* When Bolt Jenkins wins the gold in the 100-meter dash over Kip Magogo in a photo-finish(Magogo ran faster but had a bad start), he tearfully gives his medal to the second-place finisher Kip Magogo, saying, "I--I can't accept this gold medal, I mean, he was better than me!" They end up sharing the medal.
** This is also a ShoutOut to SaturdayNightFever where Travolta's character (whom Bolt's an [[{{Expy}} expy]] of) is awarded the dance contest trophy but declares that another couple, who danced better than him, deserved it more.
