11.63 seconds 1st! China's 15-year-old women's 100-meter talent was born: Ge Manqi, the super Asian Games champion in the preliminaries
On November 8, Beijing time, the first session of the Youth Association held the preliminaries of various groups of women. In the preliminaries of the girls' middle school group, Chen Yujie, a 15-year-old genius girl, ran 11.63 seconds and easily ranked first. It is worth mentioning that Chen Yujie's results surpassed the first place in the preliminaries of Group A and Group B of Women's University.
In the 100-meter preliminaries of Group A of the Women's University, Li Dan ran 11.88 seconds and ranked first in the preliminaries. In the women's college group B 100m preliminaries, Ge Manqi ranked first in 11.79 seconds. Asian Games champion Ge Manqi wore trousers in the preliminaries and slowed down in the second half of the race. In this event, the famous players of other national teams did not participate, and Ge Manqi's strength can be said to be far ahead, so she is only equivalent to a training run in the preliminaries.
However, Ge Manqi's preliminaries "released water" made Chen Yujie's prestige. The 15-year-old Chen Yujie's preliminaries surpassed Ge Manqi. Chen Yujie's preliminaries reached the national level.
Chen Yujie rose to prominence in 2023 when she won the women's 14-15 age group 100m and 200m at the Zhejiang Junior Athletics Championships in April. Then in the women's 100m final of the U15 World Student Games in August, Chen Yujie won the championship with a time of 11.56 seconds, which tied the record of the International School Sports Federation (ISF) under 18 since 1982.
Chen Yujie has become a superstar in the Chinese women's 100m, and at the age of 15, she has great potential. You must know that Ge Manqi and Wei Yongli do not have such strength at this age. Ge Manqi participated in the women's 100m race at the 2013 Asian Youth Games, and the 16-year-old won the championship in 11.91 seconds, but this result is much worse than Chen Yujie.
In 2016, Ge Manqi was 19 years old and participated in the National Track and Field Grand Prix, running a time of 11.64 seconds, which was not as strong as Chen Yujie's performance in the preliminaries of the Youth Association. Of course, Ge Manqi continued to improve, and she won the gold medal in 11.23 seconds at this year's Asian Games in Hangzhou.
Now Chen Yujie's time is stable at around 11.60 seconds. It is worth mentioning that Chen Yujie's parents are both sprinters, and it can be said that she inherited her parents' athletic talent. Chen Yujie is now in junior high school in Ningbo, while training at Ningbo Sports School. In the future, Chen Yujie may be able to compete in the world competition.
