Regarded as the fastest person ever timed, he is the first man to hold both the 100 metres and 200 metres world records since fully automatic timing became mandatory. He also holds the world record in the 4×100 metres relay. He is the reigning World and Olympic champion in these three events.
At Rio he wrote his name in gold again, winning the 100m and 200m and relay for the third time in a row, the TRIPLE DOUBLE. Undoubtedly the greatest sprinter in history.
Bolt gained worldwide popularity for his double sprint victory at the 2008 Beijing Olympics in world record times. He later became the first man at the Olympic Games to win nine (later adjusted to 8) gold medals for sprinting. He was the first to win three Olympic 100 m and 200 m titles (2008, 2012, 2016).
An eleven-time World Champion, he won consecutive World Championship 100 m, 200 m and 4 × 100 metres relay gold medals from 2009 to 2015, with the exception of a 100 m false start in 2011. He is the most successful athlete of the World Championships and was the first athlete to win three titles in both the 100 m and 200 m at the competition.
Bolt improved upon his first 100 m world record of 9.69 with 9.58 seconds in 2009 – the biggest improvement since the start of electronic timing. He has twice broken the 200 metres world record, setting 19.30 in 2008 and 19.19 in 2009. He has helped Jamaica to three 4 × 100 metres relay world records, with the current record being 36.84 seconds set in 2012.
Bolt's most successful event is the 200 m, with two Olympic and four World titles. The 2008 Olympics was his international debut over 100 m; he had earlier won numerous 200 m medals (including 2007 World Championship silver) and holds the world under-20 and world under-18 records for the event.
His achievements in sprinting have earned him the media nickname "Lightning Bolt", and his awards include the IAAF World Athlete of the Year, Track & Field Athlete of the Year, and Laureus World Sportsman of the Year (three times). He is the highest paid athlete ever in track and field. Bolt has stated that he intends to retire from athletics after the 2017 World Championships.
