KINGSTON, Jamaica – Kevona Davis of Edwin Allen smashed her own Class Two record for the girls 200m on Day 5 at Champs 2018 on Saturday at the National Stadium in Kingston.

Davis hammered the track in a blistering 22.72 seconds (+0.8 m/s) to shatter her own record of 22.92 secs, which she set two days ago in the semi-finals.

The 16-year-old, who also broke the 100m record twice, including the stunning 11.16 seconds to win the 100m final on Friday night, has now produced the fastest time in the world for her age group.
