Carmelita has won the WAF 100 meter final with the time of 10.67! Into a headwind! What way to end the season! Putting it together in the WAF at the end of the year is pretty amazing!

K. Ken Nakamura, one of our favorite track experts, emailed some additional facts, on Jeter's performance: "Carmelita Jeter's time at WAF, 10.67 into 0.1m/s head wind, is the fastest time ever into the headwind. The previous record was 10.70 by Marion Jones in 1999 World Championships in Sevilla."
