It’s an All-American podium in the men’s 100 meters at the first U.S. track and field world championships.
Fred Curley earned gold, Marvin Bracey earned silver and Trayvon Bromell earned bronze in Saturday’s competition at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore. Curley’s time of 9.86 seconds beat Bracey by more than two-hundredths of a second, while Bracey edged Bromell by just two-thousandths of a second.
Curley won silver at the Tokyo Olympics, second only to Italy Lamont Jacobs. He now has four World Championship medals and a second gold. For the first time, he became in 2019 in the 4×400 m relay.
This is the third time the USA has won the men’s 100 meters at the world championships. Those other occasions occurred in 1983 and 1991, with Carl Lewis winning gold each time.
There was a fourth American in Saturday’s final. Christian Coleman, who won the last world championship in 2019, finished sixth with a time of 10.01 seconds.
