Trinidad and Tobago sprinter, Michelle Lee Ahye, clocked a season’s best in the women’s 60m to close her indoor season at the Millrose Games in New York on Saturday.

Ahye clocked 7.15, which was good enough for second place behind a resurgent English Gardner of the United States.  Gardner got off to a good start and powered to the line in 7.10, which was a new personal best and the second fastest time in the world this year.  The American is looking to get back to her best after two ACL surgeries.

For Ahye, the result beat her previous best time of 7.21 set at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix last month but obviously did not come with the gold medal the Trinidadian won on that occasion.

 On Saturday, Javianne Oliver, another American, was third behind Ahye with a time of 7.19.

Ahye, the 2018 Commonwealth Games champion, is the fastest Caribbean woman over the distance this year.  The next closest of Jamaica’s Remona Burchell who has a best of 7.23 set in Poland earlier this month.  The fastest time recorded over the distance this year was set by Poland’s Ewa Swoboda who recorded 7.08 in Karlsruhe Germany earlier this month
