Eli Hall-Thompson, 2017 Track Athlete of the Meet

But in the 200m he shocked everybody by running 19.96s with only the slightest of wind aid. Burke and Martin tied behind him at 20.52s each. But Hall-Thompson’s made him the fastest 200m sprinter in the country and Top 5 in the world. Earlier in the weekend Christian Coleman of Tennessee ran 19.98s at the SEC Championships. He and Hall-Thompson seem destined to meet in Eugene for the NCAA Championships.
