Rohan Browning breaks the 10 second barrier for 100m
Posted on January 18, 2021 by NSW Institute of Sport
Sprinter Rohan Browning has become just the second Australian to run the 100m under 10 seconds, clocking a 9.96s at the Illawarra Track Challenge on the weekend.
With a strong, illegal tailwind of 3.3 m/s, it won’t count towards qualification for the Tokyo Olympics, but it’s an outstanding feat for the NSW Institute of Sport athlete.
Browning joins Sydney 2000 Olympian Patrick Johnson as the only other Australian to have ever below the 10 second mark.
Australian athletics history has been made in Wollongong this weekend…
