    SUB-9.70?!
    That's a tough crowd to join.
    Only 5 legal times in history, and, as mentioned above, even Bolt wasn't a 'regular'!

    1 9.58 +0.9 Usain BOLT Berlin 2009
    2 9.63 +1.5 Usain BOLT London 2012
    3 9.69 0.0 Usain BOLT Beijing 2008
    3 9.69 +2.0 Tyson GAY Shanghai 2009
    3 9.69 -0.1 Yohan BLAKE Lausanne 2012
    But I still maintain that G Holloway could do it. He's the most talented sprinter-(or)-hurdler-(or)-jumper on the planet, with the possible exception of Rojas in the TJ.

    There has never been a regular sub 9.70 sprinter. Bolt mostly ran those times in finals and like what, he did it in Beijing, Berlin and London. Did he do it anywhere else? Blake & Gay ran it once yeah? Coleman to my mind could be a regular 9.7 guy given his superior ability in the first 30. Brommel seemingly hasnt run 9.7 that much.

    Even Bolt wasn't a regular sub 9.70 runner.

    Regular sub 9.80 though? I'll start with Bromell and Coleman as they are the only two sub 9.80 sprinters in the past 6 years.

    Considering their have been only 5 sub 9.70 times ever, it is safe to say the next regular sub 9.70 runner will be the first.

    I put my money on Coleman to be the next regular sub 9.80 runner though.

    I would say maybe Fred Kerley. But right now none of them look to me like they could develop into regular sub 9.70 s sprinters. I would add that it will be interesting to watch Erriyon Knighton's development.

    To my humble (and may be wrong) intuition: Christian Coleman, Fred Kerley, Marvin Bracy. I admire very much Marvin Bracy, who deserves, to my mind, much more attentions. Same profile as Christian Coleman. Watch his feet rebound while he is sprinting. Extraordinary.
