Winner
Usain Bolt
Usain Bolt won 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 x 100 metres Olympic gold medals in London to repeat his success from Beijing in 2008 – a feat never achieved before.
Regarded by many as the greatest sprinter of all time, he is the first athlete to hold both 100 metres and 200 metres world records since electronic timing was introduced. Along with his Jamaica team, he also holds the world record in the 4 x 100 metres relay.
A five-times world champion, he was winner of the Laureus World Sportsman of the Year Award in 2009 and 2010.
