China’s leading sprinter Su Bingtian seems to be peaking at the right time with the Tokyo Games fast approaching. The 31-year-old registered 9.98 seconds, the fifth fastest 100-metre time in the world this year, as he streamed to victory at an invitational run in the southern city of Zhaoqing on Saturday. It was Su’s quickest run since he won Asian Games gold in Jakarta in 2018. “To be honest, I did not run very well today,” Su said. “The start was good but in the latter part [of the race] my body was a little tense. But the result is satisfactory. After all, it has been quite a long time since my last sub-10 second-performance.” Tokyo 2020 Sun Yang to return at China nationals on April 30 - reports Su clocked 10.05 in a race last month and went 10.16 seconds in an earlier preliminary race on Saturday.
