Trayvon Bromell, who hails from St Petersburg, Florida, won the bronze medal at the 2015 world championships at the age of 20 just behind Usain Bolt — largely considered the greatest sprinter of all time and a world record holder in the 100 meters, 200 meters, and 4 × 100 meters relay. He was touted as the next fastest man. Then, Bromell finished last in the Rio Olympic Games’ 100 meters final. He also barely raced over the next three years due to an Achilles injury that required multiple surgeries.

But Bromell did not remain knocked down. In June, he ran 9.77 seconds, making him the seventh fastest man in history and the instant favorite for Tokyo. Usain Bolt’s retirement in 2017 has opened the doors for Bromell to be his successor. And Bromell looks promising in his attempts to fill his shoes.

“This Olympics is important to me but not for the same reasons as other athletes,” he told the Guardian earlier this month. “A lot of people want a gold medal. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I don’t. But my biggest purpose is change. I just want to give hope. I want kids to see me, and see that they could do it too.”

“I grew up with no eyes watching me,” he further said. “People weren’t there when I struggled. People weren’t there when me and my mom could barely pay the bills. And when we didn’t know whether we were going to have a house over our heads there were no eyes on me. So now when I run, it doesn’t factor for me. It’s the same 100 meters.”

“That gold medal will definitely be a great accomplishment,” he said. “But the real gold medal is the change that is going to bring. Because people will see like, dang, he went rock-bottom. He didn’t give up. He kept pushing. He made it back to the pinnacle of the sport. And won. This is what I’m trying to show kids across the globe, that all odds can be against you. That doesn’t mean you stop fighting.”

“I broke all these bones,” he said. “I’ve had all these injuries that most will probably never come back from. I’ve met with many doctors, more than any one athlete should have to meet. And they all came back with the same result: ‘You won’t run fast.’ I’ve been hearing that since I was in eighth grade when I broke my knee the first time: ‘Sorry, sir, you will never run fast.’ I came back, ran fast. Broke other knee. Came back, ran fast. Broke my hip doing track and field. Came back. Ran fast. And then the two achilles surgeries. But... 9.77.”

Who is Trayvon Bromell dating?

As per one website, CelebsCouples, Bromell is single and is not dating anyone currently. He had at least one relationship in the past, the website stated. 
On Twitter, over the years, he’s avoided questions on this topic. Answering the question, “Do you have a girlfriend?” Bromell once only said, “Haha”. When someone asked him, “Who's going to be your new girlfriend?” he said “Idk.”



 



 

However, in one now-deleted 2016 tweet, he said, “I swear when I get a girlfriend she traveling the world with me to every track meet.” He also once tweeted the same year, “I feel like some girls be forcing themselves to like football players… Majority don’t even know anything about sports in general.”



 

Earlier this year, the sprinter tweeted, “Why do we ask of things from people and not have the same expectations for ourselves? She wants a man with a good-paying job and He wants a girl to hold her own. But neither have this for themselves. The same expectation you have for someone else, have them for yourself gang!” This, of course, may just have been a general observation. 



 

At the moment, even if he’s dating someone, he has not made it public. His Instagram does not feature a partner the way several other athletes' do.
