    Budd 9.36 6/24/61 NYC
    Hayes 9.35 6/22/62 Walnut

    (then Hayes 9.40 6/21/63 St. Louis)

    then
    Greene 9.23a 6/15/67 Provo
    Greene 9.21a 6/16/67 Provo

    Which brings up the obvious question: why not get a time at 100y the next time CC races and get a new WR?!
    In Bolt's 9.58, he passed 100y right around 8.87, so CC would 'only' need mid-9.80s to break the record.

    Intermediate times have been taken for a few years at the Ostrava meet, with Asafa Powell running 9.07 [during a 9.83 100m] - he also ran 9.10/9.85 in a heat at the same meet, while Gatlin, in 2014, ran 9.10/9.86 at that meet.

    Update on Boling - Junior PanAms - 4 golds: 10.11 (legal) and also whittles down on his best, 20.3 (less impressive), mid 44s on relay. Note, the 10.11 moves him ahead of Little.
    Stay tuned!
