Lauryn Williams ponders, "11 secs is history"
Former World 100m Champion, American Lauryn Williams, believes the days of running 11-point secs to win championships will soon be something of the past.
She said in 2007, Veronica Campbell-Brown ran 11.02 seconds to beat her in a photo-finish for the World Championships crown.
But this year, 11.01, the time it took Williams to cross the finish line, placed her fifth behind Shelly-Ann Fraser’s winning time of 10.73 secs.
It was behind this thought she said: “Sometimes you have to step it up a notch, 11.00 secs is not going to get you anywhere, anymore, people have raised the bar.”
“10 seconds is going to be the regular now,” she continued.
