Usain Bolt, who was already the greatest sprinter to ever live even before the 2016 Summer Games, became the first man in history to win gold in the 100-meter dash in three successive Olympics Sunday. The Jamaican cruised into the final with a seemingly effortless 9.86 in the semifinal, and though he was beaten out of the blocks when the medals were on the line, Bolt ran down American Justin Gatlin with time to spare to record a 9.81 and collect his seventh career Olympic gold medal.

With the world watching, Bolt put on a show to remember - and he's not done. Bolt is the heavy favorite in the 200m and could win a third gold in the 4x100m relay.
