The question of Usain Bolt versus Michael Phelps dominated headlines in 2008. And now that the two have combined for five gold medals at the London Olympics, the debate about which is the greater Olympian has resurfaced four years later. But while you will get reasons touting each athlete's superiority -- Phelps supporters point to his 18 gold medals, while Bolt backers argue, correctly, that track and field has never seen someone like Bolt -- in reality it's impossible to compare the two Olympians. Phelps competes in a sport that offers more opportunities for medals than any other. On a...

Usain Bolt went from breaking a record to spinning a record.
The sprinter completed the defense of all three Olympic titles by anchoring Jamaica's 4x100-meter relay team to a world record Saturday night.
Bolt then hotfooted it from Olympic Stadium to a party nearby in east London, where he turned DJ, entertaining the packed crowd in the early hours of Sunday morning.
It was just another case of history repeating Thursday night
Usain Bolt became the first runner to complete the 100-200 double in consecutive Olympics, blowing away another fast field in the 200 meters.

After winning the 100 meter race at the London Olympics on Aug. 6, Bolt confirmed that the rumors of wanting...
Justyn Warner spiked the flag down onto the track.
What was supposed to be a celebration lap for the Canadians turned into an Olympic moment Warner wished he could forget.
Moments after taking third in the 4x100-meter final on Saturday night, Canada was disqualified for stepping outside of its lane.
The bronze medal was gone. And so was a chance to be part of a medal ceremony...
Titans running back Chris Johnson, by many regarded as the fastest man in the NFL, believes he could beat world record holder and Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt in a 40-yard dash race: “I feel like if I would have kept training for track I’d have a chance, but I play football and he runs [...]
The game was nearly as grand as the stage, in doubt until the last seconds and so important that the winning country's commander in chief was following it back home. Across town, Usain Bolt was doing in London what he did in Beijing, but for 80,203 people at Wembley Stadium and the two best women's soccer teams in the world, this was their Olympic moment.
