Usain Bolt says he will be looking for a new challenge after successfully defending his 200m Olympic sprint title, following up his victory in the 100m.
Jamaica once again dominated Thursday night’s race, with Bolt taking gold, Yohan Blake silver and Warren Weir bronze, and the Caribbean island are 1/5 with bookmaker to claim first place in the 4x100m relay on Saturday.
Bolt will hope to add a third gold medal to his tally from London 2012 in the relay after becoming the first man to successfully defend the 100 and 200m titles, which he won in Beijing four years ago.
The 25-year-old’s feat at this year’s Olympics will see him go down as the greatest sprinter ever and Bolt says he will look for a new challenge to motivate him for Rio 2016.
“I’m now a living legend,” Bolt told the BBC. “Now I am going to sit back, relax and think about what’s next.
“I don’t know what I really want to do after this, whether to run the 100 or 200 or try something else. I need to find a goal that’s going to motivate me to great things. The rest of the season I am just going to have fun because I did what I came here to do.”
