The American Christian Coleman in his own country, the almost 20-year-old world record at the 60 metres indoor improved. Coleman did this for a contest in South Carolina to finish in a time of 6.37 seconds. That’s two hundredths of a second faster than the 1998 record of Maurice Greene. Greene ran that time twice.
The new world record holder, his compatriot Tevin Hester (6.57) and the bahamian local Warren, Fraser (6.69). Coleman shone in the series all with a chrono of 6.47.
Coleman won last year, silver in the 100 metres at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS of athletics in London. He had in that match only to travel against the winner, Justin Gatlin, but he was Usain Bolt. The American grabbed a team also silver in the 4×100 metres.
