Usain Bolt, the fastest man on the planet, won his eighth gold medal Thursday night by winning the 200-meter dash for the third time at the Olympics. I was captured by his comment during an interview with NBC. He said, “I’m always happy for the win, but I wanted a faster time.” This from a guy who had just beaten the rest of the world by more than a body length. He would go on to win his ninth gold Friday in the 4x100-meter relay. That’s what makes a champion. And that’s what makes the Olympics so compelling.
