Brianna Lyston of Hydel High stormed into the Girls’ Class One 100m final with another eye-catching performance on day two of the 2022 ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships at the National Stadium on Wednesday.

Lyston, the big favourite to lift the title later tonight, destroyed the field to win semi-final two in a superb 11.28 seconds (-1.6m/s).

Tina Clayton, who won the 100m gold at the World Athletics U20 Championships in Nairobi, Kenya last year, had no answers for Lyston’s speed and had to settle for second in 11.61 seconds.

Tia Clayton, twin sister of Tina, won the first heat in 11.69 well ahead of St Jago High’s Shanese Walker (11.81) and Petersfield High’s Alexis James (11.88), the Western champion.

Tina’s 11.61 is the second quickest time going into the final, while Tia has the third quickest time.

Lyston’s teammates Kerrica Hill (11.73) and Alana Reid (11.76) secured the fastest qualifying times heading into the Class Two final.

Edwin Allen High’s Theianna-Lee Terrelonge leads all qualifiers into the Class Three final after winning heat one in 11.90. Hydel’s Shemonique Hazle is the second quickest with 12.11.

Natrece East of Wolmer’s Girls has the fastest qualifying time going into the Class Four final with 12.39 seconds.
