Olympics : Unbeatable Bolt signs off with triple-triple

RIO DE JANEIRO : Usain Bolt secured a sweep of the three men’s sprint titles for a third successive Olympics when Jamaica successfully defended their 4×100 meters relay title in 37.27 seconds on Friday.

Bolt ran the anchor leg to add the Rio relay crown to the 100 meters and 200 meters titles he had already won for a third straight Games.

His ninth gold medal drew him level with Paavo Nurmi, the Finn who dominated distance running in the early 20th century, and American sprinter and long jumper Carl Lewis as the most successful Olympic track and field athletes.

Japan were second in 37.60 seconds to take a surprise silver while the United States took bronze in 37.62.
