Tina Clayton and Brianna Lyston have been drawn together in the same semi-final of the Class One girls’ 100 meters at the ISSA-Grace Kennedy Boys and Girls Championships 2022 – CHAMPS 2022 – being held inside the National Stadium in Kingston.
The two leading gold medal favorites will race together in semi-final two of the event, but they are expected to advance to final with the top 3 finishers plus the next 2 best times moving into the final, which will take place later this evening.
Lyston of Hydel High enters as the pre-championships favorite on form, while Tina Clayton, who represents Edwin Allen, comes in as the World U20 Championships gold medalist from last summer.
Meanwhile, Tina’s twin sister Tia, will race from the first semi-final heat and will go up against Alexis James of Petersfield who ran the fastest time from the heats on a very windy day on Tuesday, at 11.72 seconds.
Tia Clayton ran 12.24 secs to book her place in the semis, while Shenese Walker of St. Jago High ran 11.87 secs to clock the second-fastest time from the heats.
