Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt won the 100 meter dash at the Beijing Olympics with a world record time of 9.68, smashing his previous record.
However, the most incredible thing about the race was that Bolt seemed to be jogging the last 15 meters, beginning an early celebration. Bolt only started running the 100 a few months before the Olympics before breaking the world record at a meet prior to the Summer Games.
The 100 was not the only highlight for Bolt. The Jamaican sensation came back to win the 200 meters, breaking the legendary Michael Johnson's world record by running a 19.30. Johnson's record had stood for an astounding 12 years. Bolt also anchored Jamaica's 4x100 relay which also won the gold medal.
Bolt brought track and field onto the main stage in a big way. The 6'5" sprinter's post-race celebration was also something not to forget. Bolt ran around the stadium draped in a Jamaican flag.
