Usain Bolt is a pretty fast man who is loving his time at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The Jamaican runner can't help but relish the moment in sprints where others look completely gassed. 

Bolt's Olympics are far from over, too. After becoming the first athlete to win three straight Olympic golds in the 100m dash, Bolt will also vie for the "triple triple," which, aside from the phonetically pleasing title, means earning a gold in 200m and the 4X100 relay events. Bolt won those events in 2008 and 2012 as well. 

Clearly, the feat would be impressive — and per Bolt's own words, immortalize him. The Jamaican sprinter's final events will start with the first round of the 200M on Tuesday at 8 a.m. Eastern time. 

The rest of Bolt's racing schedule is below.

Aug. 16 — 200m (Round 1) 8 a.m. Eastern time 
Aug. 17 – 200m (Semifinals) 7 p.m. Eastern time 
Aug. 18 – 4 x 100m (Round 1) 8 a.m. Eastern time 
Aug. 18 – 200m (Finals) 5 p.m. Eastern time 
Aug. 19 – 4 x 100m (Finals) 7 p.m. Eastern time
