LONDON (AP) — Get ready for more of The Bolt Show.
Usain Bolt dropped by Olympic Stadium for a brief visit Monday night and did things his way, as usual, jumping to the top step of the medal podium to collect his second consecutive gold for the 100 meters.
When the Jamaican sensation returns to the track on Tuesday, it’ll be for the first round of the 200 meters, an event he’s planning to win, too, as part of his quest to become what he calls a “living legend.”
As it is, Bolt and Carl Lewis are the only men to take home back-to-back golds in the 100.
No man ever has won two Olympic golds in the 200 meters.
After his victory Sunday in the shorter event in 9.63 seconds — the second-fastest time in history — Bolt was asked whether he’s the best sprinter ever. His reply revealed a rare bit of modesty from a guy who tends to showboat aplenty, then backs it up when it’s race time.
“I can’t say that. I think I have to wait until the 200 meters, and then my fans got to say, ‘Yes, he is,’ and the media’s got to say, ‘Yes he is.’ I’m never going to say I’m the greatest until after my 200 meters.”
