Lemaitre on track to Sub-20

The first man of non-West African descent to run sub-10 in the 100m dash is on track towards another sprinting milestone. Young Christophe Lemaitre recently added the French 200m crown, in addition to his century dash win. With his long limbs, the 19-year old ran a superb bend and stormed through the home straight, stopping the clock at 20.16s – a sizable improvement from his erstwhile personal best of 20.56s.

    I could tell who he was before the camera zoomed in…the guy with the poor wobbling form. Straighten him up…get him in the weight room…and look out!
