By March 29, 2019

14-year-old Tina Clayton broke her twin sister Tia’s age group world record and with it won the gold medal in an electrifying Girls Class 3 100m dash at the ISSA Grace Kennedy Boys and Girls Championships at the National Stadium on Friday night.

The Edwin Allen rising star, exploded from the blocks and rocketed away from the field to cross the finish line in an incredible 11.27s. The time eclipse the 11.37s Tia set earlier this season and which was an age-group record for 14-year-olds.

Tia was second in 11.60s while St. Jago’s Briana Lyston was third in 11.61.

The race set the stage for another incredible run from Clayton’s teammate Kevona Davis, who was imperious in winning the Class 2 event in 11.17s, a season’s best and an under 18 world-lead.

Ackera Nugent of Excelsior was second in 11.42 while the bronze medal went to Campion College standout Krystal Sloley who stopped the clock in 11.48s.

Ashanti Moore of Hydel also produced another outstanding performance winning the Class 1 100m in 11.17s to finish ahead of Ockeria Myrie of Petersfield who clocked 11.51s.

Moore’s time was also a U20 world lead eclipsing Davis’ time and that of Tamari Davis’ 11.32 set earlier this month in Gainesville Florida.

In the Class 4 final, Sashauna Smith of Vere Technical High was a comfortable winner in 12.28. Abigail Wolfe of  Holy Childhood High won the silver in 12.39 while Toniann Bryan of Immaculate Conception was third in 12.40.
