A high school senior in Texas ran a 100-meter dash in 9.98 seconds, Runner Matthew Boling, nicknamed “White Lightning,” broke his school’s record, and he may even be the fastest high school sprinter in the country.
According to the regional meet’s results, the wind reading during his race was marked at 4.2 m/s, which means it is not eligible for a national record. Wind readings must be 2.0 m/s or lower in order to be record eligible. The current U.S. high school record is 10.00 (1.6 m/s wind) by Trentavis Friday from July 2014. Friday went on to attend Florida State for one year before turning professional. His personal best in the 100 meters remains 10.00.
Texas high-schooler @matthew_boling1 ran 9.98 with a +4.2 wind today.
Converts to 10.16 with zero wind-aid.
As a sub-ten guy, I’ll say this: sometimes you have to run a time wind-aided first, before you can run it with legal wind.
