The London Olympics was fascinating on different counts—there were many individual as well as team performances that captured the imagination of fans and historians.

There were also battles galore that made news during the Games.

Whether it was the fascinating duels between teammates Bolt and Blake on the track or similar comrades (Lochte and Phelps) in the pool, all of them made the Games memorable to watch.

The competition between Blake and Bolt was the cynosure of all eyes—there were many who thought that Bolt's days at the top were numbered.

Blake had won the last two encounters with Bolt and the experts thought that Blake might sneak through ahead of the legend.

Bolt had other ideas though. He did the "double triple" as they call it by winning all the events that he had towered in Beijing Olympics.

Let us watch the others who were as engrossing as that of Bolt and Blake.
