Gatlin breaks 100m record

Quote:
Friday May 12, 2006

Olympic and world champion sprinter Justin Gatlin today became the fastest man on earth, breaking the world 100m record today by one-hundredth of a second.
The 9.76-second sprint came at the International Association of Athletics Federations Super Tour event in Doha, Qatar, beating Jamaican Asafa Powell's 9.77-second previous record at the Athens Olympics in 2004.

The two sprinters are due to meet at the Norwich Union British grand prix event in Gateshead on June 11.The 24-year-old American said that he had been aiming at the world record since making his first run of the season at a grand prix event in Osaka, Japan.

"I am the best of the best because I am the Olympic champion, the world champion and the world record holder now," he told reporters.

"I thought I would do it and I kept my word. I am a man who likes challenges and my acceleration today was phenomenal."

More than half a dozen men have clocked 100m times of less than 10 seconds since the barrier was first broken by Jim Hines in 1968.
