Usain Bolt takes thunder road into history

Call him Usain “Lightning” Bolt, the best sprinters of all time or the fastest man the world, but the 25-year-old Jamaica has declared himself “the greatest athlete” to have lived and we couldn’t agree more.

Only few days after successfully defending his 100 metres title at the London Olympics with an impressive 9.63 seconds, the Jamaica sprinter pulled off a historic clean sweep of the 200-meters.

After becoming the only man to successfully defend the Olympic 100 and 200 metres, Usain Bolt procalimed, “I’m now a legend. I am the greatest athlete to live. Now I am going to sit back, relax and think about what’s next.”

“I don’t know what I really want to do after this, whether to run the 100 or 200 or try something else. I need to find a goal that’s going to motivate me to great things. The rest of the season I am just going to have fun because I did what I came here to do,” Bolt added.

Usain Bolt after storming the 200m in 19.32sec, admitted, “I was fast but I wasn’t fit enough,” before sounding an ominous warning, “I am not ready to retire. I love this sport.”

By defending both 100m and 200m titles, Bolt became the first man to complete the sprint double at back-to-back Olympics. Joy of hundreds of Jamaicans present in London doubled when a third Jamaican, debutant Olympian Warren Weir, won bronze in the 200m.

while enjoying his achievement, Bolt also focused on the possibility of adding a third gold medal to his London 2012 collection, saying “It’s all about the 4x100m now, to have some fun and go out there and do our best.”
