MARIO BURKE’s name can be found dotted throughout the records of the BC Track Young Olympians Classic.
Yesterday at the National Stadium, Burke added one more mark to his growing list. This time it was in the Under-17 Boys’ 100 metres.
As if the tension of running wasn’t enough, the field received a yellow card.
On the second attempt, Burke accelerated away from the field, crossing the line in 10.97 seconds to erase Everton Greenidge’s five-year mark of 11.11 seconds.
However, the 14-year-old still has to go faster, at least 10.70, if he hopes to qualify for the CARIFTA Games in Hamilton, Bermuda, from April 7 to 9. (SAT)
