Grenada's Kirani James runs 45.24 to break World Youth CR

K_jamesGrenada’s young quarter-mile star Kirani James clocked a superb personal best of 45.24seconds to win the boys’ 400 metres and set a new World Youth Championships record in process. He, however, missed the World Youth record of 45.14sec, set by American Obea Moore in 1979.

"I am a little bit disappointed to have missed the World Youth best. I thank my coach with whom I prepared these Championships," James said afterwards.

"This is already my third medal after having won silver in Ostrava 2 years ago when I was 14 years old."
