After a triple-gold performance in Beijing where he was victorious in the 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash and 4x100-meter relay, Jamaican track star Usain Bolt will attempt to turn the trick once again in London.

Bolt almost came from out of nowhere in 2008 and became an international icon, but now he will have a target on his back as the fastest men in the world hope to knock him from his pedestal. If Bolt can repeat his feat from Beijing, however, he may cement himself as the greatest Olympic sprinter of all time.

Bolt will run the exact same program in London as he did in Beijing, and he is a contender for gold in all three events. It wouldn't be fair to call Bolt the odds-on favorite, however, as countryman Yohan Blake has beaten Bolt as of late and perhaps surpassed him.

Don't expect the reigning Olympic champion to go quietly, though, as he is still very much the man to beat. Here is a rundown of his entire Olympic schedule as track and field begins in London.
