Former Vol Justin Gatlin earned a medal once again in the 4x100-meter relay today in London.
The U.S. relay team scored the silver medal, finishing in 37.04 seconds. This matches the old record Usain Bolt helped set at last year's world championships. Gatlin also took home the bronze medal in the 100-meters.
Bolt anchored Jamaica into a world record and gold medal in the 4x100-meter relay at 36.84 seconds. This is Bolt's third gold medal for the second Summer Games in a row. He also earned gold in the 100 and 200.
The U.S. and Jamaica were about even after the third leg in the race, but Bolt steadily pulled away over the last 100 meters, gritting his teeth and leaning at the line to cap his perfect 3-for-3 Olympics.
Trinidad and Tobago both took bronze, finishing in 38.12 after Canada, which was third across the line. Canada, however, disqualified for running outside its lane.
