Erriyon Knighton’s Professional Career

According to the source, as an American male sprinter who is perfect in the 100m and 200m races, he set the world on fire by winning the under-18 world champion in the male 200m on May 31, in 2021, he went the extra mile to achieve this feat, and he had to start from the beginning. At the start of the 2019 academic year, Knighton began to track and field as a freshman at Hillsborough High Academic in Tampa, Florida. He set the second-fastest time over 200 meters by an under-18 athlete in world history in the final of the 2020 USA Track & Field Junior Olympics in Satellite Beach, Florida, clocking 20.33 seconds.

He broke the 10-second barrier in the 100 meters during the PURE Athletics Sprint Elite Meet in Clermont, Florida on May 2, 2010, however, the wind velocity was greater than +2.0 meters per second (+2.7), hence the result was not considered a world record.

Erriyon would improve his time to 20.04 seconds in the first round of the US Olympic Trials on June 25, and then to 19.88 seconds in the semi-finals on June 26, shattering Bolt’s global under-20 record by five-hundredths of a second. On June 27, he broke his own record and qualified for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by improving to 19.84 in the final.
