The Future of Fast :

Sprint phenom Trayvon Bromell joins #TeamNB

How fast can the human body run?

It’s a simple question, but one that sprint phenom and the newest member of the New Balance Family Trayvon Bromell has obsessed over since the day he first started running. Since then, he has poured everything he has into finding out the answer and along the way, has smashed every record in his path.

At just 20-years-old, Bromell’s track dominance has established the Florida native as one of the top sprinters in the world. As the world junior 100m record holder and the first high school athlete to break ten seconds in the event, Trayvon’s success has accelerated at an unimaginable pace. 

“My goal is always to be better than I was yesterday.” Trayvon Bromell

This past summer, Trayvon rewrote history when he ran 9.84 seconds at the U.S. Championships in Eugene, Oregon, becoming the first U.S. teenager to qualify for the World Championships in the 100m. He then followed that up by becoming the youngest athlete ever to medal in the 100m at the World Championships, running 9.92 to claim the bronze medal.

Even after his monster year in 2015, Trayvon is still hungry. That hunger is stoked every time he looks down at his arm and sees the letters “I-W-N-S” tattooed on his arm, which stand for “I will never stop.”

So…how fast can the human body run?

Trayvon is about to show us all. And he’ll wear NB spikes when he does.
