Coleman sets new college mark in 100m

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

Oh yeah, perhaps craziest of all - Coleman is now tied for the 9th best time in the 100 meter in the world, putting himself in some elite company.

The Tennessee sprinter put his talents on display in May when he crushed John Ross' record-setting 40-yard dash time from the NFL Scouting Combine, and he was at it again during the NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Coleman, whose time equaled Richard Thompson of Trinidad and Tobago's mark, broke the previous collegiate 100m record of 9.89 to advance to Friday's final and is expected to make the USA world championships team.

Coleman is still a ways off of Bolt's incredible 9.58-second run in 2009, but chances are we'll see him challenging for an Olympic gold medal, and possibly the world record, in the future.

Coleman also jointly holds the 60m indoor record at college level, and became the first person to win both the 60m and 200m at the NCAA's Indoor Championships since Gatlin in 2002.

"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", he said. "It felt pretty good". Coleman, whose previous personal best was 9.95, became the ninth-fastest performer all-time in athletics' glamour event. "He's given me a lot of advice".

Coleman is competing at the NCAA outdoor championships in Eugene, Oregon.
