London: The thundering Bolt along with his Jamaican teammates sprinted a run of their life to become Jamaica's most favourite heroes of all times. His countrymen, though just a few in numbers in the stadium went gaga on Usain Bolt and company's world record performance in 4x100 meters relay.
The four Jamaicans clocked 34.84 seconds to reach the touchdown. Usain took on the baton with a meter’s lead and powered away from America's Ryan Bailey to cross the line in 34.84 seconds.
It was two-tenths of a second inside the world record Bolt, Nesta Carter, Michael Frater and Yohan Blake set at the world championships last year.
The American team of Bailey, Trell Kimmons, Justin Gatlin and Tyson Gay equalled the old world record for silver in 37.04.
Trinidad and Tobago's quartet claimed the bronze in 38.12 after the third-placed Canadians were disqualified.
Bolt became the first sprinter to retain both sprint gold medals after winning the 100 and 200 metres races in London.
It was just about perfect at the Olympics track and field as the spectators had their monies worth. It could not have asked for anything more than what the Jamaican quartet of Usain Bolt, Nesta Carter, Michael Frater and Yohan Blake, showed to beat the Americans in a steep chase of medals.
With this win Usain Bolt also became the first ever man to clinch 100m, 200m and 4x100 m Gold for two consecutive times.
