Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt further solidified his name in history books by winning the 100m final at the Rio Olympics, just a few days shy of his 30th birthday. With a stunning time of 9.81 seconds, Bolt beat out longtime rival, 34-year-old American Justin Gatlin, who finished the race just 0.08 seconds later. Bolt successfully defends his gold medal from Beijing 2008 and London 2012. In third place was Canada’s 21-year-old Andre De Grasse, who finished the race at 9.91 seconds.
