Despite all the noise that has surrounded the Ryan Lochte mess, Usain Bolt has been so good that when he’s performing, nothing else matters. Thursday night was a perfect example of that.
The Jamaican won his third consecutive Olympic 200 meters after getting off to a fast start. The race was never in question, and Bolt essentially jogged to the finish line making everybody else behind him look silly.
This is just absurd:
There’s not many things in sports that make you stop what you’re doing or alter your schedule, but Bolt is certainly one of those things. Bolt finished with a time of 19.78, with Canadian Andre De Grasse taking the silver with a 20.02, and Christophe Lemaitre of France taking bronze with 20.12.

So, for normal human beings, De Grasse and Lemaitre took first and second place. Bolt is in a class of his own.
Bolt has one last event, the 4×100 meter relay on Friday night, which is always an exciting event. It has to be, when the greatest sprinter of all time is participating.
