The 1992 season started very promisingly for Cason as he set the world indoor record for 60 metres on three different occasions, leaving a standing World Record time of 6.41, and equaling the World Indoor Record for 50 metres with a time of 5.62. Cason kept his excellent form until the early summer. However, at the 1992 US Olympic Trials he suffered a career threatening injury with a torn Achilles tendon, and was out for the rest of the season.

In 1993 Cason won the 100 m at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon and won a silver medal over 100 m at the 1993 World Championships in Athletics in Stuttgart, running in 9.92 s. In the 4×100 m relay he was a member of the US team that tied the world record at 37.40 s in the semi-finals, and won the gold in the final with 37.48 s.
