Notes: Rogge says Bolt 'best' sprinter ever

International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge finally acknowledged Sunday that Usain Bolt is the greatest sprinter in history.

Even after the Jamaican's unprecedented gold-medal sweep of the 100 meters, 200 meters and 400-meter relay in back-to-back Olympics, Rogge had suggested Bolt's career could be judged only when it was over.

But on Sunday, Rogge said: "Usain Bolt is an active-performance legend, he's an icon, he's the best sprinter of all times."
