*Seventeen-year-old Christian Miller, a senior at Creekside High School in Florida, has made headlines with his astonishing performance at the Pure Athletics Invitational in Clermont, Florida. 

Miller clocked an impressive time of 9.93 seconds in the 100 meters, marking not only a personal best but also a world-leading time for his age category. 

“I feel great, it feels like all the work I put in finally came together,” Miller said post-race in an interview with FitzRoy Dunkley.

In a remarkable feat, Miller surpassed Trayvon Bromell’s U.S. U20 100m record, solidifying his position as one of the country’s most promising sprinters. 

Miller now claims the third spot on the all-time world U20 list, trailing only behind Issam Asinga and Letsile Tebogo.

His exceptional speed and talent have undoubtedly captured the attention of the track and field community, sparking anticipation for his future performances on the international stage.

“It feels great to know at the point I’m at now, I’m not just racing high schoolers, I can race people who are much older and much more developed which means I’m getting to that point as well, so now I’m coming for much more,” said Miller.

“To run 9.93… it’s a great milestone that I’ve hit, going from fastest high schooler, to fastest U-18 athlete, U-20 athlete and the fastest in the world right now is great and I’m ready to come after more,” he added.

The sprinter held the esteemed title of the country’s top prospect in track and field and officially committed to the University of Georgia by signing his letter of intent. Miller dedicates his training and competes under the banner of the St. Johns Strider Track Club, based in Jacksonville, Florida, where he receives guidance and mentorship from coach Ricky Fields, per sportskeeda.com.
