watch Zohri, who finished in 10.18, or speed 1.2 meter per second, defeated the US duo Anthony Schwartz and Eric Harrison who finished in 10.22 and 10.22 respectively.
“In the 32-year-history of the IAAF World U20 Championships, the best performance by an Indonesian athlete was an eighth-place finish in the 100-meter heats at the inaugural edition in 1986, but that all changed here tonight,” IAAF said.
Zohri won Asian U20 championship early this year which brought him to the larger scope competition.
The sprinter’s next performance will be with Indonesia’s delegation in Asian Games in August.
“Now, I will prepare for the Asian Games next month. I’m so proud – this was an amazing experience and this is great for my career,” said the athlete, as cited from the IAAF’s website.
