Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has been a very confident man this year at the Olympics. After breaking records once again, Bolt decided to be a little cocky.

Some of his comments, however, have raised a few eyebrows. Bolt has already ripped former sprinter Carl Lewis and declared himself "the greatest sprinter" and "greatest athlete of all-time." Adding to that, he says he is a living legend and everyone should bow to his greatness.

However, IOC president Jacques Rogge agrees with Bolt and that the six-time gold medalist is indeed an icon.

"I mean this is purely a semantic issue," he told Associated Press. "Let me finalize this issue as follows: to say that Usain Bolt is an active performance legend, he is an icon, he is the best sprinter of all time."

Bolt become the first player to sweep the 100 and 200 meter runs along with helping Jamaica capture the gold in the 4x100-meter relay. After the relay, Bolt was quoted saying, "The next time you see him (Rogge) I think you need to ask him what Usain needs to do that no human man has ever done."

What do you think Bolt's comments so far during this year's Olympics?
