Christopher Lemaitre is a 20-year-old sprinter you’ve probably never heard of. He ran a 9.98 in the 100 meter dash at the French National Championships last month, which set a record, and prompted online chatter about Lemaitre being the first white man to break the 10-second barrier. (His 9.98 bested times of Asafa Powell and Tyson Gay when they were 20.) Naturally, race has become a bigger issue than Lemaitre’s time: “Talking about white sprinters, I find this absurd … This story is too much, I don’t like it,” he said. [Guardian]
