LONDON (AP) — Usain Bolt went from breaking a record to spinning a record.

The sprinter completed the defense of all three Olympic titles by anchoring Jamaica's 4x100-meter relay team to a world record Saturday night.

Bolt then hotfooted it from Olympic Stadium to a party nearby in east London, where he turned DJ, entertaining the packed crowd in the early hours of Sunday morning.

"I'm feeling great," Bolt said at the party. "I am happy and I did what I did and I came here to be legend and I am now so I am very happy with myself."

Earlier in the week, Bolt became the first man to defend his 100 and 200 Olympic titles.

"It is a wonderful feat," Bolt said between posing for pictures and feasting on Jamaican food with his teammates. "We always come out here and give it our best.

"At the last Olympics we did great and at this Olympics we did great, so for me it was an honor to share it with these guys and to do wonderful things and extraordinary things — so for me, I am very happy."
