Who holds the record for 100m sprint in Poland and how fast is it?

That auspicious title is held by Marian Woronin. His fastest time of 10.00 in the 100m was rounded up from 9.992 seconds, thus giving him the distinction of being the only white sprinter ever to run under 10 seconds for the 100 metres, albeit unofficially. A side note: He is one of two non-African or African descended sprinters to run 100 metres in 10.00, the other being Koji Ito. Patrick Johnson, an Australian sprinter who is ethnically half-Irish and half-Native Australian, recorded a 100m time of 9.93 seconds.

Who is the Fastest White Man Ever?

Frenchman Christophe Lemaitre, who ran the 100m in 9.98 seconds on 9 July 2010, becoming the first white man ever to break the 10 second barrier. yes, true! and his record, brief as it is, shows a consistency no other white man has ever shown. His top runs, all easily wind legal, are 9.98, 10.02,10.03, 10.04,10.05 10.09x3, show his class. All were run between 19 years and one month and 20 years and one month of age, so he's also the youngest of all great white sprint talents. Since this post he has done another 9.98 and a 9.97. He also won the European 100, 200 and 4 x 100 champs. He is European junior 100m record holder and intercontinental cup 100m winner. In short, not only is he the fastest white man ever BUT perhaps even more critically, a real competitor who relishes the challenge. The average of his top 10 x 100m times now approach 10.02e and can only be expected to improve given his youth UPDATE (18 Sept 2011): Lemaitre has now posted 9.92/100 and 19.8/200 times. His top 10 average 100 metre runs has dropped to below 10 seconds and he is still just 21 and 3 months old

Has anyone ever covered 100m in under 9 seconds from a running start?

If they would have, we would have heard about it. Maybe some Jungle man deep in the heart of the Amazon that no one knows about might have, but that someone that we know of, no. ------------- I like the Amazon man answer. I found something interesting though: covers the fastest possible "assembled" 100m based on the best ever recorded split times for every 10m. They add up to about 9.5. However, the fastest first 10m length is 1.69 seconds due to the acceleration time off the blocks, while everything else is in the .85-.90 range.Replace the first 10 meters with a .90 and I'd venture that Bolt last night possibly covered a 100m stretch of the 200m final in under 9 seconds! Asafa Powel ran 100m in 8.70 seconds as the anchor leg in the 4x100m men's sprint team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics - the fastest electronically timed 100m ever. Bob Hayes has the fastest hand-timed 100m, also as the anchor leg, as part of the US Olympic Sprint team at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics, with a time of 9.5 seconds. (
