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.

Usain Bolt wins 200m at the Olympics and Twitter



Usain Bolt promised himself to go into the record books as a legend. He won the 200m sprint at the Olympics London 2012 and truly moves into the record books as the only athlete to win the sprint double-double. Wining both events in 2008 and now 2012 Usain Bolt declared himself a legend. he did set himself anew Olympic record in the 100m dash but failed to do so in the 200m - saying it was because of an injury. So defending his titles for two consecutive Olympics is a record, he did create another record online just as he won the 200 meter sprint. He set a new Twitter record and Twitter sent out a Tweet  saying 'Record alert! @usainbolt sets a new Olympic Games conversation record with over 80,000 TPM for his 200m victory'. Yes that was an Olympic first on Twitter 80,000 tweets per minute after his victory. 

Please find the tweet below and we would like to join hands with Twitter in congratulating Usain Bolt.

Just before the race there was no 'Do The Bolt' the lightning striking post of Usain Bolt. In face before the start of the race by put his finger to his mouth and shushed the audience.

Video: This week in Athletics -Usain Bolt False Start and 200m Win



For all of us who were waiting for the 100m and specifically to watch Usain Bolt win, were disappointed. No one knew this more than Usain himself. Who promoised to make it up to fans. Well he did do justice to his promise by winning the 200m race. Suffering from the previous false start Bolt started the 200m race a little slower. But by the time the race was finished Bolt had left the rest of the runners far behind. His jubilation after winning must be seen to be enjoyed. His trademark invisible arrow was short into space and then he played hide-and-seek with the cameras. He holds the world record with a timing of 19.19, this time he clocked 19:40 which is the fourth fastest in the world. The IAAF World Championships 2011 are happening at Daegu, South Korea.








Usain Bolt and his boys also won the 4X100m relay and set a world record 37.04. seconds. After the disappointing false start at the 100m Bolt now has something to really be proud of.
