2009 - End of Year Reviews – SPRINTS

(0 votes)

from IAAF - Monte-Carlo - In the concluding edition of their comprehensive review of the last 12 months of Athletics competition, statisticians A. Lennart Julin and Mirko Jalava give their impressions of the SPRINTS in 2009. MEN - 100m 9.58.

That number more or less sums up 2009 as far as 100m running is concerned. Usain Bolt cutting more than a tenth off of his one-year-old World record in the World Championships final was not just the greatest moment of the year but arguable of the whole history of 100m running. Such a massive improvement of the most prestigious of all World records should simply not be possible in this day and age.
