    French Sprinter Lemaitre

    Congrats to the fastest ever White man.


    With his raw potential having been seen, Lemaître joined his local athletics club in Aix-les-Bains where coaches refined his talent and started to polish up his technique.
    The athlete really started to come to prominence at the age of 18 in 2008, where he won the French Junior Championship 100m with a time of 10.26s and then most impressively, winning at the World Junior Athletics Championship in the 200m with a time of 20.83.

    From here, Lemaître never looked back and at the 2009 European Athletics Junior Championships, he won the 100m gold and in the process, set a new European junior record with a rapid time of 10.04 sec.
    This led to him receiving the prestigious European Athletics Rising Star of the Year Award in the same year which Linford Christie, Colin Jackson and Phillips Idowu to name but a few, also all won in the early stages of their careers.
    This year so far for Lemaître has been a truly fantastic one and he has announced to the world that he is here to compete with the best.

    At the start of the year, Lemaître won a number of small events in France with quick times in the low 10-second mark, whilst also recording a personal best of 10.03s, only a few tenths of a second off the French record of 9.99s.
    On July 9, the Frenchman became the first white person to run 100 metres in under 10 seconds with a staggering (for his age) run of 9.98s. The next day he went on to equal the French record in the 200m with a time of 20.16s.
    And now of course, he has just won the European Championships in Barcelona, and astonishingly he is still only 20 years old.
    At the same age, neither Asafa Powell nor Carl Lewis had run as fast. The future looks extremely bright for the young athlete.

    Thanks for sharing the video and these pieces of information.

    It's quite interesting to compare Lemaître's technique to the Congoid's technique who came in second.

    9.98 seconds is an awesome time. Let's wish Lemaître the best for his future career.

    Anthropologically seen, Lemaître seems to be a dolichocephal with relatively narrow hips causing the femoral angle to be nearly orthogonal to them. That appears to be the primary factor which gives the best Congoids their competitive edge -- and why it will probably still take some time until a Mongoloid runs the 100 meters in under 10 seconds.

    The development in the men's 100 meter dash is in general amazing. Usain Bolt might break the 9.5 seconds barrier soon if he continues like that. When he sprinted the hundred in world record time of 9.58 seconds, he even had a bad start (look at the first step) and still had enough time to look back...

    Makes one wonder where the absolute time barrier is which even the most extraordinary human being will never be able to break (as long as the time is measured in hundredths of seconds or the accuracy is at least not increased indefinitely).

    Nobody will obviously ever be able to run 100 meters in 1.0 second, so there must be an absolute barrier. On the other hand, one should actually think that someone -- an athlete who is an edge better trained or more talented -- should always be able to improve the old record by at least 0.01 seconds. Will future generations see a 100 meters world record in under 9.0 seconds?
    This is a placeholder for a signature.
