Usain Bolt lands in Rio for his final Olympics
Usain Bolt has arrived in Brazil for what he says will be his final Olympics.
Rio 2016 posted a photo and video of Bolt landing in Rio on Wednesday night.
Bolt was asked by a reporter if he dreamed about gold medals on his flight and responded, “I didn’t sleep at all,” according to the Jamaica Gleaner.
The world’s fastest man is scheduled to race the 100m, 200m and 4x100m, looking to sweep the events for a third straight Games. He is already the only man to sweep them at consecutive Olympics.
The Jamaican Olympic track and field team is in the middle of a pre-Games training camp in Brazil ahead of the Opening Ceremony Aug. 5.
His first race is scheduled to be his first round of the 100m on Aug. 13.
Bolt raced last Friday for the first time in nearly one month after pulling out during the Jamaican Olympic Trials with a hamstring injury.
He goes into the Olympics ranked Nos. 4 and 5 in the world this year in the 100m and 200m but swept them at the 2015 World Championships despite going in as an underdog to Justin Gatlin.
