Rio on Thursday night. He has officially cracked all records and has created history at the 200 meter men’s event at the Rio Olympics 2016.

Bolt talked all week about how badly he wanted to break his own world record time, 19:19, in the 200, which he set at the world championships in Berlin in 2009.

“I was disappointed,” says Bolt. “My legs didn’t respond. It’s just one of those things. I’m getting older. I don’t recover like I usually do.” This was Bolt’s comment as he couldn’t beat his previous time record. He finished off 19:78 at the 200m event at the Olympics.

Andre De Grasse of Canada took silver with a time of 20.02 and Christophe LeMaitre of France won bronze in 20.12.

If Bolt wins the 4×100 meter relay Friday night, he would tie American Carl Lewis and Paavo Nurmi for the most Olympic gold medals in track and field history. Team USA’s LaShawn Merritt finished sixth in the run, with a time of 20.19.

“I’m always happy for the win, but I wanted a faster time,” Bolt, who turns 30 on Sunday, told the reporters at a press meet later. “It was good, but when I came into the straight, my body wouldn’t respond to me. So I guess it’s just age and all the rounds that’s taken toll.”

“You can tell that he’s getting old,” said one of Bolt’s competitor. “It’s a fact that the older you get, the rougher it becomes to double.” Sources say that this might be Bolt’s run.
