Bolt Breaks Record; USA Track & Field Wins First Gold

If you thought Usain Bolt had lost a step, think again. On Sunday Bolt set a new Olympic record in the 100 meter, finishing in 9.63 seconds.

“[This] means a lot, because a lot of people were doubting me.,” Bolt said after the race, “A lot of people were saying I wasn’t going to win, I didn’t look good.” The famous runner was seemingly referring to criticism he came under after losing a few close races to Jamaican teammate Johan Blake before the games. Blake took the silver in the 100m, finishing at 9.75. American Justin Gatlin finished third.

Also Sunday, Sanya Richards-Ross landed Team USA’s first gold in track and field, winning the women’s 400 meter. Richards-Ross, wife of former Giants cornerback Aaron Ross, edged out Britian’s Christine Ohuruogu, the event’s defending champion, by a narrow .15 of a second.
