By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Jamaica won gold and silver in the 100m race at the World Athletics U-20 Championships Cali 22 on Wednesday.
Young sensation Tina Clayton never had any doubt she was going to win the 100m defending her world title and she did so in style with a new record of 10.95 (-0.1m/s). Her teammate Serena Cole was right behind capturing the silver medal in 11.14 at the Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium in Cali, Colombia.
Shawnti Jackson of the United States and N’Ketia Seedo of the Netherlands tied for bronze in 11.15.
“Coming out, my mindset wasn’t about a personal best or championship record, it was to defend my title,” said Clayton. “I didn’t feel any pressure. I have all the confidence that I put in the work, and I trusted my coach (Michael Dyke).”
