Vols' Coleman shatters NCAA 100m record

Coleman's time was unheard of, but to be fair, he is unworldly fast.

Perhaps more impressively, Coleman's run means he is faster than Bolt who first broke the 10-second barrier when he hit 9.76secs three months before his 22nd birthday.

The Jamaican holds the world 100m record at 9.58 seconds as well as the 200m at 19.19.

Atlanta's Coleman, a junior with the Vols, set a new NCAA record in the 100 meters with a time of 9.82 second - smashing the previous record of 9.89 seconds. At the NCAA Indoor Championships in March, Coleman tied the collegiate record in the 60m sprint with a 6.45 victory, which matched Leonard Myles-Mills' time set in 1999.

Coleman, the 2017 NCAA indoor 60m and 200m champion, stayed on course to win the outdoor double after moving on in the 200m final, posting an effortless 20.21 seconds for the runner-up spot in the third semis heat.

Child's Body Found After Missing Since 2013
CENTREVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Police believe the remains of a child found in the garage of a vacant IL home had been there four years. She said officers met to discuss the "extremely disturbing" child death case Tuesday, but would not give details.

"The sky's the limit as far as how fast I think I can run", Coleman told the IAAF website.

"I felt like I got a pretty decent start, I separated and got on top of it and I just wanted to finish to the line and make sure I made it to the final". Former Vol and Olympic gold medalist Justin Gatlin's personal best is 9.74. "It felt pretty good". "He's given me a lot of advice".

Christian Coleman of Tennessee poses with scoreboard after winning 100m heat in a collegiate record 9.82 during the NCAA Track and Field Championships at Hayward Field.
