Montverde, Fla. (June 10) – High school sprint sensation Issam Asinga stormed to another blazing time after burning the track with a wind-assisted 9.83 seconds (+2.6 m/s) to claim the men’s 100m title at the Star Athletics Sprint Series, meeting #1 on Saturday (10). In the women’s race, American sprinter Sha’Carri Richardson continued to showcase her exceptional form this season, securing victory with a wind-aided time of 10.73 seconds (+2.6 m/s).

Asinga, a senior at Montverde Academy who recently committed to Texas A&M University, continued his remarkable season by matching his personal best in all-conditions and ran a sub-10 seconds 100m under wind-assisted conditions for the fourth time in a row.

His previous wind-assisted performances include 9.86 seconds (+4.1 m/s) and 9.83w (+2.6 m/s) in Clermont and 9.89 seconds (+3.2 m/s) in Lubbock, Texas, in April.

In the heats, Asinga demonstrated his versatility by clocking a wind-legal personal best of 10.02 seconds (+1.2 m/s), securing his spot in the final.

Trailing behind Asinga were two other sprinters who dipped under the 10-second mark. Canada’s 4x100m world champion Aaron Brown claimed second place with a time of 9.91 seconds, while USA’s Kyree King finished third with a time of 9.97 seconds.

Despite being the top qualifier with a time of 9.93 seconds (+2.7 m/s) in the heats, Rikkoi Brathwaite from the British Virgin Islands did not participate in the final.

Asinga completed the sprint double when he clocked 20.20secs (+1.9 m/s) to win the 200m dash, beating 2009 world silver medalist Alonso Edward, who ran 20.54secs for second place.
