Usain Bolt Bejing Olympics

"Lightning" Bolt set a new 100m world record at 9.69 seconds, smashing his own mark from May this year, and sprinted 200m in a world record time of 19.30 seconds, beating Michael Johnson's 1996 record by two hundredths of a second. He won his third gold medal as Jamaica shattered the world record at 4 x 100m relay in 37.10 seconds, taking 0.30 off the USA's mark which was set 15 years ago at the world championships.
