He set the first regular electric sub-10"
100m at the birthplace of Olympism.
Who was this pocket-sprinter?

If you mean Athens, the answer appears to be Mel Lattany (USA) back in May 1984.

<Olympics did not start in Athens though but in Olympia.>

Well, if the original question meant Olympia, then the sprinter really was pocket-sized (microscopic) and has escaped detection - i.e. no sub 10.00 runs at Olympia so far.
