Kiryu is the only Japanese man that has gone sub-10.
4x100 silver medalist team member Yoshihide Kiryu was a highlight as he ran 10 races over 3 days, winning 3 of 4 finals and running a meet record 10.08 in the 100.
That's his best in 2015 aside from his very wind-aided 9.87 from the Texas Relays.
