Christophe Lemaitre's 9.95s 100m Stockholm Video

>> June 19, 2011

About two weeks ago, Christophe Lemaitre eclipsed the European U-23 and French national record in the 100m with 9.96s. And he once again breaks the two records concurrently with an impressive 9.95s (+1.0) in a race which saw him beaten the 100m specialist Dwain Chambers in second place (10.07s). It was during the 2011 European Team Championship in Stockholm yesterday (June 18, 2011).

But it was not only that, he has becomes the third fastest man in Europe, behind only Portugal's Francis Obikwelu (9.86s - 2004) and British's Linford Christie (9.87s - 1993). It was also the third fastest time by a European since 2004.

He ran a very-controlled speed,  explosive starts, smart clearance,  good acceleration, smooth transition and strong top speed. Everything seems perfect. And of course, that is the only way to break personal best.

Sub-10s is no longer a magical barrier for Lemaitre, he has been very consistent at 9.9-10.0s over the last three years. Lemaitre opens the 2011 season with 10.00s in May 26, and then running against Yohan Blake in June 07, clocking 9.96s.

But remember, there are plenty of sprint monsters out there!. And don't forget Justin Gatlin of USA who set 9.97s earlier this month also improving, as well as Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago and Nickel Ashmeade of Jamaica. I've no complaint at all when Lemaitre announced to concentrate only the 200m in the World championships. Lemaitre is NOT in the TOP 10 lists so far this year:

9.79 Tyson Gay (USA) Clermont on June 04
9.80 Steve Mullings (JAM) Eugene Diamond League on June 04
9.85 Mike Rodgers (USA) Eugene Diamond League on June 04
