Tonight is all about Usain Bolt. He's currently on a victory lap around the Olympic Stadium, with the entire crowd largely chanting his name, as he throws lightening bolt after lightening bolt. Incredible.
Bolt romped in what he says is his last Olympic 200-meter race Thursday night, but he finished in 19.78 seconds, more than a half-second short of his world record, the one he said he really wanted to break.
Andre de Grasse of Canada finished second in 20.02, and Christophe Lemaitre of France took the bronze in 20.12.
Pernille Blume’s winning gold medal brings Denmark it’s first ever medal in the women’s 50 freestyle, and their 11th female swimming medal ever. The pool where the action has been has seen a lot of ” 1st ever” take place.

The man also has some as they say ‘mod’ taste in music.
“When I was eleven, I discovered his first solo album and then delved into the roots of that with The Jam and stuff. I’m also really into Steve Cradock’s latest solo album, which is kind of psychedelic a little bit Beatlesque – his solo work is completely different to Paul Weller’s solo stuff. Weller’s more recent stuff I don’t really like as much, some of it’s good, but some of it’s a bit too out threre for me. While Steve Cradock has stayed with that Ocean Colour Scene thing, which was my first love really in the early 90s.” – Bradley Wiggins
