8 Georgios Theodorodis 6.51

9 Michael Tumi 6.51

There are a ton or our guys at 6.52. Too many to list!

It's amazing to think that 4 of the top 10 are from Greece.
Can you say "Greece Lightning"

Another strange thing about that list is that all the Greek guys are from the same era. Since then their sprinting program seems to have declined. They haven't had a guy run in the 6.5's for years now. I wonder what happened??

it's kind of strange that none have broken through that 10 second barrier
Yes it is. The two sprinters in the top 10 of the 60 meters to come closest to a sub 10 were Richard Kilty and Julian Reus both
running wind legal times of 10.01. So close. I think it shows the incredible need for more guys to run 200's even if occasionally
to increase their speed endurance. Remember the guys that look like their still going full speed over the last 30 to 40 meters
are actually slowing down too but at a slower rate than the other sprinters. The longer you can hold that top end speed the
better the chance to go sub 10 my friends. This is why guys like Lemaitre and Guliyev did it so many times in my opinion
as they both were great 100 and 200 meters sprinters.
