This just in... Jeff Demps ran a 10.03 today in the prelims at Clermont at a meet full of elite athletes that saw some other world leading times. This is the final tune up for many before the Trials. The time absolutely blows aways the state record time of 10.16 and the national record time of 10.07.... however it was slightly wind-aided so will not be considered an outright national record in the official books.
But... wow! And we were impressed by the 10.19 at the Pre Classic last week!
