The 18-year-old, who competes for Strake Jesuit College Prep in Houston, stormed to the astonishing triumph at Texas' Region III-6A track and field event.

Boling's remarkable time will not break the official 100m high school dash record because he benefited from a 4.2mph tailwind, according to Yahoo, so Trentavis Friday keeps his 10-second flat mark set in North Carolina in 2014. But the record will at least remain as the fastest sprint in any condition in high school.

Oh, and he also won the long jump with an impressive mark of 25 feet and 2 inches (7.67m).

The teenager nicknamed 'White Lightning' will certainly count it as a personal best, however, and he was delighted to have posted the fastest 100m time of any American under the age of 20.

"It definitely felt good," Boling told the Houston Chronicle. "My block start was pretty good and right out of the gate I knew it was going to be fast, so I decided to turn it up a little bit and ran my best. I was really happy with the time."

Boling, whose previous personal best was clocked at 10.22 seconds in March, has also recorded 20.58 seconds in the 200m.

He is now planning to attend the University of Georgia and qualify for the US team for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Usain Bolt currently holds the world record for both the 100m and 200m with times of 9.58 seconds and 19.19 seconds respectively.
