    Usain Bolt wins the men's 100 metres event at the Memorial Van Damme, IAAF Diamond League athletics meeting in Brussels September 16, 2011.

Usain Bolt has proven that he is still the fastest man in the world at the London 2012 Olympics by running the second fastest 100M sprint time in history to claim gold medal. He races again in the 200M on Wednesday.

All the dates and times of his race schedule can be found below and viewers can tune into NBC Olympics to watch all the action from the track and field online through live stream.

Bolt is competing in three events in total during the summer Games; the 100 meter dash, which he has already won, as well as the 200 meter, and the 4x100 meter relay.

Amazingly in all of these events Bolt is the defending Olympic champion, as well as world record holder.

The 200M sprint semi finals will take place on Wednesday from 3.10 p.m. ET and will see Bolt look to claim his place in the final, which takes place on Thursday.

His victory and superb performance in the 100 meter final will ensure that Bolt is the favorite for the 200 meters as well, although countryman Yohan Blake will be looking to repeat some of his pre-Olympics performances when he beat Bolt on multiple occasions.

For the 4x100 meter relay event Jamaica and Bolt will be hot favorites. However, nothing can be taken for granted in the relay and many top teams have failed in the past when the pressure overcame them.

Jamaica have arguably the strongest 4x100 meter relay line up of any team in Olympic history, and millions across the globe are anxiously waiting to see them in action.

Bolt will have to be in top form to ensure he takes the 200 meter event this year, and he has fallen short in recent competition against his Jamaican sprinting rivals.

Here are the dates and times of all of Usain Bolt's races at the London 2012 Olympic Games:
