The Olympic Games are the world’s biggest stage for track and field every four years, and because of that, they are often a site for incredible, history-making performances from the sport’s biggest stars.

The two biggest stars to emerge from men’s track and field at the 2012 Olympic Games were Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt—the only men’s athlete to win three gold medals in track and field—and Great Britain distance-runner Mo Farah, who made history as a double-gold medalist on his native soil in London.
