The 10-second barrier has historically been a barometer of fast men's performances, while the best female sprinters take eleven seconds or less to complete the race. Texas senior Matthew Boling ran the 100-meter dash in 9.98 seconds on April 27, the fastest open high school time under all conditions. The men's world record has been improved upon twelve times since electronic timing became mandatory in 1977. Use this to answer Questions 5 - 8.

The world record in the men's 100-meter dash, considered the preeminent track event in the world, has been broken 12 times since electronic timing was introduced into the sport in 1968. "Wind" in these tables refers to wind assistance, the velocity of the wind parallel to the runner - positive values are from the starting line towards the finish line, negative are from the finish line towards the starting line, 0 is no wind in either direction, and all values are measured in metres per second. The event is largely held outdoors as few indoor facilities have a 100 m straight. All scientific studies commissioned by the IAAF and independent organisations since have confirmed there was certainly an illegal tailwind of between 5 m/s – 7 m/s at the time. It has been contested at the Summer Olympics since 1896 for men and since 1928 for women.

As of 21 June 2011[update], the IAAF had ratified 67 records in the event, not including rescinded records.[1]. The following instruction, to adopt the 'set' position, allows them to adopt a more efficient starting posture and isometrically preload their muscles: this will help them to start faster. The Youth Olympic Games, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Monday 15th … The next iteration of the rule, introduced in February 2003, meant that one false start was allowed among the field, but anyone responsible for a subsequent false start was disqualified. Any wind perpendicular to the runners (from left to right, right to left, or up to down or down to up, although the conditions of the track generally preclude those wind directions) is ignored and not listed. In the Prefontaine Classic 2015 Diamond League meet at Eugene, Su Bingtian of China ran a time of 9.99 seconds, becoming the first East Asian athlete to officially break the 10-second barrier. 100 Meters (legal wind) 10.25 -Henry Thomas (Hawthorne-SS) 1985 10.29 -Ricky Carrigan (Compton-SS) 1991 10.30 -Randall Carroll (Cathedral, Los Angeles-SS) 2009 Del Rey League Finals (+1.7) The 100m Sprint is often the benchmark for speed, and the world record holder is labeled "the world's fastest man".

A strong head wind is very detrimental to performance, while a tail wind can improve performances significantly. [2] Track and Field News has compiled an unofficial list of automatically timed records starting with the 1964 Olympics and Bob Hayes' gold medal performance there. Texas high school sprinter Matthew Boling (pictured) set an unofficial record by running the 100-meter dash in just 9.98 seconds. Carl Lewis's times of 9.93 were deemed by the IAAF to have equalled the world record after Ben Johnson's 9.83 time was rescinded, but were never ratified as world records, and his time of 9.92 to win the gold medal at the Seoul Olympics after Johnson was disqualified was recognized as the world record from January 1, 1990.

The following progression of low-altitude records therefore starts with Hines's low-altitude "record" when the IAAF started to recognise only electronic timing in 1977, and continues to Lewis's low-altitude performance that equalled the high-altitude world record in 1987. RIO 2016 , Athletics , 100m , Men , Canada For this reason, a maximum tail wind of 2.0 m/s is allowed for a 100 m performance to be considered eligible for records, or "wind legal".

The extraordinary nature of this result and those of several other sprinters in this race raised the possibility of a technical malfunction with the wind gauge which read at 0.0 m/s- a reading which was at complete odds to the windy conditions on the day with high wind speeds being recorded in all other sprints before and after this race as well as the parallel long jump runway at the time of the Griffith-Joyner performance. The national record for a 100-meter race without wind aid is 10.00 seconds, according to MileSplit. This rule led to some sprinters deliberately false-starting to gain a psychological advantage: an individual with a slower reaction time might false-start, forcing the faster starters to wait and be sure of hearing the gun for the subsequent start, thereby losing some of their advantage. https://sportytell.com/olympics/top-10-fastest-runners-in-the-world She's Ellen they Colbert a South Carolina.

Namibian (formerly South-West Africa) Frankie Fredericks became the first man of non-West African heritage to achieve the feat in 1991 and in 2003 Australia's Patrick Johnson (an Indigenous Australian with Irish heritage) became the first sub-10-second runner without an African background.[13][14][15][16].

Hayes' official time of 10.0 seconds was determined by rounding down the electronic time of 10.06 to the nearest tenth of a second, giving the appearance of a manual time. (Note: A change to electronic timing in the 1970s might explain the 30-year gap in records from 1968 to 1999.) The IAAF considers marks set at high altitude as acceptable for record consideration.
