Olympics 2012: Jamaica Bolts to the Top

It's no surprise that Usain Bolt held his all-age school record for 100 meters when he was just 12 years old. Ever since, his rise to running fame has never slowed down. The 100m final in the London Games was no different. Justin Gatlin of the US attacked early on, but at the halfway mark, Usain bolted to the front to win by a large margin. In a race that included three Americans and three Jamaicans, the Jamaicans dominated the podium.

Bolt was joined by teammate Yohan Blake, who finished second. The two paraded around the track afterward, encouraging the Brits to rejoice with them. Bolt is not shy when it comes to the victory lap, but after defending his title as "fastest man in the world," he earned it.
