The five things you should know if you were only going to know five things about yesterday at the Olympics.

1. Usain Bolt won gold in the 200m, repeating his sweep of the Olympic sprint races because of course he did that. No man has ever repeated in the 200m, let alone the 100m and the 200m. And that still stands because Usain Bolt is not a man. He is some other kind of human-like creature which scientists have yet to discover. After the race, Bolt said: “I'm now a legend. I am the greatest athlete to live.” I will not deny anything Usain Bolt says, but I also hesitate to call him the “greatest sprinter ever” because if you’re including Bolt, you have to include cheetahs don’t you?
