Tina Clayton secured a gold medal for Jamaica in the finals of the 100m race at the World Under-20 Championships at the Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium in Cali, Colombia on Wednesday.
Clayton dominated the tracks to build a sizable margin between herself and her opponents to secure the win with a new championship record of 10.95 seconds.
This impressive time by the 17-year-old athlete equals the same time clocked earlier today in the women’s 100m finals by Olympic champion, Elaine Thompson-Herah who secured a gold medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England.
In second place, Jamaica’s Serena Cole took home the silver medal with a time of 11.14 seconds, followed by American sprinter, Shawnti Jackson who won the bronze medal with a personal best of 11.15 seconds.
