Jamaica’s Brianna Lyston secured her first major championship medal with gold in the women’s 200m at the World Under-20 Championships in Cali, Colombia on Friday.

The 18-year-old clocked 22.65 seconds for an easy victory.

Jayla Jamison of the USA secured silver in a personal best of 22.77 seconds while Alana Reid, the other Jamaican, took the bronze in 22.95, also a new personal best.
