The world's fastest sprinter in the 1960's was James Raymond Hines of Texas Southern University. In a span of five months, he participated in three world records and won two Olympic Gold Medals. Hines was the first runner to break the 10-second barrier in the 100 meters. His world record 9.99 won at the AAU Nationals on June 20, 1968, in Sacramento. On October 14 in Mexico City, he clocked an electrifying 9.95 to win the Olympics. Hines' second Gold came in the 4x100 meter relay as the USA set a world record 38.2 seconds. Both world marks stood the test of time: Hines' 100 for 20 years, the relay for 16. As a junior under Coach Stan Wright at TSU in 1967, he tied Jesse Owens' world record of 9.1 in the 100-yard dash. Hines was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1994.
