London 2012: Usain Bolt Still Fastest Man Alive, but Will He Defend 200M Title?

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistAugust 5, 2012

Usain Bolt is still the fastest man on the planet.

The indomitable Jamaican sprinter tossed aside any doubt raised over his status as the world's best, winning the 100-meter dash final.

Approaching his world-record time of 9.58 seconds, Bolt ran a 9.63 in London, good enough to defeat fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake (silver) and American Justin Gatlin (bronze).

At this juncture, an empowered and energized Bolt looks to defend another title in the 200-meter dash on Day 13 (Thursday).

Can Bolt win yet another Olympic gold medal, his fifth?

Bleacher Report Contributor Ryan O'Leary is here with the preview.
