Menís 100m Sub-10 Club!

(1/7) > >>

It's interesting to note that T&T is 4th in all time list of countries with highest number of sub-10 sprinters and that all but one of our sprinters who have achieved sub-10s are still relatively young & active!!

Men 100m Sub-10s By country
(All time list, only legal sub-10s are counted)
Nation => No. of athletes with sub-10s
 United States =>          37
 Jamaica =>                   11
 Nigeria =>                       8
 Trinidad & Tobago =>     5
 United Kingdom =>            3
 Canada =>                        2
 France =>                         2
 Ghana =>                         2
 Cuba =>                          1
 Namibia =>                      1
 Barbados =>                   1
 Saint Kitts & Nevis =>    1
 Australia =>                     1
 Bahamas =>                   1
 Qatar =>                          1
 Netherlands Antilles =>  1
 Antigua & Barbuda =>    1
 Zimbabwe =>                   1
 Norway =>                       1
Total of 19 Countries with 81 Male Sub-10 Athletes

NB: I will do my best to keep stats up to date as new male athletes around the world run legal sub-10s.

And of the T&T athletes with legal sub-10s, Ato Boldon (who is now retired) leads the pack with 28.

T&T men sprinters with 100m Sub-10s
(only legal sub-10s are counted)
Name of Athlete ::::: No. of Sub-10s => Sub-10s Breakdown (Time, Windspeed, Location & Date)
 Ato Boldon :::::::::::: 28 => Please see breakdown posted by fLaSh lower down in thread.
 Richard Thompson ::::  8 => Please see breakdown posted by fLaSh lower down in thread.
 Marc Burns ::::::::::::  3 => Please see breakdown posted by fLaSh lower down in thread.
 Keston Bledman :::::::  1 => Please see breakdown posted by fLaSh lower down in thread.
 Darrel Brown ::::::::::  1 => Please see breakdown posted by fLaSh lower down in thread.
 So T&T currently has a total of 5 athletes with 41 sub-10s between them.
 Who else is going to join them? :thinking: ______

NB: I will do my best to update these stats as more T&T sprinters around the world run legal sub-10s.
You can also click on athlete's name for link to their IAAF bio.

Click links here for stats confirmation & more details:

Please note I also intend to update individual athletes sub-10 breakdowns for both the USA and Jamaica to this post in due course after I have compiled and confirmed all the information!

This thread is to discuss which of our current crop of T&T men sprinters are most likely to increase their number of sub-10s or to become new members of the Sub-10 Club between now & Olympics next year.

Please also help with any information you can provide as to the actual sub-10 times, windspeeds, locations and dates for all the T&T men sprinters who are members of the 100m Sub-10 Club so we can add to their sub-10 stats information above!

We would also like to discussion which one of our current sub-10 sprinters in your eyes has the ability to fill Ato's shoes in the gobal medals and sub-10s department before their career is over!!

Many thanks for your help & participation guys!!

Imagine that, tiny TT with 5. If we want more, WE have to do a better job of nuturing.

We also want more sub-10s from the current T&T members of the Sub-10 Club who are still active!!
Which of our current crop of sprinters are going to seriously try to challenge Ato's position as the number one T&T sprinter and holder of most number of sub-10s in our athletics history?
Or which ones do you consider has the ability to at least challenge Ato's record but need to get more serious and work much harder?
