Bolt sees greatness in 3rd Olympic triple gold

August 28, 2013

ZURICH (AP) — Usain Bolt says he can achieve greatness with a third Olympic triple-gold medal haul at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.

Bolt says ahead of the Weltklasse Diamond League meet that “to actually go to Rio and win again would be a feat in itself.”

The Jamaican will run in the 100 meters on Thursday after a world championship sweep in 100, 200 and 4x100 relay in Moscow.

He completed the same triple at the past two Olympics.

Bolt says “the key thing is just to go to defend my titles. It would be the first time anybody has ever won three times in a row.”

Bolt spoke at FIFA headquarters after meeting with president Sepp Blatter.
