Christian Coleman has enjoyed a spectacular sophomore season at the University of Tennessee. Coleman was named a 2016 USTFCCCA Indoor Track & Field First Team All-American for the 60m, 200m, and 4x400m relay and captured the 200m national title. He was the 2016 SEC Indoor Champion in the 60m and garnered league runner-up honors in the 200m and 4x400m. Coleman earned the 2016 SEC Men’s Runner of the Year Award and USTFCCCA South Regional Athlete of the Year accolades. He set a 60m PR of 6.52 at the NCAA Championships, good for second-best in Tennessee history, and his PR of 20.54 in the 200m at SEC Championships ranks fourth. Coleman opened his 2016 outdoor season with a 10.16 time in the 100m at the Florida Relays, good for the fourth best mark in the nation. That 10.16 was also an IAAF Rio 2016 Olympic Games A entry standard and a U.S. Trials standard.
