The big day horse is in the money once again.

Shane Brathwaite just continues to deliver for Barbados, having won yet another major medal by finishing third in the men’s 110 metres hurdles at the North American, Central American and Caribbean Championship (NACAC) in Toronto yesterday.

Running out of Lane 7, the 28-year-old Brathwaite got out to a good start in the final before clocking 13.52 seconds to hold off a hard charging Jeffrey Julmis of Haiti for the bronze medal.

It’s the second podium finish in as many weeks for the one-time World Championships finalist, who was fresh off a gold medal-winning performance at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia.

The medal is his fourth at a major senior meet following third-place showings at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Pan American Games a year later. (JM)
