Watch Video: Shaunae Miller-Uibo Running World-Leading 22.40: American Track League Meeting #2

Watch video highlights of Shaunae Miller-Uibo running away with the women’s 200m and setting a new personal best and world-leading time of 22.40 seconds at the American Track League Meeting #2.

Watch video highlights of Shaunae Miller-Uibo running away with the women’s 200m and setting a new personal best and world-leading time of 22.40 seconds at the American Track League Meeting #2. The meeting, which was the second of the series and part of the World Athletics Indoor Tour Silver series – took place on Sunday at Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, AR.

Miller-Uibo, as we reported in the build-up to Sunday’s meeting, had been showing encouraging signs in training, and the Olympic 400m champion transferred that form over to the competitive competition this past weekend.

Running in her first indoor 200m race since 2013, the 26-year-old wasted little time covering her lone target, American Shamier Little, and then powered home to smash her previous indoor personal best of 23.26 seconds.

In the midst of those accomplishments, Miller-Uibo also lowered the Bahamian national record, which was previous held by national sprint icon Pauline Davis-Thompson, who ran 22.68 at World Indoors in Barcelona, Spain in 1995.

He performance is ranked No.9 in the world all-time in indoors. 

“It’s always a great feeling to be back competing,” Miller-Uibo said after the one-lap indoor event. “[I am] So happy with my performance! Thank you @americantrackleague for putting together such a great track meet.”

“It’s back to training now, but I’ve got one more race indoors before I close it up,” she concluded her statement on her social media page.
