With a new personal best time of 50.90 seconds in the men’s 400 metre hurdles, Barbadian Shane Brathwaite has sent a strong message to the selectors here at home.
Brathwaite was second overall in his first outdoor meet of the season at the 2012 Willie Williams Classic, University of Arizona. The winning time was 50.57 as he and his Texas Tech teammates took the top three places.
The run qualifies him for the North American, Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) Under-23 Championships in Mexico from July 6 to 8.
He will need to lower the time even more to 49.8 or 49.5 seconds to meet the Olympic “B” or “A” standard.
