Usain Bolt Wins 9th Gold Medal, Claims ‘Triple Triple’ and ends olympic career in style
Usain Bolt ended his Olympic career by claiming an unprecedented ‘triple triple’ and his ninth gold as Jamaica won the 4x100m relay final in Rio.
29 year old Bolt had won the 100m and 200m in Rio and is the only man to win all three sprint events at three Games.
He combined with Asafa Powell, Yohan Blake and Nickel Ashmeade to lift gold in a time of 37.27 seconds.
His Triple Triple win comes just two days ahead of his birthday, which is tomorrow (Sunday 21st 2016).
“There you go, I’m the greatest,” said Bolt, who has won gold in the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at the last three Games.
