Bershawn Jackson Jr. Runs Age 10 World No. 2 All-Time 60m

Bershawn Jackson Jr., brother of Shawnti Jackson and son of "Batman" Jackson, ran the 2nd fastest 60m dash all-time for Age 10 and under this weekend at The VA Showcase. 

Jackson Jr. ran in the "Fastest Kid" 60m dash challenge Saturday in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and he blew away expectations. The 10-year-old product who represents RDU Xpress became the 2nd age 10 athlete in history to break 8.00. He ran 7.99, and missed the age 10 world record by just one-hundredth of a second.

Paul Lucas set the age 10 record of 7.98 in 2008 before going on to compete for Oregon State and Arizona State University. 

This is only the start for Jackson Jr., who had only been training for a few days before The VA Showcase. He has shown time and time again, however, that he is an elite multi-sport athlete. 

This summer at AAU Club Championships in Florida, Jackson broke 25.00, clocking 24.97 to set a new age-group world record.

Also this summer, at 2022 AAU Junior Olympics in August, Jackson Jr. won the Age 10 100m and 200m national championships. In total on the track circuit, Jackson Jr. is a 10-time national champion. 

Jackson Jr. will be turning 11 before the outdoor season gets underway.
