Expect A World-Leading Time?

Her previous indoor appearance was eight-years ago when she ran 23.26 seconds at a meet in Blacksburg, Virginia. She owns an outdoor personal best of 21.74.

The 26-year-old Bahamian, it is understood, has been showing good signs in practice and is expected to go much faster than her current indoor personal best. She may very well improve the current world lead of 22.90 by USA’s Tamara Clark.
