Jamaica’s Usain Bolt is now the most decorated athlete in the history of the Track and Field World Championships. On Sunday he capped off a remarkable run at the 2013 worlds in Moscow by anchoring his country’s 4×100-meter relay team’s gold medal run. The win on Sunday gave Bolt three golds at the event (he previously won the 100- and 200-meter sprints) and gave him eight golds and two silvers in his career at the world championships. That moved him past Carl Lewis (eight golds, one silver, one bronze) and Michael Johnson (eight golds) as the most decorated man in the history of the event. The Jamaican women were just as dominant as the men, as Shelly-Ann Fraser-Price won the 100- and 200-meters, then anchored the country’s gold medal effort in the 4×100-meter relay. That made the Jamaicans 6-0 in the sprints against their rival Americans at the event. But the story of the event was Bolt, who blew away the competition without even being perfect. He didn’t set any records or top any personal bests, but he was absolutely dominant in everything he did. American Justin Gatlin, who finished second to Bolt in the 100 meters and anchored the American 4×100 relay team, had the following to say about Bolt: It’s not just about he talent, it’s about rising to the occasion. He understands what that means. That takes you up another level. To be able to rise to the occasion when an entire stadium full of people are either rooting for you or want to see you fail and you’re able to hold it together, that takes talent. Indeed it does. It seems the bigger the stage, the better Bolt performs and he continues to dazzle crowds and opponents all over the world. He’s also a crowd-pleasing showman who gives fans something to see every time he steps on the track. Some love his on-track persona, some hate it, but everyone watches when he runs and that’s the most important thing. There is no doubt Usain Bolt is good for the sport.
