World 200m silver medallist Wallace Spearmon has become the third fastest man in history, running the half lap in 19.65 seconds in front of a crowd of nearly 50,000 spectators at the Colorful 2006 Daegu Athletics Meeting, in Daegu, Korea, earlier today.
Spearmon who had reduced his 19.89 personal best (London, 22 July 05) at his last two meetings – 19.88 Stuttgart (10 Sep 06) and 19.87 (17 Sep 06) – when respectively coming second at the World Athletics Final and then taking victory at the World Cup, is now only headed on the all-time list by USA compatriots Michael Johnson (19.32 – World record, 1996) and Xavier Carter (19.63).
