'Kiryu Clocks Wind-Assisted 9.87 in 100 m at Texas Relays'

After the race Kiryu posted the following Tweet:


This was my first 100 m race in 8 months.  The wind was a 3.3 m/s tailwind so the time wasn't legal, but I still ran 9.87, my first time achieving a 9-second time.  The time was good, but what was even better was that running against 9-second athletes I was competitive and beat them for the win.  This was just the first race of the season and I want to keep going this year without injury.  This was a great meet.  :-)
