Usain Bolt is set to once again take the world stage at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The Jamaican runner, who will turn 30 on Aug. 21, has held tight to the title of World's Fastest Man since 2008, bringing home the gold during his 100 meter, 200 meter and 4x100 meter relay races in both the London and Beijing Olympics.

Currently, Bolt's record time for the 100 meter is 9.58 seconds, which he achieved in 2009. He ran his fastest 200 meter race the same year, finishing in 19.19 seconds. At the 2012 London Olympics, Bolt, with Team Jamaica, had his best 4x100 meter relay time with 36.84 seconds. All of his records are, incidentally, world records, so setting personal bests would also mean running at speeds the world has never before seen.
