‘RIO’ MOMENTS: Team Jamaica’s Elaine Thompson, Usain Bolt and Shericka Jackson savour their Olympic glory

RUNNING MEN: Usain Bolt (centre) kick-started his Rio campaign for a historic third consecutive sprint treble, when he outshone the rest of the field to win the 100M gold. Unsurprisingly, he was all smiles on the medal podium, posing for photographers, next to worthy contenders Justin Gatlin (silver, USA) and Canada’s bronze-medal winner Andre DeGrasse, inside the Olympic Stadium.

PEAK PERFORMERS: Day 10 of the Rio Summer Olympics is one Shericka Jackson (right) will never forget. The resilient Jamaican athlete poured her heart and soul into that performance in the Women’s 400M final inside the Olympics Stadium on Tuesday. For her sterling effort, in spite of the odds, Jackson copped the bronze medal for Jamaica, just behind America’s Allyson Felix (left), who won the silver and Bahamian wonder woman Shaunae Miller, who bagged the gold. Here the three outstanding athletes share a photo-op on the medal podium. (Photo: Getty Images/Zimbio.com)
