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.

I’m very curious to see the impact that Jadeveon Clowney has at South Carolina this year. South Carolina looks like a team that could make some noise. Love USC this year. I’m all in on the Trojans this year.

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.
