Usain Bolt is a twenty-five-year-old phenomenon. At the 2008
Summer Olympic Games, he won gold in the 100m (9.69 seconds),
the 200m (19.30 seconds), and the 4x100m relay (37.10 seconds).
He became the first man to win three sprinting events at a single Olympics since Carl Lewis in 1984. More amazingly, Bolt is the first man to set world records in all three events at a single Olympics. At the World Championships in 2009, Bolt astonished the crowd by breaking the world records for both the 100m (9.58
seconds) and the 200m (19.19 seconds). He lives in Jamaica.
