Usain Bolt won the Olympic 200m Gold Medal on Thursday night in Rio. Yes, he has done it again. It was likely the last individual Olympic race for the eighth-time gold medalist.

Bolt crossed the line in 19.78 seconds and his slowest time in his three Olympic 200m finals was well ahead of Andre De Grasse, Canada, who took silver in 20.02 seconds and Christophe Lemaitre, France won bronze in 20.12 seconds. It is third consecutive Olympics that he has won the 100 meters and 200 meters.

“I have proven to the world that I am the greatest,” Bolt said. “This is what I came here for. This is why I said this is my last Olympics. Because I can’t prove anything else.”

“When I came off the corner, my legs decided, Listen, we are not going to go any faster,” Usain Bolt said with a chuckle. “I wasn’t fully happy. But I am happy I got the gold medal.”

After the race, Bolt said he proved that an athlete could be great while competing clean, without drugs. “I have made the sport exciting, made people want to see the sport,” he said.

After the race, one reporter asked Bolt what a 30-year-old retired person does with his time.

“What am I going to do? I have no idea,” Bolt said, laughing. “You just stressed me out about that.”
