World record progression 100 yard dash
The 100 yard dash is a track and field event of 100 yards or 91.44 metres. It was part of the Commonwealth Games until 1966, and was included in the decathlon of the Olympics, at least in 1904. It is not generally used in international events (having been replaced by the 100 metre sprint). However, it is still occasionally run in the United States in certain competitions.

Athletics at the 1956 Melbourne Summer Games: Men's 100 metres | Olympics at Sports-Reference.com
Medal Winners: Gold: Bobby Joe Morrow, Silver: Thane Baker, Bronze: Hec Hogan, Summary Early in 1956 the favorite for both sprints at Melbourne appeared to be American Dave Sime of Duke University. In April and May he ran 9.3 twice and 9.4 six times for 100 yards, and broke the world record for the 220 yard on the straight. At the NCAA Championships, Sime came against Bobby Joe Morrow of Abilene Christian College and Morrow defeated him in the 100. Then in the 200, Sime pulled a hamstring and would not even make it out of the US Olympic Trials because of the injury. At the Trials, Morrow won both the 100 and 200 and was a heavy favorite at Melbourne. His only major competition seemed to be his diminutive teammate Ira Murchison, who at the CISM (Conseil International du Sport Militaire) Championships in Berlin in August, had run 10.1 for a world record in both the semi-final and final. In the final he met and defeated Willie Williams, who had not made the Olympic team, but had also run a world record 10.1 in the opening round. At Melbourne, Morrow was the class of the field. He won every round of the 100 and 200, and anchored the Americans to a gold medal in the 4 x 100 relay. His times were not outstanding because all the sprint races in Melbourne were run into the wind, but the outcomes were never in doubt.
