The fact that this kid has his own thread here on GIM is proof of how rare a feat this is for a white guy!!

Of course, if it wasn't for the tailwind the kid may have finished last! Does this mean he cheated or something?

It won't count as the official record because he had a 4.2 mph tailwind at his back

I remember when Tiger Woods was taking golf by storm. Hollywood and mass media was all over it like stink on shit, all day every day for months on end. White guy taking sprinting by storm? They will bury it.

Nah.


Headwind and tailwind
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


A tailwind is a wind that blows in the direction of travel of an object, while a headwind blows against the direction of travel. A tailwind increases the object's speed and reduces the time required to reach its destination, while a headwind has the opposite effect.

In aeronautics, a headwind is favorable in takeoffs and landings because an airfoil moving into a headwind is capable of generating greater lift than the same airfoil moving through tranquil air, or with a tailwind, at equal ground speed. As a result, aviators and air traffic controllers commonly choose to take off or land in the direction of a runway that will provide a headwind.

In sailing, a headwind may make forward movement difficult, and necessitate tacking into the wind.

Tailwinds and headwinds are commonly measured in relation to the speed of vehicles — commonly air and watercraft — as well as in running events — particularly sprints.

More here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Headwind_and_tailwind
I'm being sarcastic Searchy. The kids was moving much fast than the tail wind, which....IMHO, negates any advantage it may have represented. The fact that he lost the 'official' record because of a 4 mph tailwind is laughable!

No, a tailwind still helps even if you are traveling faster than the wind.

Shootie: Picture yourself paddling a canoe in a river. As you paddle downstream, since you are pushing LESS water with the nose of your canoe than if you were going upstream, you get a tad extra speed.

This runner's nose (and the rest of his canoe-body) has to push slightly less air outa the way.

Pussanal note: The ONE TIME I hit 14 flat, I had a light tailwind.

Lastly, if you use the concepts of Differential Calculus (eg: endpoints) you can see it clearly. Suppose he was running 25MPH. And the wind behind him was 25mph. He would be running in "still air" and he would not have to move any air at all. Less effort = bonus speed.

I humbly submit to your logic sir!

This is still a high school kid. His body and muscle structure is still maturing and his natural testosterone levels are still building muscle mass.
Once he gets to college and next level training in technique and strength "Katy Bar the Door".
If this kid stays healthy you might see him busting Bolt's records in the future. JHMO ( You go Kid)

his national record is the fastest in all conditions -- including all wind aided times ever recorded

https://www.gosanangelo.com/story/s...boling-strake-jesuit-houston-2019/3630125002/

Texas high school sprinter breaks national record in 100-meter dash

Matthew Boling of Strake Jesuit in Houston is making headlines after breaking the high school record for the fastest 100-meter dash with a blistering time of 9.98 seconds at the Class 6A Region III track and field meet this past Saturday.

However, according to the Houston Chronicle, Boling's time won't go down as a national record due to a 4.2-mph wind, but his time is the fastest "all conditions" record in high school history.

According to news.com.au, Boling is the first U.S. teenager since Trayvon Bromell to run the 100 in under 10 seconds. Bromell was clocked at 9.99 in 2013. His time was also wind-assisted.

All eyes will be on Boling next week when he competes at the UIL state track meet in Austin.

According to texastrack.com, the previous fastest time for the 100 in Texas high school history was 10.13 by Galveston Ball's Derrick Florence in 1986. That was also a national record.

My Gawd.

On my very best day on the track team in HS, I did the 100 YARDS!! in 14 flat. (Meters hadn't been invented yet. :-) )
Back in the early 60"s the country was on a physical fitness kick. At our elementary school we had to do 20 pull-ups and 20 push ups in x amount of time and some other time related running. I was 12, just going into junior high and did the 100 yd dash in 12 seconds. Always remembered the 12/12 thing. There was 1 guy a tick faster and he ran flat footed, never could beat him and don't understand how he ran so fast like that. Later on in the 90's when Phoenix had the Super Bowl and the NFL Experience was here, they had a 50 yard dash on Astro turf set up. Now in my 40's I tried running on that against my young kids. It was very sticky to run on. Very strange feeling. Don't remember the time but I barely beat my kids and haven't run anything like that since...other than sneaking up on the dog and racing past her only to be overtaken within a few bursts of her lightening speed...even at 10+ years. The knees no workey like before.

no one trick pony -- tops in the nation in the 100, 200, and long jump

https://www.houstonchronicle.com/sp...-good-test-before-district-track-13724943.php

The Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays are the perfect stage for Matthew Boling.

Two weeks ago at the Texas Southern Relays, the Strake Jesuit senior set the top marks in the country in the 100-meter dash (10.22 seconds) and 200-meter dash (20.58).

At that point, Boling already owned the nation’s top long jump at 25 feet, 0.5 inches but he extended the mark to 25-2.5 at the Victor Lopez Classic at Rice University last week.

We had the same chit in the 60’s in California.....

I did the 50 yd dash in 5.9....

Funny , we had a flat footed runner on the track team , dude was unbeatable in anything over a 100 yds...

Once he got those flat feet going the sound was unique as he ran past us slowpokes....

Remember Jim Ryan from Kansas?...
That boy could run for his time...

already on the juice? georgia signed him early because he was one of the best 400 meter runners. then he uncorks this 100, 200, long jump stuff

wtf
I wouldn’t call steroids unless there was evidence.

The kid might have just been working at his craft for a long time and just might be genetically gifted.

The kid looks muscular but not bulky.

In HS many many years ago there was a white guy on the cross country team.

Brian. That guy was a gazelle! He could do 2 miles in nothing flat. Left all us clunkers in the dust.

He was a natural. Long legs and could fly like the wind long after we were tired out.
