Christian Coleman won the men's 60m at the Clemson Invitational with a 6.37 WR, almost 20 years after Maurice Greene did his 6.39 in Madrid.

For what it's worth, that record lasted longer than MJ's outdoor 400.

The project is led by Mo Farah's former coach Alberto Salazar, who is being probed by the US Anti-Doping Agency.

Interesting, there.
