Jamaica’s sprint hurdles queen Brigitte Foster-Hylton has come out in praise of Janeek Brown, who broke her 16-year-old national record on Saturday.

At the start of the season Kansas State University triple jumper, Shardia Lawrence set a target of achieving a mark of 14 metres by season’s end. She fell one centimetre short, but it was good enough to win the 2019 NCAA Division 1 title in Texas on Saturday.

Coach Chris Johnson believes Janeek Brown could have gone faster when she won her NCAA sprint hurdles title on the weekend and that she will definitely go faster in the future.

Jamaica’s Janeek Brown is now the fastest woman over the 100 metres hurdles this year and the quickest her country has ever seen. 

Following the successful defence of his NCAA javelin title on Wednesday, Anderson Peters said he is closer to achieving his goals this season and plans to be on the podium at the IAAF World Championships in Doha in September.
