Usain Bolt wins 100-meter final at London 2012

  • Usain Bolt has confirmed his status as the greatest sprinter in history as he retained his Olympic 100-meter title.

    Many doubted Bolt’s ability following a season plagued by defeat and injury.

    He ran the second-fastest time ever to beat his training partner Yohan Blake into silver and American Justin Gatlin into bronze.

    Bolt's 9.63 seconds, just 0.05 seconds slower than his own world record, was a new Olympic best.

    Blake (9.75) and Gatlin (9.79) both set new personal bests.
