US teenager Matthew Boling has recorded an incredible 9.98 second 100m time to smash the high school world record.
Boling, running from Strake Jesuit school, has a nickname “White Lightning” for a reason as he ran the fastest ever 100m sprint on the weekend in high school history.
The 18-year-old’s original time stood at 9.98, which is the fastest time run by an American under the age of 20.
However, unfortunately for Boling the record won’t stand because it was recorded with a strong tailwind of +4.2.
But the record will remain as the fastest sprint in any condition in high school.
Boling will have a chance to break the 100m record, which is a falt 10 seconds, at the Texas State Championships in just over one week.
