A lot of people wondered if Usain Bolt was off his game coming into the 2012 London Olympics.

As it turns out, he isn't.

On Sunday in the men’s 100-meters final, the world’s fastest man answered his critics once and for all: he’s still king.

Bolt blazed past a field that featured fellow Jamaican Yohan Blake and American Justin Gatlin to win in an eye-popping 9.63 seconds. Blake took silver with a time of 9.75 and Gatlin took bronze with a time of 9.79.

Tyson Gay and Ryan Bailey finished in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
