KINGSTON, Jamaica – Sprint prodigy Christopher Taylor of Calabar smashed another record at the 2016 Boys and Girls’ Championships on Day three on Thursday night.
Taylor, who earlier took down the Class 2 boys’ 400m record, added the 200m record to that list after posting a time of 20.80 seconds when winning his semi-final.
His outstanding run lowered the previous mark of 20.89 seconds, set by former Calabar sprinter Ramone McKenzie in 2007.
Taylor, clearly hunting the record, came off the corner and kept going as he powered cross the finishing line with his new mark.
Meanwhile, his fellow teammate Dejour Russell also looked in good form when winning his semi-final with a time of 21.08 secs.
The final of the 200m will be on Saturday.
Look out for another fast time from both Calabar sprinters.
