This was considered another
“impossible” achievement, but Jim
Hines’ record time of 9.9sec that he
set on 20 June 1968 in California,
USA, stood for 15 years. The
women’s world record has stoodt
10.49sec since 1988, achieved by
Florence Griffith-Joyner.

After these successes, Hines was a 6th round pick in the 1968 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, an American football team. Hines did not have the football skills to match his speed and spent the 1968 season on the practice squad. He was given the nickname “Oops” due to his lack of football skill. He appeared in 10 games with Miami in 1969 catching two passes for 23 yards, rushed the ball one time for seven yards and returned one kickoff for 22 yards. Hines then appeared in one game with the Kansas City Chiefs in 1970. He never played pro football again. He has one of the top 100 meter times by NFL players. Hines was ranked the 10th worst NFL player of all time by Deadspin writer Jeff Pearlman.
