Usain Bolt August 2014

The fastest man on the planet hasn't lost a step yet.

In his first 100-meter race of the year, Usain Bolt took home the victory when racing on a beach in Rio de Janeiro, home of the 2016 Olympics. Bolt won with a time of 10.06 seconds, according to ESPN:

Bolt cruised to victory on a four-lane standard running track set up on Leme beach. The Jamaican easily beat Mark Lewis-Francis of Britain, Jefferson Liberato Lucindo of Brazil and Wallace Spearmon of the United States.

Downplaying his win, Bolt said he felt "sluggish" and that his final time was compromised by "a poor start." He expects to do better "in a couple of races."

Bolt will, of course, be competing in the Olympics when it comes in two years. It is expected to be his last Olympics before he retires.
