Usain Bolt To Retire On His 30th Birthday After Rio 2016 Olympics

Usain Bolt is planning to retire from the sport after the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. 
The current world record holder in both the 100 and 200 metres, the Jamaican has an exit strategy in place that will cement him as a true sporting legend.
Bolt hopes to win gold in Rio, set another 200 metres world record next year, and take a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
And to top it all off, he will celebrate the final day of his sporting career also turning 30. The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio are scheduled to run until August 21, the sprinter's birthday.
When revealing his plans, Bolt said: 'I think it will be a good time to retire, on top and just been dominating for so long.'
After winning another three golds at the world championships in Moscow, Bolt will run his final race this season in the 100 metres at Friday's Van Damme Memorial. 
'If I want to be among the greats of (Muhammad) Ali and Pele and all these guys I have to continue dominating until I retire,' Bolt added.

Beijing 2008: Three golds
London 2012: Three golds
Berlin 2009: Three golds
Daegu 2011: Two golds
Moscow 2013: Three golds
