It’s arguably the most anticipated event of every Summer Olympics, and the London 2012 edition did not disappoint.

With 2008 Gold Medal honoree and world record holder Usain Bolt looking to stave off competition from countryman Yohan Blake and U.S. sprinter Justin Gatlin, who came out on top of today’s 100-meter dash?


The reigning Olympic champion went back-to-back, setting a blistering pace and also an Olympic record with a ridiculous time of 9.63 seconds.

Blake came in second at 9.75 seconds and Gatlin earned Bronze with a time of 9.79.

The Fastest Man in the History of the World will next compete in the 200 meters. Get your popcorn ready, people.
