In the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Usain Bolt not only won three Gold Medals in the 100 meter, 200 meter and 4x100 meter races, but he also shattered previously set World Records. Though Bolt is an exception in this fete, many runners have broken World Records at the Olympics.

Since the games were first televised in 1960, runners have been shredding through World Records in sprinting and long distance events alike. Here is a video compilation of some of the most epic World Records broken during Olympic Men's Track.
