• Trayvon Bromell Clocks 100m World Lead in Jacksonville
Trayvon Bromell, the 2016 World indoor champion over 60m, clocked his fastest 100m time in 7 years of 9.88 seconds at the North Florida Invitational on Friday night.
The 25-year-old could potentially be the favorite for gold in Tokyo Olympics.
Bromwell clocked an impressive wind-legal (1.5m/s) 9.88 seconds, just 0.04 seconds outside his PB, to win the 100m final at the UNF Invitational in Jacksonville, which included Olympic medalist Andre de Grasse (second in 10.05). Divine Orduduru took third place in 10.05 seconds.
Last Saturday at the USATF Grand Prix at the Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon, Bromell won a loaded 100m final in 10.01 seconds.
During the 2014 season, Bromell became the first (and is still the only) 18-year-old to break 10 seconds with the legal wind.
In the men's 200m Divine Oduduru surprised with a 19.88 (1.6m/s), missing his own Nigerian national record by 0.15. Cravont Charleston was second in 20.16.
World 60m hurdles indoor record-holder Grant Holloway concurred a -2.0m/s headwind, to win the 110m hurdles in 13.22.
