The 25-year-old crossed the finish line wagging his right index figure, and did a victory lap in which he gave high-fives to fans in stands chanting "Usain! Usain!"; he even did a somersault!

The 6-foot-5 champ set world records in Beijing, winning gold medals in the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay. At Sunday's race, he bested Jamaican teammate Yohan Blake, who won the silver at 9.75 seconds, and American Justin Gaitlin, who won the bronze with 9.79 seconds.
