If there’s one thing I
like love about athletes, it’s CONSISTENCY.
But for the 100 meters, where the difference is measured fractions, you can say Christophe Lemaitre is “slicing the bologna thin”. And loving it.
He ended his season with a 9.97 in Rieti, then recently ran 9.96.
Fast forward, and he runs 9.95 in Stockholm with ideal wind conditions. Of course, this a NR, PR, and U23 EU Record. And he beats Dwain Chambers in the process.
To run under 10.00 seconds for the 100 meter consistently is the Holy Grail for Male sprinters. For women, it’s 11.00 seconds.
