Watch out, Usain Bolt! College student Trayvon Bromell runs 9.77s 100m

THIS kid is fast.

Eighteen-year-old sprint sensation Trayvon Bromell blew away the competition with a phenomenal 9.77 seconds in the 100 metres at the Big 12 outdoor track and field championships in Lubbock, Texas.

The time would have shattered the US national college record but for a tailwind of 4.2 metres per second. A legal wind is 2.0m/s or less.

Still, the time was good enough for the third-fastest in college history.

Florida State’s Ngoni Makusha, a Zimbabwean sprinter, set the college record of 9.89 in 2011, while Jamaican superstar Usain Bolt broke his own world record with a sensational 9.58 in 2009.

Bromell would’ve gone under 10 seconds, wind or no wind, according to his coach at Baylor University, Todd Harbour.

“He got off to a great start, and just ran incredible,” Harbour said.



Baylor Track: Bromell Named to Bowerman Watch List

Baylor track and field sprinter Trayvon Bromell was one of 10 athletes named to the Post-Conference Championships edition of The Bowerman Award watch list, the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) announced on Wednesday.

The freshman is the first Baylor athlete to ever earn the distinction. The Bowerman Trophy, which was first awarded in 2009, is presented annually by the USTFCCCA to the most outstanding male and female collegiate track & field athletes in the nation.

At last weekend’s Big 12 Conference Championships, the St. Petersburg, Fla., product, ran the third-fastest all-conditions 100 meters in collegiate history with a Big 12 title-winning and all-conditions world-leading 9.77w (+4.2m/s). At the conference meet, Bromell also took eighth in the 200-meter dash and helped anchor BU’s 4x100-meter relay crew to an event title.

Bromell’s contributions helped the Bears score 93 points and take fourth overall. That is BU's highest point total since 1998 (101) and highest men's team finish since 2001 (4th).

The 100-meter conference performance gives Bromell both the all-conditions and wind-legal collegiate leads, dating to his 10.01 win at the Texas Relays back in March. That mark equaled the World Junior record in the event and was a Baylor school record.

In the opening week of the season, Bromell ran a time of 20.23 in the 200 meters, which still stands as the seventh-fastest time in the country.

During the indoor season, Bromell finished 10th at the 60-meter distance at the NCAA Division I Indoor Championships. He took third at 60 meters and fifth at 200 meters at the Big 12 Championships.

Bromell is one of only two freshmen on the list, joining Oregon’s Edward Cheserek. Other watch list member include Ryan Crouser (Texas), Wayne Davis II (Texas A&M), Dedric Dukes (Florida), Kennedy Kithuka (Texas Tech), Lawi Lalang (Arizona), Deon Lendore (Texas A&M), Anthony Rotich (UTEP) and Julian Wruck (UCLA).
