Cool runnings: Bolt leads 1-2-3 Jamaica finish in 200

Usain Bolt looked to his left just before breaking through the tape to win the men’s 200-meter at the 2012 Olympic Games, checking to make sure he finished ahead of his teammate, Yohan Blake. He did, and became the first man to win both 100 and 200 meter gold in back-to-back Olympics.
