Sherman Oaks Notre Dame sprinter Khalfani Muhammad is the reigning CIF state champion in the 100m and 200m. His title defense in 2013, to this point, hasnt been very challenging. Hes looking for competition. He wants it. In fact, he welcomes it and believes its on its way in the form of the CIF Southern Section Masters meet this Friday at Cerritos College, which will be streamed live on FOXSportsWest.com starting at 5:30 p.m. Its been over a year since Muhammad finished anything less than first place at a meet in the 100m and even longer since he did so in the 200m. Last week in taking the CIF Southern Section Division III title in the 100m, he ran a wind-aided PR 10.33. After the race, he said he didnt run his best race. It wasnt the best block start I ever had but I have to take it for now and just progress to next week and hopefully come out with a better result, Muhammad said. He also ran a 20.84 in the 200m to capture the Division III title the third fastest time in the nation. (The) 200 was a great race, Muhammad said. I wish I had somebody there to push me a little bit. I know this Friday Im going to get a lot of competition and Im going to really see where Im at but you got to love it. 20.8, running by yourself shows a lot. You could say it shows the heart of a champion. You could back it up by saying Khalfani Muhammads biggest opponent so far this season has been, well, Khalfani Muhammad. Still he continues to have one goal in mind: to win state. His quest to repeat is as strong as ever and he wants to continue to carry the torch. The likes of Randall Carroll and Remontay McClain were both state champions in the 100m and 200m coming out of Division III. I just want to get out there and represent and continue (the tradition) on, Muhammad said. The next step is this week at the Masters where he expects to make a loud statement. Im not just looking to win," Muhammad said, "I want to destroy everybody pretty much and make sure they dont have any hope going into the state meet that they can beat me.
