3. Usain Bolt-2008 to 2016 Summer Games
It is clear by now that Usain Bolt is the fastest man alive and the greatest short-distance runner in Olympic history. In fact, he never lost a race he was part of for three different Summer Olympics campaigns. The Jamaican Sensation first came to prominence in the 2008 Summer Olympics where he won the 100m and 200m events, setting World Records. He followed it up in 2012 by winning the 100m and 200m events again as well as the 4x100m relay.
Bolt continued this in 2016 when he won the gold in the 100m and 200m events yet again as well as the 4x100m relay. Bolt is the only track and field athlete in history to have won 3 gold medals in the same events at three different Olympic Games. Usain also holds the World Record times in the 100m, 150m, and 200m races. Along with the Jamaican 2012 team, Bolt shares the World Record in the 4x100m relay. Three of these are also Olympic Records still standing today.
