The 2008 Olympic Games will be remembered by many track and field fans as the year Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt rewrote the record books, setting world records in both the 100-meter dash and 200-meter dash en route to winning Olympic gold medals in both events.

Bolt may still be the world’s greatest sprinter, and he will certainly be pursuing golds and records in both events once again. This year, however, with a strong field gunning for him in both events, it is unlikely that he will be able to dominate the way he did at the Beijing Games.

Read through the following slides to find why Bolt and 10 other Olympic gold medalists should not have the same success in London that they had in Beijing four years ago.

Note: This slideshow only includes athletes who are competing in the same event(s) they won in the 2008 Olympic Games.
