The other flash news are in the Long Jump Final, where Brazil's Maurren Higa Maggi won the Gold in the Long Jump event with a jump of 7.04m beating the Russian defending champion champion Tatyana Lebedeva who took the silver with a jump 7.03m and was favourite for the title, with Blessing Okagbare of Nigeria coming third to take Bronze with a jump of 6.91m.

So, with this the Swedish World Heptathlon champiom Carolina Klüft's quest for the Gold at this Olympics, specially in the Long Jump event has ended.

The latest news is Jamaica has smashed the World Record with a timing of 37.10s to take the Gold in the Men's 4x100m Relay event. Usain Bolt has done the Hat trick at the National Stadium in Beijing, winning three Golds and all of them with World Record performance which no man has ever achieved in History. What an exciting performance by the Jamaican. This Olympics will surely be remembered as much for Phelps heroics, as well for the new sensation from Jamaica, Usain Bolt.
