• Usain Bolt becomes 8-time Olympic champion as he wins 200m in Rio

Article source: Athletics


The fastest man on Earth, Usain Bolt, cemented his status as one of the greatest athletes of all time after he won the 200m Olympic gold in Rio and became the 8-time Olympic champion.

The 29-year-old Jamaican clocked 19.78 seconds way ahead of Canadian Andre de Grasse and Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre. 

"What else can I do to prove I am the greatest? I'm trying to be one of the greatest, to be among Ali and Pele," Bolt told reporters after the finish.

In Beijing in 2008 and in London in 2012 he won 100m, 200m, and 4x100m. Bolt will try to repeat the same on Saturday night in Rio when he lines up in the 4x100m relay final.
