Trayvon Jaquez Bromell is an American professional track and field athlete specialising in sprinting events. Bromell was the first junior to break the 10-second barrier in the 100 meters with a time of 9.97 seconds, the current junior world record. His personal best time in the 100m of 9.77 seconds makes him the 7th fastest man of all time. He is the 2016 world indoor 60 m champion and also competed for the United States at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
With the kind of form he has been, Bromell is the hot favourite to take away the 100m gold at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 and end America’s 17-year drought in this event at the Summer Games. His stakes get even higher when the legend himself, 8-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt has predicted that Bromell can surely be his successor. With so many expectations weighing on Trayvon Bromell, it becomes imperative to know all about the American athlete.
Trayvon Bromell’s Bio
Employed by New Balance, Bromell was born on July 10, 1995, in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA.

He turned professional in 2015, and since then has represented the US in various events such as 60m, 100m, 200m, and 4x100m relay across the globe.
Trayvon Bromell’s Net Worth

Trayvon Bromell’s Coach
Bromell was coached by Mike Ford from 2013. However, in 2019, he ended his long-term alliance with Ford to join hands with Rana Reider. It has paid dividends as Bromell, as predicted by many pundits, may well be the new 100m champion in Tokyo.
Trayvon Bromell’s Parents
Bromell comes from a family of former athletes. His father, Cashmere, played football in the Canadian League while his mother, Shri Sanders, was a former high school sprinter. However, Bromell lost his father after he suffered a heart attack while in the hospital in 2014.
Despite his not-so-favorable build, Bromell is a huge favourite to win at the quadrennial extravaganza and it would be a huge disappointment if he returns with anything less than gold. All of America’s hopes are pinned on Bromell to bring back the crown after Justin Gatlin was the last American who won the 100m Olympic gold at the 2004 Summer Games held in Athens, and Bromell is ready to rise on the expectations.
