Tennessee Sprint Sensation Sets World #1 In 60m At Ted Nelson Invitational

Tennessee’s sprint sensation, Jacious Sears, clinches 2024 world lead in the 60-meter dash at Ted Nelson Invitational.

In a stellar performance at the Ted Nelson Invitational in College Station, Texas, Jacious Sears, the sprint star from Tennessee, set another world-class record. Clocking in at 7.10 seconds in the women’s 60-meter dash final, Sears claimed the top spot in the NCAA this season, narrowly surpassing Olympian Aleia Hobbs by one hundredth of a second and securing the 2024 world lead.

This victory marked Sears’ second consecutive meet with a world No. 1 mark, following her impressive 22.88 seconds in the 200-meter dash at the Gamecock Opener last week. While her 200-meter time currently holds the third position globally, it remains at the forefront of the collegiate ranks after this weekend’s competitions nationwide.

Notably, Sears showcased her prowess in the 60-meter prelims with a time of 7.12 seconds, only to improve and set a meet record of 7.10 seconds in the final. This accomplishment adds to her impressive portfolio, as she now boasts two of the four fastest recorded performances in the world this year. Her season-best time is a remarkable 0.09 seconds faster than the closest challenger on the 2024 collegiate list.
