Texas Teen Almost Breaks Usain Bolt’s Record As Fastest Man During High School Race

Usain Bolt became a legend at the age of 23 when he ran the 100-meter sprint in 9.58 seconds — beating the next top competitor by just 1/10 of a second.

Eighteen-year-old Matthew Boling from Houston Texas is currently the fastest high school sprinter in the United States.

Boling is being dubbed “White Lightning” after completing the 100-meter dash in a mind-blowing 9.98 seconds. That is only 4/10 of a second slower than Bolt’s record.

Boling was the first American high school student to break the 10-second mark in six years, but his time will not be a national record because it was aided by wind measuring 4.2 meters per second. The legal limit for wind in track and field is plus-2.0 meters per second.

The next-closest time of any of his opponents Saturday was 10.27 seconds.

Boling, who is among the best prep track and field athletes in the country, will compete for the University of Georgia next year. He also was part of the U.S. team for the International Association of Athletics U-20 world championships last summer in Finland.
