Three the fast way
History was made at the National Stadium last night when three Barbadians crossed the finish line to post “A” times in the men’s 110 metres hurdles at the 2012 National Championships in athletics, all qualifying for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Former world champion Ryan Brathwaite took command of the race from the third hurdle and went on to win in a time of 13.39 seconds (wind -0.8), but the real treat was Indiana State sophomore Greggmar Swift who capitalized on an excellent start to lower his time from 13.55 to 13.52 seconds, despite the headwind.
Texas Tech’s Shane Brathwaite, who had already qualified, was third overall in 13.63 seconds, after striking one of the middle hurdles. (SAT)
