Trayvon Bromell is fast. Really, really fucking fast.

On Monday, the 18-year-old Baylor freshman captured the Big 12’s most prestigious sprinting title in the 100 meters at the outdoor championships in Lubbock, Texas. His winning time of 9.77 seconds was absolutely filthy. Like, Usain Bolt level filthy.

If you freeze-frame when he crosses the line, you can see the enormous margin between him and the 2nd and 3rd place finishers.

The time is the 3rd fastest in NCAA history, but it can’t be considered for the record books because it was “wind-assisted.” For perspective’s sake, though, Usain Bolt is credited with the 9th fastest wind-assisted 100M dash of all-time with the same time that Bromell ran Monday. His time blows the current NCAA record of 9.89 seconds out of the water, and was only the 5th instance recorded all year that was sub ten seconds.

His reaction was exactly what you’d expect.

“Thank you God for making me so damn fast!”

I’ll put money on it right now that this kid will have something special to show the world in the next few summer Olympics, and he’ll look damn good blowing the pack away in the red, white and blue.
