Usain Bolt is a Jamaican sprinter and a five-time World and four-time Olympic gold medalist. He is the world record and Olympic record holder in the 100 meters, the 200 meters and (along with his teammates) the 4×100 meters relay. He is the reigning Olympic champion in these three events, and is one of only seven athletes to win world championships at the youth, junior, and senior level of an athletic event.
Usain was nicknamed "Lightning Bolt" after his world record breaking run in New York City, which was preceded by a lightning storm. The press frequently made puns on the Jamaican's name, an thus came the nickname "Lightning Bolt" and the "Bolt from the blue".
At the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, Bolt won the 100 meters gold medal with a time of 9.63 seconds, setting a new Olympic record for that distance and defending his gold medal from the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. He was followed by fellow Jamaican, Yohan Blake, who won silver with a time of 9.75 seconds.
Following the race, seventh place finisher Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago declared "There's no doubt he's the greatest sprinter of all time", while USA Today referred to Bolt as a Jamaican "national hero", noting that his victory came just hours before Jamaica was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its independence from the United Kingdom.
With his 2012 win, Bolt became the first man to defend an Olympic sprint title since Carl Lewis in 1988
