Usain Bolt holds world records in the 100-meter, the 200-meter and the 100-meter relay. He's totaled five gold medals at the World Championships. He has six gold medals from the last two Olympics alone. This is the resume of one of the greatest track and field athletes ever, so when Bolt announced that he would be retiring after the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the sports world took notice.

NBC Olympics analyst Ato Boldon (@AtoBoldon) joined the SportsDash crew to reflect on Bolt's career, and he says that if the Jamaican wins the 100-meter and 200-meter in Rio, he will join Muhammad Ali, Pele and Michael Jordan in the discussion for greatest athlete of all time.
