ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Christian Coleman blasted a 6.34 60m to break the world record at the 2018 USA Track and Field Indoor Championships. The previous record of 6.39 was from Maurice Greene in 1998 and equaled in 2001. Our recap of Coleman’s world record race is here. Ronnie Baker in second in 6.40 became the third fastest man ever at 60m.
Below is our video with Coleman after his historic run.
Before he spoke to us Coleman on the NBCSN broadcast said, “It feel[s] pretty good. The start was all-right, [I] stood up and ran it. I wanted it more. I wanted to go get it [the world record]. My hip was bothering me a little bit but I like big races like this. [It’s] 60 meters. Who’s going to get to the line first? And I wanted it. It just fell like a blur. I put in a lot of work,” Coleman added before saying, “I give all glory to god.”
