Video: Bolt leads 4x100 relay to world record at London Olympics

Jamaica win the 4X100 meters relay at the London 2012 Olympics
Over the finish line. 

Usain Bolt won his third Gold Medal at the London 2012 Olympics, by leading the Jamaican team to victory in the 4 x 100 meters relay. The Jamaican Team also set a new world record of 36.84 seconds. If you watch the YouTube video uploaded by the Olympics channel, you will see that it was almost even between the US and Jamaica when Usain Bolt started the final leg. he thundered past Ryan Bailey of the US to the finish line to set a new world record. When Yohan Blake started his third leg run everyone knew things were changing fast on the track. Usian took the baton to lead the team to victory. There was also a small situation after the relay, Usain wanted to keep the baton but the officials told him they need it back. He did give it back grudgingly but it was returned to him 40 minutes later. He was allowed to keep his memento. There has been a lot of discussion on the internet regarding his victory display and 'Doing the bolt' is also a small meme on the internet. Whether you like him or not let us not deny him his joy and jubilation and yes, his showmanship moves and just enjoy the run.
