Description:
Lerone Ephraime Clarke (born 7 July 1981) is a Jamaican sprint who is the 2010 Commonwealth Games champion in the 100 metres.

Like current Olympic 100m champion Usain Bolt and former Jamaican Sprinter Michael Green , Clarke is a former student of William Knibb Memorial High School.

He finished fourth in 4 x 100 m relay at the 2005 World Championships, together with teammates Dwight Thomas, Ainsley Waugh and Michael Frater.

He set a personal best time of 9.99 seconds on 28 August 2009 in Zürich, Switzerland, becoming the 70th man to have broken the 10-second barrier with an official, legal time. Following this he set a meeting record at Rovereto, Italy, recording 10.11 seconds into a headwind to beat Asafa Powell's previous meet best.Sampaolo, Diego (2009-09-02). . IAAF. Retrieved on 2009-09-04. With the top Jamaican sprinters opting out of the 2010 Commonwealth Games, Clarke was selected to represent his country in the 100 m. He had a fast start in the final and held his lead to win the gold medal, succeeding Asafa Powell as the Commonwealth champion for the event. However, the lack of top athletes was evident from his 10.12-second winning time – the slowest to win the title since Don Quarrie in 1974.. Reuters (2010-10-07). Retrieved on 2010-10-07.
