Usain Bolt Caps Individual Olympic Track Career With 200M Gold Medal

1,339

Another day, another gold medal for the fastest man alive.

Usain Bolt blew past the competition in the 200-meter final Thursday night en route to his second gold medal of the 2016 Rio Games and his eight Olympic gold overall.

The Jamaican sprinter finished with a time of 19.78 seconds, which, as you can tell in the photo below, was far better than any of his opponents.

Canada’s Andre De Grasse, who shared a smile with Bolt in the semifinals, came in second, followed by France’s Christophe Lemaire.

Bolt now has won the 100 and 200-meter races at the past three Summer Olympics — Beijing (2008), London (2012) and Rio. Thursday’s race also was Bolt’s final individual Olympics event, but he will run for one last gold Friday in the 4×100 relay.
