Is This The Japanese Usain Bolt?
They’re saying that Yoshihide Kiryu, a high school student from Kyoto, Japan, is the fastest 17-year-old on the planet, and looking at this I don’t doubt it. Kiryu, who broke world youth 100-meter record twice last year as a 16-year-old, tied the junior world record in that event on April 29 by running a 10.01 at the Mikio Oda Memorial in Hiroshima, Japan. Yahoo Sports:
Kiryu’s performance late last month tied Trinidad and Tobago’s Darrel Brown — who won four silver medals at the World Championships from 2001-09 — and American Jeff Demps — a 4×100-meter silver medalist at last summer’s London Olympics and a member of the New England Patriots this past NFL season. They were a year older than Kiryu when they recorded their 10.01-second times.
Next targets: the Japanese national record of 10.00 seconds, set by Koji Ito in 1998. And then — why not? — Usain Bolt’s 100-meter world record of 9.58 seconds, set in 2009.
I just want to hear him say “You crazy, Bob,” in Japanese.
