Fred kerley was awarded the gold, and Marvin Bracy Williams and Trayvon Bromell followed him Fred Kerley didn’t know he was the fastest man on the planet when he crossed Hayward Field’s finish line Saturday night. He had to wait and see, as he did with so many other things in his life.

Three runners from the United States had completed the 100-meter sprint at the track and fields world championships men’s race within a fraction of each other, creating a frenzy of speed as the sun set on the stadium.

Kerley, dressed in a red-and-blue speed suit, sat down and studied a computer screen. Only when the No. He knew he had won the gold medal when the No.

Kerley, a 400-meter specialist who was not awaited any of these — gold medals, world championships, acclaim — raised his arms when the final results were post.

They revealed a sweep of medals for the Americans with Trayvon Bromell finishing in third and Marvin Bracy–Williams coming in second. In an unscripted episode of joy, Bracy-Williams took on Bromell, his trainer.

Bromell stated, “I don’t know what went through Marvin’s head.” “It’s the emotion.”

Lamont Marcell Jacobs, an Italian Olympic champion, resigned from the competition just before Saturday’s semifinal heat. Jacobs was said be suffering from a muscle injury.

Fred kerley: Jacobs tweeted, “I am forced stop.”

Kerley, who is usually a passive athlete, let his emotions out after his win. Kerley was thinking about Virginia Kerley, his aunt who was back in Texas, and likely “blowing his phone,” he stated.

He was 2 years old when he was born to her and several of his siblings. According to Spikes magazine’s first-person account, Fred’s mother and father were in prison. Virginia Kerley was a mother to 13 children at one time.

Kerley stated that “if it weren’t for her”, she wouldn’t be speaking to you now. “She sacrificed her life to save me, my brothers, my sisters, and my cousins.”

Fred kerley: He said, “I’m grateful for her putting me in a place to win in my life.”

Kerley, a graduate of Taylor High School in Austin, was not a top-flight candidate. Kerley landed at South Plains College, Levelland, Texas.

He suffered a hamstring injury in his freshman year and was a mere 11th in the 400m at the junior college national championships. Chris Beene, his former South Plains coach, said that he worked hard and never complained.

Beene, who is now the head girls’ track & field coach at Anna High School in Dallas, said that “he was always a great friend.” “I mean, he would willingly die on the track in 4×400 for the team,” said Beene.

Kerley’s talents emerged with more training. He was N.C.A.A. champion at Texas A&M. He was the N.C.A.A.A. champion in the 400m in 2017. He was also the bronze medalist at the 2017 world championships.

Although his future seemed to be in the 400m, he started to look at the shorter sprints as a way to get around the pandemic. Kerley stated that he was trying to get back to his roots as a long jumper and sprinter. Kerley said, “I’m just back at my playground.”

His unusual decision was met with a lot of excitement by the track world. It isn’t easy to switch from the 400 to 100. But it is not as simple as putting down your steeplechase spikes to take up the hammer throw.

The 100 requires new skills and a different approach to training. Few athletes are world-class in both of these disciplines.

Kerley won the silver medal in 100m at the Tokyo Olympics last summer, which was a vindication of his decision. He has continued to improve.

He ran 9.76 seconds in his semifinal heat at the U.S. championships, which was the third fastest time by an American. Then he dominated a deep field in final to win the title in 9.77 secs less than two hours.

Kerley, on the other hand, prefers to keep his thoughts to him. He flew past reporters after he won his first round heat on Friday.

(It wasn’t immediately obvious to anyone what Kerley had actually said the last time. After much detective work, the gumshoes at FloTrack discovered that Kerley had stated, “You’ll be able to see.”

Bracy-Williams stated that Kerley was more talkative and playful around friends and other athletes.

Bracy-Williams stated that he is not as stone-faced, contrary to popular belief. He’s a great guy. He’s all business when he comes out.

Kerley’s competitive streak goes beyond the track. He played cornhole with Bracy Williams on Thursday and treated it as an Olympic final. Kerley will compete in any event.

Bracy-Williams stated, “Even though it’s water to drink,” “So you have to be with it.”

Kerley seems to be interested in one topic when it comes time to speak publicly. It is the topic of those who doubted Kerley’s ability to run 100m. We don’t know how many of these people actually exist. Kerley, however, has used them to fuel his dreams and real life.

Kerley stated that he will race in the 200m this week and be available to relay in both the 4×100-meter– and 4×400-meter races in the future. (Stay tuned. Or, as he likes it to say, “You will see.”

He knows being the world champion in 100m will make a huge difference to his life.

He said that he would do the 400 again in a few months
