World’s fastest human ever recorded, Usain Bolt:

Usain St Leo Bolt, a Jamaican sprinter is known for his peerless ‘Triple double’. two gold medals at three successive Olympic events. In fact, that phrase ‘Triple Double’ was ‘Triple Triple’ until Usain Bolt’s gold medal stripped off after the disqualification of his teammate in 4x100m, Nesta Carter’s  for doping offenses in 2008, Bejing Olympics. Usain Bolt’s  total of eight Olympic gold medal sprint times along with the 4×100 sprint time in Bejing Olympics which was actually a world record is as follows.

A Sad send-off for a legend:

Usain Bolt

Usain Bolt stumbled and unable to complete his career’s conclusive race. His final race ends up in an agony that he couldn’t manage to cross the finish line because of his left leg’s injury. He won the bronze medal in his final 100m dash. Usain Bolt said, “For me, I don’t think one championship or one race or the fact that I didn’t end my last race  is going to change the fact of  what I’ve done in the sport.”

The World has witnessed few tragic farewells in sports history. Among them,  Boxing legend Muhammad Ali lost his final match and Australian legendary cricketer, Donald Bradman has gone for none in his last innings and failed to achieve an average of 100 in tests.
