*****Obi Igbokwe (Arkansas University)- We said two weeks ago that Obi Igbokwe wasn’t done with his Indoor resume’ yet, and this weekend proved that he is just warming up. Igbokwe, ran a NCAA leading 45.72 400 meter dash at his Arkansas home meet, his time is ranked #2 in the World for 2018.

*****Kate Van Buskirk (Canada)- She set a new Canadian Record in the Women’s Mile with a time of 4:26.92 at the Dr. Sander Invitational Columbia Challenge this past weeknd. That time is also good enough for the #1 time in the World.
*****Gabrielle Thomas (Harvard)- She won both the Women’s 60 meter dash & 200 meter dash at the Dr. Sander Invitational Columbia Challenge this past weekend. Be on the lookout for her to make this list more often.
*****Rohan Browning(Australia)- In a Classic 100 Meter Dash at the ACT Athletics Championships, he won the race with a time of 10.23(10.225). Why the 10.225??? He edged out sprinters Trae Williams & Jack Hale who also ran 10.23 but 0.003 separated the athletes.
*****Lynna Irby(Georgia)- She may have had the best performance of everyone on this list. The 19 year old Freshman let the world know she is a force to be reckoned with in the Track world. She ran two World leading times at the Razorback Invitational this past weekend. She ran 22.96 in the 200 meter dash, and 51.48 in the 400 meter dash. It’s hard to find 200/400 meter Athletes nowadays, but we hope she will be the next great sprinter.
