Knighton, who turned 17 in January, ran down Olympic 100m favorite Trayvon Bromell to win the 200m in 20.11, shaving 0.02 seconds off Bolt’s 2003 time. Knighton chose to turn professional while a junior at Tampa Hillsborough High School. Bromell, the year’s fastest at 9.88 in the 100m, finished second in 20.20, his best since 2015. Knighton is qualified to race at the US Olympic trials that start in two weeks at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon. He is younger than any US Olympic male track and field athlete since miler Jim Ryun in 1964" This kid only started sprinting as a freshman after his football coach asked him to join the track team. He was a WR being recruited by Florida, FSU, and Alabama. He's unlikely to make the Olympic team this year but if he keeps up, he has a path to break Bolt's WR's.
