Bolt Teases Official, Wants To Keep Baton
An Usain Bolt victory just wouldn't be the same without personality, showmanship and fun.
The 4x100-metre final of the 2012 Olympics, which ended in Bolt's third gold medal of the 2012 Games and sixth Olympic gold overall, had it all.
After Bolt crossed the finish line in world record time for the winning Jamaican team, he had a little fun with a track official. Usually after relay races, the anchor hands over the baton to a designated official, but Bolt wasn't ready to hand over the baton just yet.
Watch him playfully tease this track official as he runs by her:
Bolt was forced to hand over the baton just moments after this, and even claims that he was told he would be disqualified if he refused.
The fastest man in the world eventually got his way, though, as the officials decided to let him keep the baton as a souvenir.
