Usain Bolt won an unprecedented third gold medal in the men's 100 metre final, clocking a 9.81. Canada's Andre De Grasse (9.91) earned bronze, while American Justin Gatlin took silver (9.89).

De Grasse, who's running in his first Summer Games, might not be this country's most famous athlete, but he may already be its most important, Cathal Kelly writes.
