LONDON — It'd be a wasted opportunity to go to the Olympics — a place that's obviously teeming with famous athletes — and not grab a few chance selfies.

This doesn't just apply to the public, either.

On Sunday night, Usain Bolt claimed his third 100 meter gold medal. He posed for a pretty brilliant photo during the race itself, and then after he'd crossed the finish line he was joined by the women's heptathlon medal-winners for some equally brilliant selfies.

Nafissatou Thiam, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Brianne Theisen-Eaton were receiving their medals when Bolt finished his race.

Sensing that a historic selfie moment was at hand, they hopped the fence to join him on the track

After grabbing a few pictures, they went their separate ways to resume their own celebrations.
