Fred Kerley is hopeful of achieving more historic feats after leading a clean sweep for the United States in the men's 100 metres at the World Athletics Championships.

The 27-year-old, who dropped down from 400m to 100m last year, powered past Marvin Bracy-Williams and Trayvon Bromell late on to claim gold in a time of 9.86 seconds.

With Bracy-Williams and Bromell taking silver and bronze respectively, it is the first time any nation has won all three medals in the world 100m since USA themselves in 1991.

After adding to the 100m Olympic silver won in Tokyo last year and the 400m world bronze from 2019, Kerley believes there is still more to come.

"I know today opened up many doors for me," he said. "The future is bright for me.

"It's amazing to be among the greats. They did it in 1991, we did in 2022. It's history. To be part of something that has only happened three times just means the world to me."

Bracy-Williams and Bromell clocked a time of 9.88 in Oregon to finish just behind Kerley in front of a full crowd in the first World Championships held in the USA.

"It's a wonderful blessing to get a clean sweep," Kerley added. "I feel we can dominate again at next year's World Championships [in Budapest].

"We all put the work in, come back home and return again next year. This win means I can do 100m, 200m and 400m. I've got a medal in 400m and 100m."
