10 legendary athletes who we bid goodbye to at the Rio Olympics
Move over, Flash. Usain Bolt is without a shadow of a doubt, The Fastest Man Alive. There were doubts cast over Bolt’s form and fitness in the build-up to the Olympics, but the Jamaican was quick to dispel those claims with a terrific performance in Rio.
The now 30-year-old (following his birthday on 21 August) brushed the competition aside to become the first ever “triple-triple” runner in history as he won gold in the Men’s 100m, 200m, and the 4x100m relay. Bolt has maintained for years now that he will retire after the World Championships in 2017 so Rio 2016 may very well have been Usain Bolt’s swansong.Published 22 Aug 2016, 12:58 IST
