Coleman Breaks World Indoor 60m Record With 6.37 In Clemson

World silver medallist Christian Coleman stunned the athletics world on Friday (19) when he sped to a 6.37 world record* over 60m at the Clemson Invitational in South Carolina.

If ratified, his performance would take 0.02 off the world record that was set in 1998 – and then equalled in 2001 – by Maurice Greene.

Making his first competitive appearance of the year, Coleman had hinted that something special was on the cards when he won his heat in 6.47.

One hour and 40 minutes later, Coleman – who finished one place ahead of Usain Bolt in the 100m at the IAAF World Championships London 2017 – was back on track for the final, which he went on to win in 6.37.
