There was no shortage of speed in the men's 4x100m relay final Saturday, but Usain Bolt's speed was too much for the United States to overcome and Jamaica took home the gold.
The United States and Jamaica were essentially even going into the final handoff, but that is when Bolt took over and simply ran away from Ryan Bailey to help Jamaica set a new world record at 36.84 seconds. There was nothing the United States could do when Bolt kicked it into high-gear and they admitted as much after the race.
"He was basically the difference in the race. It was even all the way around," American Tyson Gay said according to the Associated Press. "When he got the stick, there was nothing we could do about it."
Bailey, who probably had the best view of Bolt's performance, running alongside of him, summed up the performance in even fewer words.
"Wow," Bailey said. "He's a monster."
As for Bolt, he's just happy to end the 2012 Olympics on a high-note.
"It's always a beautiful feeling to end off like this," Bolt said according to Reuters.
