Biographie

James Ray HINES

Coached at Texas Southern by former Olympic champion, Bobby Morrow, Jim Hines made track history at the 1968 AAU when he became the first man to better 10 seconds for 100m. He clocked a windy 9.8 that day in the heats, but had a legal 9.9 in the semis before losing the final to Charlie Greene, both runners recording a windy 10.0. In Mexico, Hines won the gold medal in 9.95 which was a world record for automatic timing. In the relay Hines took the baton in third place, but ran an outstanding anchor leg to give the U.S. a victory and another world record. After the 1968 Olympic season, Hines turned professional and had a brief career in pro football with the Miami Dolphins.

Personal Bests: 100 – 9.95 (1968); 220y – 20.71 (1967).
