Bromell feels like the future
BOSTON (USA): Sprint sensation and fastest teenager Trayvon Bromell who will debut as pro athlete in Europe next February at Glasgow Meet shares Usain Bolt’s agent – and may just be the sprinter best placed to beat the Jamaican at next year’s Olympics writes Eurosport. “I feel like we are the future,” Bromell agreed. “Me and De Grasse have a lot in common. “It’s a lot that is hitting us at a young age that could set us up for a big future, we could possibly be the next biggest things in track and field.” Bromell also stands out for his preference to compete in running shorts, rather than the skin-tight all-in-one outfits most of his rivals prefer. Rather than a sartorial preference it is seemingly a technical one, with the youngster believing it affords him a fraction more flexibility to match the stride pattern of his bigger opponents. Bromell will have to contend with Justin Gatlin, Tyson Gay and Mike Rodgers for three places in the 100 m – while Ryan Bailey, Clayton Vaughn and Marvin Bracy all ran sub-10 seconds in 2015 and figure to only go faster in 2016. The 200m promises to be similarly competitive, with Bromell only the third fastest American of 2015. Writes Eurosport website.
Editor’s note: Trayvon Bromell and Andre De Grasse are the sprinters of the future. It will be fun to watch both mature in the sport. Glasgow Indoor will be an exciting meet in early February.
