Bolt said after his win in the 200-meter that he came to the Olympics wanting to solidify his status as a legend. If Jamaica wins gold at the finals on Aug. 11, it will raise Bolt up to three gold wins in the London Games, giving him more than any other Jamaican athlete competing this summer. He also has more medals from the London Games than any other track and field athlete from all the countries competing.
Bolt's home country of Jamaica already holds the world record for the 4x100-meter with a time of 37.04, completed in 2011. Bolt helped win the gold in the event at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and though he ran against Yohan Blake in both the 100-meter and 200-meter while in London, they will work together in the 4x100-meter to win and keep Team Jamaica the reigning champion in the sport.
