Usain Bolt Wins Gold in 4x100 Relay at the Rio Olympics 2016!

Usain Bolt leads Jamaica to gold in the 4×100 meter relay on Friday night (August 19) at the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics!

The win marked the 29-year-old sprinter’s “triple-triple” of gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m events at three consecutive Games, as well as his ninth Olympic gold medal.

Usain has said the race will be the last time he appears at the Olympics.

Usain and his fellow Jamaican sprinters – Nickel Ashmeade, Asafa Powell, and Yohan Blake – finished with a time of 37.27.

Japan took home the silver medal, and the bronze went to Canada after the USA was disqualified for an alleged handover violation.
