With Usain Bolt its not about winning medals. Millions across the world stay glued to their TV screens to see bolt break yet another record. Well, the record didn’t come on Thursday night. But Bolt was at his winning best again. The Jamaican superstar stayed on course for the incredible “triple-triple” after he clinched the Olympic 200 metres in 19.78 seconds.

I don’t need to prove anything else. What else can I do to prove to the world I am the greatest?” Bolt told reporters.

“I am trying to be one of the greatest. Be among (Muhammad) Ali and Pele. I hope to be in that bracket after these Games.”

Andre de Grasse of Canada, who finished just second to the ace sprinter, finished second in 20.02 seconds to claim his second medal of Rio 2016 Olympics. He had also won silver in the 100 metres sprint event, just second to Bolt. In a way, he established himself as an apparent heir to Bolt.

Bolt celebrated his win with the usual “To the World” pose. His teammate, Yohan Blake, also took to the microblogging site, Twitter, to congratulate the “Living Legend.” He wrote, “Congrats to my friend and training partner @usainbolt Well done big man. A true inspiration and a living legend!”
