Bolt blasts into Olympic history

"With hard work, anything is possible" - Jamaica's Usain Bolt's reaction as he writes himself into Olympic history by breaking the 100m, 200m and 4x100m world records and winning three gold medals at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.

Bolt ran 9.69 seconds for the 100m, 19.30 seconds in the 200m and set a 4×100m relay record of 37.10 seconds with his Jamaican team-mates.

Bolt is the first man to set world records in all three sprinting events at a single Olympics.
