Su Bingtian sets 9.99 and broke 10s barrier in 2015 Prefontaine Classic

>> May 31, 2015

China's SU BINGTIAN became the second "white man" and first Asian-born athlete in history to have gone sub 10 seconds in 100m with a time of 9.99 (+1.5) during the 2015 Prefontaine Classic, a Diamond League Series in Eugene, Oregon USA on 30 May 2015.

For a record, a non-African descent CHRISTOPHE LEMAITRE of France became the first white man to break the 10s barrier after setting 9.98 (+1.3) in 2010 French national championships.

In addition, Australian PATRICK JOHNSON whose father is an Irish, and mother an indigenous Australian is also considered from non-African descent. Johnson has a lifetime best of 9.93 in 100m, but also a wind-assisted of 9.88.

The 5'8" Bingtian also became the 99th sprinter to crack the 10s barrier, after the first ever (automatic-time) sub-10 of 9.91w (+5.3) recorded by BOB HAYES in 1964.

The first legal sub-10 however came later in 1968 when JIM HINES stopped the clock at 9.95 (+0.3) en route to win his Olympic gold at high altitude in Ciudad de Mexico.

The living legend CARL LEWIS made a history of becoming the first man to run an auto-time under 10s at low altitude with 9.97 at Modesto California in May 1983.

In a single month of May 2015, five FIRST legal sub-10 have been recorded (including Bingtian); Clayton Vaughn (May 10), Andre de Grasse (May 17), Bryce Robinson (May 17), Marvin Bracy (May 20) with 9.93, 9.97, 9.99, and 9.95, respectively.

Anyway, my story of sprint 100m will never finish!. But the following are the useful statistical facts and figures that have been updated as of 31 May 2015.
