Usain Bolt is on top of the world right now.
Bolt anchored Jamaica to a thrilling victory in the men’s 4x100M relay at the World Championships on Sunday, holding off the United States with a world-leading time of 37.36.
The US finished in 37.66, while Canada finished third with a time of 37.92, a season-best time.
Bold is simply unbeatable right now, with a three-gold-medal performance to match his performance in London in 2012.
Jamaica’s win was its fifth straight global 4 x 100M title, thanks to strong running from Nesta Carter, Kemar Bailey-Cole, Nickel Ashmeade and Bolt, who finished the win to help Jamaica to yet another 4x100M championship.
The victory was even more impressive given the absence of the injured Yohan Blake, who helped win the gold in London last summer.
The win gave Jamaica a total of nine medals, good for third best at the 14th IAAF World Championships, and six gold medals, tied for second overall.
