2012 Olympics Video: Usain Bolt Leads Jamaica Past USA for Men’s 4x100 Relay Gold

Usain Bolt did it again.

In his final event of the 2012 London Olympics, the world's fastest man led his Jamaican team to victory in the men’s 4x100 relay on Saturday.

A time of 36.84 was good enough to secure a third gold in as many events for Bolt, plus a world record for him and his teammates – Yohan Blake, Nesta Carter and Michael Frater

Americans Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin, Ryan Bailey and Trell Kimmons finished second with a time 37.04 – tying the old world record.

After a bit of controversy, Trinidad and Tobago ultimately captured the bronze medal.
