He did it in 2008 in Beijing.
Could Usain Bolt pull off the feat again in London?
A few days after his masterful performance in the 100 Meters, Usain Bolt took to the track again today and attempted to become the first sprinter in history to earn Gold in both the 100 and 200 in back-to-back Olympics. Read on to learn if he had reason to celebrate...
Bolt once again blew the field away, leading a Jamaican sweep of the top three spots by finishing in 19.32 seconds. Yohan Blake and Warren Weir took second and third, respectively.
The lightening quick athlete can now equal his performance from four years ago if he leads his country to Gold in the 4X100 relay. Do you dare doubt that he will?
Said Bolt after the race, while acknowledging his respect for Michael Johnson: "I'm now a legend. I'm also the greatest athlete to live."
