The 10 Biggest Sports Stories of Summer 2012

5. Usain Bolt Does It Again

Date8/9/2012
People were starting to doubt Usain Bolt, especially after his teammate Yohan Blake beat him in the 100m and the 200m at the Olympic trails. Bolt then silenced critics with his performance at the 2012 London Games. He repeated his success at the 2008 Beijing Games by winning gold in three separate sprinting events—becoming the first man to accomplish this feat in back-to-back Olympics. Yohan Blake gave him some competition during the 100m race, but Bolt wasn't about to give up his title as The Fastest Man Alive. Usain then went on to win the 200m easily and he helped team Jamaica set a new world record in the 4x100m relay. After his dominate performance, Bolt said, "I'm now a legend. I'm also the greatest athlete to live." #getoffme #stunt101
