Superman: Usain Bolt.

Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt recently claimed his ‘triple triple’ in Rio, which really wasn’t a surprise considering one year ago on Saturday, he reigned supreme at the World Championships in Athletics.

At the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing, Bolt crossed the 200m finish line in 19.56 secs for his second gold in China.

The victory was even more special as it was the second time he defeated American Justin Gatlin after getting the better of his rival in the 100m and completed the sprint double for the second consecutive championship.

The 30-year-old wasn’t done yet, as he would go on to claim another gold, running in the 4x100m final.
