American youngster Quincy Wilson reacts after beating Usain Bolt's 400m record

Quincy Wilson has reacted after beating Usain Bolt's and Kirani James' records in the 400m.

American youngster Quincy Wilson has reacted after his scintillating run in the 400m at the Bullis Track sophomore where he was opening his outdoor season.

Wilson stopped the clock in an impressive Personal Best time of 45.19 to cross the finish line first. The time he clocked placed him in the books of records as a 16-year-old where he surpassed the times the fastest man in the world Usain Bolt ran when he was the same age.

Wilson also beat former Olympic champion Kirani James’ record of the times he would run when he was the same age. At 16, Bolt’s Personal Best time was 45.35 while James had a Personal Best time of 45.24.

“I feel great…I feel like I executed the race pretty well but there are a lot of things that I have to work on. Coming up from one week of training since the indoor, I feel pretty good.

“It’s feeling great coming out here and trying to stay healthy until the end of the season because it’s a long season. I just want to stay healthy and be able to keep getting ready for my craft and things like that and just keep working hard towards the goal,” Wilson said.

He added that this season, he will be targeting the Olympic Games in Paris, France where he intends to make an impact.

“I also want to be able to just run a great race and remain thankful for what I’m able to do. I’ve been watching all those races, studying them, and breaking them down from 50m to 100m…I learn how to execute my race from those videos.

“I don’t really know where I’ll be racing next and I just want to go week by week learning different things and just executing so you never know. I just want to accept the challenge and go with it,” he added.
