Christophe Lemaitre Wins European 100m (Recap and Video)

July 28, 2010

The highlight of Wednesday's action of the 2010 European Champs was Christophe Lemaitre's win the 100m in 10.11 over 4 other guys  including Mark Lewis Francis and Dwain Chambers who all had the same time in 10.18.

LeMaitre is only 20 years of age and gained fame by being the first white guy under 10.00 in the 100m earlier this year.

The runner-up Mark Lewis Francis ran 9.97, nine years ago and has struggled tremendously since but this silver was a huge surprise.

We've got two videos of LeMaitre's European win.

The first one in French, second one in English.
