6.43s! Su Blazes Into The All-Time Top 5

Good news again from Germany! Su Bingtian’s 60m sprint was the standout performance of the Düsseldorf Meeting on Feb 6, which is the second stop on the six-meeting IAAF World Indoor Tour.


Blasting off at the gun, the 28-year-old Chinese record holder built a visible lead by 20 metres, and added to it with each stride before surging past the line in 6.43 to become the joint fifth fastest ever over the distance. That was Su’s second time breaking the Asian record at this category since he won gold at Karlsruhe, Germany, three days ago.




After he posed by the scoreboard displaying his latest Asian record, so called Chinese Flying-man Su thanked the appreciative sell-out crowd.


“Thank you,” he said, in very good English. “I enjoyed this party.”


It took a careful read of the photo to determine the winner of the battle for second, the nod finally going to Yunier Perez over Michael Rodgers who were each credited with 6.52.
