It’s an ambitious quest, considering that no athlete has ever won all three gold medals in all three Olympics tournaments he has competed in.

Bolt told CNN, “I’m going to win the 100m I never try to predict times, I avoid that because you never know. I’ll win all three gold, there’s never anything else for me when it comes to a championship.”

He went on to say he will also break the current 200m world record; “I think I can definitely break the 200m world record and I definitely want to. I said I wanted to go under 19 seconds and I don’t know if that will be possible but nothing tried, nothing done, so I will go out there and push myself.

“The moment you start thinking about [not winning] then you start going the wrong way so for me I always think positive. I always think of winning, always,”
