Usain Bolt Wins Eighth Olympic Gold Medal In The 200m Sprint

RIO DE JANEIRO (TIP): Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won gold again at Rio’s Summer Olympics, blowing away the field in the 200-meter race Thursday. Bolt won his eighth Olympic gold medal with a time of 19.78. Taking the silver was Canada’s Andre de Grasse in 20.02.

France’s Christophe Lemaitre won bronze, at 20.12 seconds. U.S. runner Lashawn Merritt placed sixth, coming in at 20.19 seconds. “I ran hard around the turn,” Bolt said. “On the straight, my body didn’t respond. I’m getting old.”

The Jamaican — who, we’ll note, is 29 — added that while he’s aiming to be among the greats when he retires, he doesn’t think he’ll be at the next Summer Olympics, in Tokyo.
