It's certainly feasible for a sprinter to do all-out time trials in practice, especially 100m since it isn't as taxing. He could have ran the 9.79 on a windy day, the coach would have added 0.1 for hand-timing, idk, we don't know. But it wouldn't surprise me at all for a sprinter to go faster in practice. You only get so many chances in races, but you're at practice 95% of the time + for some runners that don't do well under pressure or get race anxiety they may run faster in practice. Still referring to sprinters btw, this doesn't work with distance.
