  • Description

    United States' one-hundred-year world record holder Steve Williams thinks an 5.7-second hundred yards is possible.

    Five people have returned hundred-yard times of 9.1 seconds before, but Williams' 9.1 was the fastest in the world last year.

    American athletics' experts think he is capable of taking three-tenths-of-a-second off his time by better starting.

    Williams is using the sixty-yard indoor race to build up his pace for an attempt to break the hundred-yard nine-second barrier.

    Many United States' top athletes have turned professional but Williams, a University student, says he will not think about that step until he graduates.
