Usain Bolt wins 100m gold - level 2, A12
Fans in Jamaica are very happy. Usain Bolt won his second Olympic gold medal in the men’s 100 metre final. He did it 4 years ago and now he did it again.
The Jamaican sprinter set an Olympic record of 9.63 seconds. It is the second fastest time in history, behind his own world record of 9.58 seconds.
The event, one of the most important parts of the games, was not without drama however. One man was arrested for throwing a bottle at Bolt as he stood on the start line. Luckily, nobody was injured.
