There's no question that Bolt is the star of track and field sports. The 29-year-old has taken home gold six times, for 100, 200 and sprint relays in 2008's Beijing games and 2012's London games. 

For the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro — Bolt's last before retirement in 2017 — you can expect him to show off his gold-standard abilities. 

To make sure you catch what is sure to be a blink-and-you'll-miss-it performance, check out Bolt's race schedule below:

Aug. 13 – 100m (Round 1)
Aug. 14 – 100m (Semifinals)
Aug. 14 – 100m (Finals)
Aug. 16 – 200m (Round 1)
Aug. 17 – 200m (Semifinals)
Aug. 18 – 4 x 100m (Round 1)
Aug. 18 – 200m (Finals)

Let's hope that Bolt's already remarkable career comes to a fittingly strong finish in Rio.
