DEVELOPING Usain Bolt wins third straight Olympic 100m gold

Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - Jamaican star Usain Bolt wins a third straight Olympic 100-metre gold in Rio de Janeiro as he seeks a unique third straight golden treble at the Games.

Bolt clocked 9.81 seconds in the blue-riband race of the Games, coming from behind like at the 2015 worlds. He flew past American rival Justin Gatlin who had to settle for silver again in 9.89 seconds. Canada‘s Andre de Grasse took bronze in 9.91.

The fans delighted in Bolt‘s latest triumph and he went on his lap of honour with a Games mascot as reggae music echoed around the arena. Gatlin was jeered by many fans in the packed stadium before the start, likely owing to his past as a two-time doping offender.

Bolt, who turns 30 on the day of the Rio closing ceremony, August 21, famously claimed 100m, 200m and 4x100m trebles at the 2008 and 2012 Games, a feat never achieved before. In Rio, the 11-time world champion and world rewcord holder is in search of an unprecedented third treble in a row, with the 200m final Thursday and the relay Saturday.

Bolt has not been beaten on the track in a major race since coming second behind American Tyson Gay in the 200m at the 2007 worlds. He was however disqualified from the 100m final at the 2011 worlds after a false start.
