Sprinter Yoshihide Kiryu tied his personal record of 10.01 seconds in the men’s 100 meters on Saturday during the National Collegiate Individual Championships.

The 20-year-old logged the second-fastest time by a Japanese as he ran with a wind assistance of 1.8 meters per second in the semifinal at BMW Stadium. It came three years after he clocked the same time as a 17-year-old in May 2013 when he tied the then junior world record.
