World 100 metre silver medalist Christian Coleman opened his 2018 campaign by breaking the 60 meter indoor world record with a time of 6.37sec. The American set the new mark at the low-level Clemson Invitational track meet to surpass the previous record of 6.39sec held by fellow American Maurice Greene.

Greene ran the time twice, in 1998 in Madrid, Spain, and 2001 in Atlanta, Georgia. Coleman's previous best was 6.45sec at last year's US collegiate indoor championships.
