Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt sprinted to another win in the Men's 200-meter at the Rio Olympics, his third straight gold medal in that event. Bolt can add another gold tonight in the 4x100 relay race.

But Bolt wasn't the only story on the track last night in Rio. Ashton Eaton sealed his second-straight win in the decathlon, and the American women's 4x100 relay team took advantage of a do-over and earned a spot in that final tonight.
