Usain next set his sight on squaring with Carl Lewis’ deed of winning gold in the 100 meters and 200 mters in a similar Olympics. He likewise would have liked to split Michael Johnson’s reality record of 19.32 in the 200, set amid the 1996 Summer Games. Usain was so great in the preliminaries that he ran over the end goal.
In the last, he broke the tape at 19.30 to end up plainly the new world record-holder. Thereafter the PA framework played “Cheerful Birthday.” Usain would turn 22 the next day.
After two days, Usain ran the third leg of the 4 x 100. The Jamaicans dashed to triumph, and Usain copped his third gold of the Summer Games. He, Carter, Michael Frater, and Powell set another Olympic record with a period of 37.10 seconds.
