Setting a world record is quite easy. You just need to win enough gold medals in other events to unlock the skill boosts for sprinting.

Annoyingly, if you break the record it stays set across all careers. So after beating the game as the UK team, I had to delete my save to pick Jamaica.

When you have the skill boosts, breaking the record on this event is pretty easy. Start holding LT about half a second after READY.... STEADY.... and release it when the bar gets full. If you get a perfect start and then waggle that right stick (go for a tight, minimalist motion) you should break the record easily. I got 9:47 and wasn't even going all out.
