“Perfect Timing for Early April!”: Kenny Bednarek Defeats Fellow USA Teammate Christian Coleman in 200M at Miramar Invitational Leaving Fans in Frenzy

Not many athletes showed up at the Miramar Invitational this season, but that didn’t stop it from being a smashing success. Team USA’s Christian Coleman and Kenny Bednarek’s titanic 200-meter sprint race was the highlight of the men’s division. In the championship, Bednarek emerged victorious in the sprint and later published the race footage on his X account.

The athletes were queueing up in the grid in the viral X post. There were eight competitors on the starting line, but Coleman and Bednarek were head and shoulders above the others. Both athletes showed incredible speed and form from the starting point and had passed the whole grid by the time they reached the turn of the racetrack.

Nonetheless, Coleman and Bednarek engaged in a speed war, with the Olympic silver medalist posing a formidable challenge to his compatriot. Even with his best efforts, Coleman couldn’t keep up with Bednarek’s pace. When they crossed the finish line at the Ansin Sports Complex, a thin 0.08-second mark separated them.

With a time of 20.35 seconds, Kenny Bednarek took first place, while Coleman finished in second place with a time of 20.43 seconds. Bednark also detailed the race in his X post, saying:

“Won my Season Opener in the 200m today with 20.35s (-2.8) at the Miramar Invitational. My headband flew out halfway.”

The competitors proved to the fans that they were of Olympic caliber despite the challenging track conditions. This fan shared a sarcastic remark, which also amused the athlete.

Maintaining a constant state of confidence is no easy piece of work for a professional athlete. But Kenny Bednarek is enjoying a successful season leading up to the Paris Olympics. At the UCF Knights Invite, he won the 400-meter event to kick off his 2024 season. The athlete, however, had to settle for bronze in the Pepsi Florida Relays, which he attended a week later.

He has been keeping his supporters informed and ready for the big year ahead, by attending track meetings in consecutive weeks. In preparation for the Miramar Invitational, the track star posted photos of himself undergoing physical therapy on social media.
