In the men's 100-meter flying race at the Chongqing National Athletics Grand Prix, China's Xie Zhenye won the championship in 10.05 seconds. But in the game, a young and familiar face once again caused netizens to sigh! He is Wu Haolin from Guangzhou, Guangdong Province.
In this competition, 16-year-old Wu Haolin appeared at the scene of the competition with more expectations. In the men's 100m semifinals, Wu Haolin set a personal best time again in 10.44 seconds to advance to the final. In the final, Wu Haolin set another good result, finishing fifth in 10.42 seconds, while also improving his best time again.

At the recently concluded National Junior Championships, Wu Haolin ran into the 10.50 seconds mark in the preliminaries, semifinals and finals. He won the final in 10.46 seconds. While refreshing his personal best, he also broke the national record of 43 years, it is worth mentioning that at the same age, even Su Bingtian did not do it.
