Bromell’s Continues Impressive Start To 2023

Bromell, who previously recorded a times of 6.61 and 6.51 seconds en route to a second place finish at the 2023 New Balance Indoor Grand Prix last weekend, made his career marks at the 2023 Tiger Paw Invitational with his outstanding performance.

The 27-year-old recorded a time of 6.54 in the heats and then sizzled to new PB of 6.46 seconds in the semi-final before returning for the final to tie for sixth-best performer on the all time list over the men’s 60m and he joined Su Bingtian and Dwain Chambers at that position.

The semi-final and final winning time improved on Bromell’s previous personal best of 6.47 seconds, set in 2016, and bettered the 2023 best time of 6.49 seconds recorded by Micah Williams of Oregon in Lubbock, Texas on January 27th.

Marcellus Moore of Texas also produced a personal best with his time of 6.56 seconds, taking second place in the event. Sterling Warner-Savage of Louisville clocked in at 6.59 seconds for third place, while NC State’s Alex Lang came in fourth with a time of 6.61 seconds.

Despite posting an impressive 6.55 this season, standout Kentucky freshman Jordan Anthony could only manage a time of 6.68 for sixth place at the 2023 Tiger Paw Invitational today, after he struggled to recover from a sluggish start.
