Athletics (U20)


Jamaican sprint hurdler Damion Thomas equaled the Men 110m hurdles U20 World Junior Record a short while ago at the Jamaica National Championships inside the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.

The LSU freshman broke 13 seconds for the first time posting 12.99 seconds (WIND: -0.3mps) to win the national title equaling the mark set by France’s Wilhem Belocian in 2014. 

The US-born Jamaican also lowered the Jamaican national junior record of 13.06 set by Tyler Mason in 2014 to beat a strong field.

Thomas, the NCAA Outdoor Championships bronze medalist, edged Calabar High School’s Orlando Bennett, who also went below the previous national record with a new personal best 13.00. Bennet’s teammate Dejour Russell, the 2017 World Youth Champion finished third in 13.26.

The 18-year now turns his attention to the IAAF World U20 Championships in Tampere, Finland.

More to come….
