USAIN BOLT & JUSTIN ROSE
Multiple record-holder Usain Bolt entered the sports hall of fame with an illustrious performance in Rio. Three new gold medals; the first ever triple treble.

The first triple treble in history
The fastest man in the world confirmed his unrivalled status by pulling off a performance that won him his third triple Olympic gold. Following on from Beijing in 2008 and London in 2012, Bolt attained the much sought-after and exclusive triple treble - three gold medals in 100 m, 200 m and 4x100 m at three consecutive Olympiads.
The Big Bang Unico Usain Bolt is crowned in gold. Released in two limited editions - a 45 mm case cut from 3N yellow gold or black ceramic - the seconds of its chronograph flyback count the time under the impulse of a hand shaped like a lightning. The design features touches of green and gold, and a silhouette of the Jamaican flag adorns the strap. A lightning bolt silhouette is emblazoned across the sapphire case-back that covers the in-house UNICO movement. A symbol of victory to sport on the wrist.
First Olympic hole in one and Olympic golf champion
Aged 36, the British talent Justin Rose will now always be associated to the Olympic Games. During the qualifying round, he scored the first hole in one of the Olympic Games. On a par 3 hole, a shot of 172 metres that wrote him into the history books. A Hublot ambassador since 2015, Justin Rose is one of the world's top 10 players. A brilliant track record now crowned with an Olympic gold.
