Christian Coleman Shatters 100m Collegiate Record At NCAA Championships

In the first heat of the men’s 100m semifinal at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, Tennessee’s Christian Coleman shattered the collegiate record with a winning time of 9.82. Coleman’s mark makes him the fourth fastest American in the history of the event. Only Tyson Gay, Justin Gatlin, and Maurice Greene have run faster marks. Coleman, who is just a junior in college, also notched a world lead.

With a light rain coming down over Hayward Field, Coleman shattered Ngonidzashe Makusha’s previous 100m mark of 9.89 from 2011. The Florida State NCAA champion also ran the record at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. FLOTRACK
