"White Lightning" runs 100-meter dash in 9.98 seconds

By

A high school senior in Texas just ran a 100-meter dash in 9.98 seconds – which is fast enough to be an Olympic final. Matthew Boling, nicknamed “White Lightning” broke the school record and just might be the fastest high school sprinter in the country.

The Houston Chronicle reported that a 4.2 mph wind means Boling’s time will not officially count as a national record but it shattered Jesuit College Prep’s school record. 

Boling will be running track at the University of Georgia in the fall. Then, the 18-year-old will set his sights even higher – The Olympics. With the race times he’s been clocking, his Olympic dreams might turn into reality.
