Video: Usain Bolt runs a 8.79 relay split at the Penn Relays

A record crowd of 54,310 filled in to historic Franklin Field in Philadelphia on Saturday to watch the world's greatest sprinter compete in our nation's greatest track meet. Usain Bolt didn't disappoint.

The double-gold medalist and world record holder ran a blistering 8.79 in the final leg of the 4x100-meter relay at the event, much to the delight of thousands in attendance dressed in Jamaican yellow and green. As expected, Bolt and his teammates won the relay with ease. The United States team once again had trouble passing off the baton and finished a disappointing second place, just the second time that's happened in the past 11 years.

The US Team is a big disappointment in Mens relay. Our brothers from Jamaica are now setting the example and how can we not be proud?
