The News

Christian Coleman completed the 60-meter indoor track in just 6.34 seconds at a championship in Albuquerque , Mexico on February 18, 2018. And very recently, the IAAF (International Association of Athletics Federations) made it an official world record in the 60-metre race category.

It's a wonderful feeling when you score highest marks. However, what if your teacher denies it. Will that be not unfair? Something similar was the case with Coleman. Before setting the record for 60-meter in 6.34 seconds, Coleman was in a bad form. He worked hard and finally broke the 20-year-old record made by Maurice Greene in 1998. Maurice Greene's record for the same run was 6.39 seconds. He equalled his own record once again in 2001. And now, Coleman hold the world record with 6.34 seconds. IAAF, however, had not officially declared it to be world record saying 'electronic blocks were not used'.
