The Loaded 60 Meter dash field in the USA
The field is not set yet, but we can hardly wait to see what the 2018 60 meter dash has in store for the U.S.A. There are legitimate 7 Sprinters that could make the team for the World Indoor Championships in 2018, and those athletes pose a real chance to make the podium. Below we showcase the athletes we believe could be World championship medalist in Birmingham, Great Britain March 2018.
- Christian Coleman- In 2017 he was tied for the World lead in the 60 meter dash with a time of 6.45. He also ran the World’s third and fourth fastest times in the event for 2017. He has the quick start and the acceleration to finish the race. Winning gold in Birmingham would put him at the top of American sprints.
- Ronnie Baker- He sped to the 2017 60 meter National championship running a world lead 6.45. Just the month before he ran what was the world lead at the time in Torun with a time of 6.46. In our opinion, the 60 meter dash is his signature event. His power in the 60 meter dash is a advantage most of his competitors don’t have.
- Trayvon Bromell- Lets not get sprinters amnesia, the Reigning 60 meter dash World Champion will have a say so at the 2018 World championships. In 2016 he ran the second fastest 60 meter dash time in the world for the season 6.47. As far as acceleration from 40 to 60 meters Bromell may be the best in the world. We do expect him to be healthy, and we have predicted he will regain his throne, it’s early but who cares that what makes the sport fun.
- Leshon Collins- During the 2017 he took home the silver medal in the 60 meter dash at the USATF National championships. His time of 6.54 was tied for 11th in the world for the 2017 season. We look for him to be in the top of the world when it comes to 60 meter dash times in 2018.
- Kendal Williams- Who knows what the future holds, the reason we put Kendal Williams on the list is because he ran fourth fastest 60 meter dash time for the 2017 season. Just like college basketball or football players, what if he ran in the 6.43-6.47 range whose to say he won’t take his talents to the next level. Just like running backs, sprinters don’t last forever, he could be a world championship medalist if he puts up great times indoors.
- Michael Rodgers- Throughout his career, his has been a professional in every sense of the word. He has been consistent through all the years we’ve followed his career, and we feel the he’s not done yet. He is our dark horse not only to make the U.S. team, but to possibly medal if healthy.
- Marvin Bracy- Football season will be over by the time USATF Championships roll around in February, if Marvin Bracy has not signed with a team his Indoor comeback could be historic. Marvin Bracy could come back and be a major competitor in the 60 meter dash. He won three straight 60 meter National titles from 2014-2016. It would definitely be fun to see him in 2018.
