Enough with the questions over whether he could run a mile, for Usain Bolt just made history at the Rio 2016 Olympics.

The "Lightning Bolt" became the first person to win three straight gold medals in the 100-m sprint event, beating out arguably his biggest rival, US representative Justin Gatlin.

Gatlin looked like he was poised for an elusive upset, exploding out of the gate in the first half of the race.

That's when Bolt put the pedal to the metal. Actually, he might've broken it when he masterfully overtook his US counterpart.


In the end, Bolt clocked in at 9.81 seconds for his third-straight gold, Gatlin had to settle for silver with 9.89, while Canada's Andre De Grasse's 9.91 was good enough for bronze.

"It was brilliant. I didn't go so fast but I'm so happy I won. I told you guys I was going to do it," Bolt was quoted by The Telegraph.

The legendary speedster is now looking forward to the 200m event.

Congratulations, Usain!
