Usain Bolt Ran the 100-Meter Dash So Quickly He Had Time to Become a Meme

Over the weekend, Usain Bolt defended his Olympic title in the 100-meter dash in Rio. While polishing off the final meters in the semi-final, the gold medalist glanced over his left shoulder for a few milliseconds. Which was just long enough for Bolt – with his face locked in a slightly pained grin, his legs moving so quickly they’re a blur, and his competition in his wake – to become a meme.

The Jamaican sprinter still has two more events left before the Games are over, which means plenty of opportunities for more memes … I mean medals. There are plenty of opportunities for Bolt to win more medals. (Who are we kidding? I very much meant memes.)
