How the world records were shattered

Men's 100 metres world record progression:


Bolt

The first record in the 100 metres for men (athletics) was recognized by the International Amateur Athletics Federation, now known as the International Association of Athletics Federations, in 1912.


Asafa Powell

(Starting January 1, 1977, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) required fully automatic timing to the hundredth of a second for these events. Jim Hines' October 1968 Olympic gold medal run was the fastest recorded fully electronic 100 metre race to that time, at 9.95.

Track and Field News has compiled an unofficial list of automatically timed records starting with the 1964 Olympics and Bob Hayes' gold medal performance there.)
