Performing Under Pressure - Justin Gatlin's PR/WL 100m (9.77) Clutches Diamond League Championship

Justin Gatlin had an amazing day at the final IAAF Diamond League meet in Brussels. The 32-year-old American ran a personal best 9.77 for the 100m to swipe the Diamond League championship from fellow American Mike Rodgers, then came back later in the day and won the 200m in 19.71, making it the fastest same-day 100m/200m in history. This was Gatlin's 2nd Diamond League championship in the 100m as well.

Just amazing to watch how fast these guys go, particularly when training for a 100-miler.

Good stuff!

  1. It would be more amazing if Gatlin wasn't a convicted drug cheat.
