>> Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt making history, winning the men's four by 100 and becoming the first man ever to claim the unique triple triple. Reuters Scott Malone was at the stadium in Rio watching Bolt in what was probably his last Olympic race.>> Jamaica’s Usain Bolt completed his coveted Olympic triple triple in style on Friday night.
00:00:20
Crossing the line at Rio de Janeiro's Olympic Stadium, a good five meters ahead of his nearest competitor in 37.27 seconds. This is a goal that was so audacious, it didn't really have a name before the Jamaican superstar thought it up for himself. And of course, that's three straight Olympics of winning the gold medal in the 100 meters, the 200 meters and tonight, the 4 by 100 meter relay.
00:00:43
That's a team event where obviously four runners from each country compete. Bolt had to rely on his teammates. Jamaica's developed quite a strong running program and Bolt brought it home to glory. This was clearly the event that the crowd had been waiting for all night and realistically, all week here at the Olympics stadium.
00:01:00
The crowds have been huge when Bolt's been here, not so much other nights, and tonight was the big night. Bolt clearly has been basking in the glory this trip to what he said will be his final Olympic games. And spend quite some time just walking around the infield of the stadium waving to the fans.
00:01:17
Interacting with the crowd after getting this gold that he's been working at for so long.>> Bolt leaves Rio with the promise of an end to a perfect career. The only question now being will there ever be another like him?
