About
Charles Silmon broke the 10-second barrier in the 100m to join the exclusive group of men to do so at the 2013 USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Following a full collegiate season at Texas Christian, his third place finish garnered him a spot on Team USA for the World Outdoor Championships. He showed his versatility weeks later and his ability at the professional level in being a part of the winning 4x100m relay at the Monaco Diamond League meet. A successful sprinter from a young age, Silmon’s career includes a World Junior Championships gold medal, a NACAC U-23 gold medal and an NCAA Outdoor 100m title. His collegiate career includes 12 conference titles between the Mountain West Conference and the Big 12 Conference, which TCU joined before his senior season.
