Rio Olympics: Usain Bolt Wins 3rd Straight 100m Final

-

- Advertisment -

Usain Bolt has defended his 100m Olympic title, after he finished in a time of 9.81 seconds to win gold on Monday.

Bolt stormed to the finish line ahead of Justin Gatlin, who claimed silver in 9.89secs and Canadian Andre de Grasse who took bronze in 9.91secs.
The Jamaican sprinter adds Rio 2016 to London 2012 and Beijing 2008 to his Olympic 100m gold medal collection. He will also be looking to emulate the last two Games by adding 200m and 4x100m relay gold on Sunday night.
Competing in his final Olympics ahead of his planned retirement after next year’s World Championships in London, Bolt told the BBC: “I’m really happy but I expected to go faster. I’m just happy that I won and that’s the key thing.”
