Usain Bolt wins Olympics 100m final at London 2012

By Austin Amuzie - Sunday, August 5, 2012

Usain Bolt defended his men's 100m title in stunning style at London 2012, winning Sunday's final in an Olympic record time of 9.63 seconds.


The Jamaican, who holds the world record, finished ahead of countryman Yohan Blake and American Justin Gatlin.

Usain Bolt electrified the Olympics again winning a Consecutive Olympic Gold Medal, having emerged from a slow start to not merely defeat but also break the will of the fastest group of humans ever assembled en route to another gold in the 100 meters. "Stop worrying about the start, the best part of the race is the end," Bolt explained on His slow start.

Seven of the eight finalists ran under 10 seconds in what was the fastest Olympic 100m final in history.
But Bolt came home first, clocking the second quickest time in history in front of an 80,000-capacity crowd.

Blake equalled his personal best of 9.75 in second, with Gatlin also setting a new personal best of 9.79 as he took the bronze.


Bolt had come into London 2012 with doubts about his fitness and his form, having been beaten by Blake in the Jamaican trials. But he made it successive Olympic titles in the 100m and can win a further two golds in the 200m and 4x100m relay.

"I was slightly worried about my start," he told BBC Sport. "It was not the best reaction in the world, but I stopped worrying about it and executed it and it worked. You can feel that energy, so I feel extremely good and I'm happy."

Asafa Powell was expected to be a medal threat but finished last in a time of 11.99 after injuring his groin. No Britons made it through to the final.
