Amazing that after all these years of training there has never been a Japanese 100 meter specialist that has been able to break the 10 second mark. I wonder why?

That's because being the fastest runner in Japan doesn't mean much, while you can make good money by being the 50th best baseball player so there is not much motivation to excel in track and field.

Good luck to him though !

If that's the case then why does anyone do it? (That's a rhetorical question)

The women's world record is 10.5, this boy ran 10.01, which shows how female athletes are not even capable of beating or equaling boys how haven't finished puberty yet. These women have the gall to demand equal status to male athletes.

That's because the Japanese don't have the genetics for speed. Blacks rule the 100 meters.
