Apr. 18, 2017

 

At the NTC/Pure Athletics Spring Invitational in Clermont, Florida, on April 16, Xie Zhenye, a postgraduate student in the Department of Physical Education, Zhejiang University, won his heat in 9.91, aided by a 4.1m/s following wind. This is the record time in men’s 100m in China.

This remarkable performance gave Xie Zhenye a boost. One of the major tasks for China’s sprinter team this year is to attend the IAAF World Championships London 2017 in August. It is hoped that Xie will give a dazzling performance.
