Sani Brown Abdul Hakim (Mainichi)

Japan's Sani Brown runs 100m in 9.99 sec.   

Sani Brown Abdul Hakim became the second sprinter from Japan to run the 100 meters in under 10 seconds when he clocked a time of 9.99 seconds at the Southeastern Conference intercollegiate athletics meet in the U.S. city of Fayetteville, Arkansas, on May 11.

Sani Brown, 20, fell short of the Japanese record of 9.98 seconds set by Kiryu Yoshihide at age 21 in September 2017, but managed to beat his previous best time by 0.06 seconds. He also met the standard for participating in the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.

An Olympic development coach for Japan's sprinters commented, "I thought I would see an athlete do this. We're going to see more astonishing times." He hinted that Sani Brown could be picked to represent Japan in the men's 4×100-meter relay at the Tokyo Olympics.

Sani Brown was born in Tokyo to a Ghanaian father and Japanese mother. At 188 centimeters tall, he has a longer stride than other Japanese sprinters.

When he was in his second year of high school, he took part in the World Youth Championships in Athletics and broke the championship record for the 200 meters set by Jamaica's Usain Bolt. At the 2017 World Championships, he became the youngest to proceed to the final of the 200 meters, at the age of 18 years, 5 months.

The current world record in the 100 meters is 9.58 seconds, set by Bolt at the World Athletics Championships in 2009.
