In the Olympic Games, the men’s 100 metres is perhaps considered the most important of the track and field events. The 200 metres is not far behind. In the history of the Olympics only 8 men have won both the 100 metres and the 200 metres in the same Olympics. The list includes the legendary Jesse Owens (USA) in 1936. the Russian, Valery Borzov in 1972 and Carl Lewis (USA) in 1984. This great feat was emulated by Usain Bolt of Jamaica who is just 22 years old recently in the 2008 Olympics at Beijing.
