Fred Kerley has claimed the title of “Fastest Man on Earth” with his Men’s 100M final victory at the 2022 World Athletics Championships.

After making it to last night’s 100M semifinal, posting the fastest heat time of all sprinters, Kerley followed up that race with a heat two semifinal win – coming across the finish line in 10.02 seconds and automatically punching his ticket to the 100M final. Kerley recorded the fifth-fastest time in the three semifinal heats.

Nearly two hours later, in his first appearance in the 100M at the World Athletics Championships, Kerley narrowly defeated his two American teammates, Marvin Bracy and Trayvon Bromell, to win the Men’s 100M gold medal. Kerley posted a gold medal time of 9.86 seconds, followed by Marvin Bracy (9.874) and Trayvon Bromell (9.876) – an all-American sweep.

To the ones who thought this event change would be a failure in Kerley’s Team USA career, those critics have certainly been silenced.
