Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake Dominates 100m London Olympics 2012

Tue, 7 Aug 2012 13:21:57 EST

The 2012 London Olympics recently heated up with the men's 100 meter event at the stadium where Usain Bolt won the gold medal with an amazing time of 9.63s setting a new Olympic record. He was followed closely by fellow countrymen Yohan Blake who won the silver with 9.75s and American Justin Gaitlin who won the bronze with 9.79s.

Bolt credited his win to his team mate Blake who had 'woken him up' after he was beaten in the recent Jamaican Olympics trial in June this year. Bolt spent more time focusing on his training after that and proved that he was indeed the fastest man in the world by clinching the gold easily. He is currently a 5 time world champion and 4 time Olympic gold medalist.

In the last Beijing 2008 Olympics, Bolt won the gold for the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay. He is expected to repeat that feat in this year's Olympics in London with the Jamaican team. Nicknamed the 'Lightning Bolt', he is one of the main attractions for the track and field event that millions will be watching. Bolt is also the first man to win 3 sprinting events in a single Olympics since Carl Lewis in 1984. On top of that he managed to set 3 world records in the Beijing Olympics at the same time.

In 2009, Bolt won the World Championship in both the 100m (in 9.58s) and 200m (in 19.19 secs) making him the first man to ever hold both the world and Olympic title at the same time.

Meanwhile, his fellow team mate and countrymen Yohan Blake has also been catching up. He is currently the youngest sprinter who has broken the 10 second barrier when he was only 19 years old. In 2011, Blake won the World Championship in the 100m for the gold medal in 9.92s becoming the youngest world champion surpassing Carl Lewis. This was also due to the fact that Bolt was disqualified in the same event for a false start. The London 2012 Olympics is the first Olympics for Blake.

Viewers will get a chance to see who will win the 200m and 4x100m relay in the next few days. But one thing remains certain, the Jamaican favorites - Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake looks set to dominate both of these track and field event.

While these star athletes bathe in the glory of their win, don't forget that a lot of hard work and training went into producing the end results – Olympics and World Championship medals for the events that they excel in.
