“Christophe Lemaitre, retour des championnats du monde 2011 et rentrée universitaire!”
September 12, 2011Posted by on
With three European titles and two medals from the Daegu World Championships, it is fascinating to think that Christophe Lemaitre is just a youngster. At twenty-one years old, the Frenchman had just begun his university studies, days after his groundbreaking performance in Daegu.
Matt Stroup of Universal Sports had some interesting thoughts on Lemaitre’s possible conduct in class.
With his fourth place in the 100m dash, a bronze in the 200m dash and a silver in the 4x100m relay, Lemaitre had announced his arrival at the global stage. Indeed, he is no fluke – no mere one-hit wonder. His relative youth, as shown by the clip above, belies his potent speed on the track.
