Master splinter Usain Bolt made history yet again after winning a third consecutive Olympic
200m gold on Thursday to keep alive his hopes of an unprecedented “triple triple” in Rio.
The victory in his favored event was Bolt’s 13th individual world or Olympic sprint title from a
possible 14 since he took athletics by storm at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The 29-year Jamaican timed 19.78 seconds for gold. Canadian Andre de Grasse took silver
with 20.02sec and France’s Christophe Lemaitre winning bronze 20.12.
However, Bolt is not satisfied with his time of finishing, hopes to improve in his last race in this Rio Olympic.
