Rio Olympic: Bolt seals ‘triple triple’ with Jamaica relay gold

Rio Olympic 2016

Usain Bolt brought the curtain down on his Olympic career with a record-equaling ninth gold medal, anchoring Jamaica to relay glory in a perfectly-scripted finale to complete his unprecedented “triple triple.”

The 29-year-old superstar, widely seen as the greatest sprinter in history, stormed over the line in 37.27 seconds to trigger an eruption of adulation in the Olympic Stadium.

Japan’s quartet took a surprise silver in 37.60 seconds while the United States claimed bronze in 37.62.
