Usain Bolt Wins Relay Gold to Triple His Triples
Three races, nine golds. The Jamaican considered the greatest sprinter ever anchored the 4x100-meter relay Friday, charging ahead of Japan to score gold for his third straight Games. That mirrored his triple crowns in the individual 100-meter and 200-meter sprints earlier in the Rio Olympics. On the same track, the U.S. relay team finished third, but a baton pass disqualification — now being challenged — handed the bronze medal to Canada. U.S. women won gold in their 4x100 relay, however, beating Jamaica and Britain to defend their title.
