The 2016 Rio Olympics are sure to be a seminal Games for two of the most legendary athletes in history. Both Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt have said these will be their last Olympics.

With that in mind, our good friends at NBCOlympics.com dug up the final race from each and every one of Phelps’ and Bolt’s events at the Olympics.

For Phelps, that’s 24 events over four Olympics, in which he won 18 gold medals, two silver medals, two bronze medals, placed fourth once and finished fifth once. You can watch them here.

That fifth-place result was his only event as a 15-year-old at the 2000 Sydney Games. He rebounded by winning medals in his next 21 Olympic events.

In Rio, Phelps will become first U.S. male swimmer to compete in five Olympics and he’s certain to add to his record number of Olympic medals. He qualified for three individual events and will likely compete on all three U.S. men’s relay teams.

For Bolt, there are seven events over three Olympics, in which he won six gold medals. You can watch them here.

The only time he didn’t win gold was when he placed fifth in his opening 200m heat as a 17-year-old at the 2004 Olympics. Only the top four advanced, though he said he could have if he had the heart for it.

Bolt is already the first athlete to sweep the 100m, 200m and 4x100m relay at consecutive Olympics, and in Rio he’ll attempt the “triple-triple.”
