Jacob shatters brother Joshua’s track record

RISING CYCLIST Jacob Kelly added yet another accomplishment to his successful year when he set a new national 2000 metres juvenile pursuit track record earlier this month at the National Stadium’s Randolph Field Velodrome.

This is Kelly’s last year in the Juvenile class and the Heatwave cyclist is certainly going out with a bang. Kelly finished the four laps in 2 minutes 35.06 seconds, erasing over 10 seconds from the previous record set by his older brother Joshua.

Back in 2012, Joshua had set the record of 2:46.00.

President of the Barbados Cycling Union (BCU), Keith Yearwood, said that although the BCU did not get to hold any competitions at the National Stadium this year, Kelly’s coaches had made a request to the union to allow the young cyclist a shot at breaking the record. (PG)
