It was a routine night for Usain Bolt at the Olympics as he stepped on to the arena with just one mission in his mind, to capture yet another(and probably his last) individual Olympic gold. And when Bolt sets his sights on something, he gets to it quicker than anyone on planet earth(both literally and figuratively).
The 200 metre final was supposed to be formality with respect to who would take home the gold. The question always was if bolt could beat his World record time of 19.19 seconds. Bolt had expressed his desire to go sub 19 but that didn’t happen tonight. Bolt finsihed with gold but could manage to do it in 19.78 seconds, something that wouldn’t really impress Bolt.
But it was a wonderful race as Bolt comfortably went passed the finsih line while the mere mortals were striving hard for the silver and bronze.
Here is how the world reacted to Bolt’s historical victory
And there it is!

When I return for my second life. I'm naming myself Usain Bolt. Whose name is better than that?

I find Bolt's Olympic achievements far more impressive than Phelps'.

We watch these games for so many things…pride, improbable surprises…images of transcendent excellence.
Bolt is that last. A memory.

Bolt:You work so hard throughout the years when this moment comes you're happy & you're relieved. So many things could have gone wrong #BBC

Usain Bolt would feature in the 4*100 relay race tomorrow after which he won’t ever take part in the olympic games. He is probably the best athlete in the world right now and The SportsRush hopes he can complete the treble this time round too.
