Cayman sprinter smashes personal best

| 09/07/2012

135217_full (250x300).jpg(CNS): One of Cayman’s Olympic hopefuls placed himself among the contenders for the 100 metre title this weekend when he smashed his personal best in Madrid and joined the world’s international elite sprinters in the sub-ten club. Kemar Hyman of the Cayman Islands ran a personal-best 9.95 seconds to win the 100 meters in the Madrid Meet on Saturday, his team told CNS. The 23-year-old from George Towan was aided by a strong but legal tailwind, broke the record for the Spanish capital meet after smashing his own best time of 10.27 seconds set last year. World champion Yohan Blake’s 9.75 is the season’s best going into the London Olympics.

    Great work Kemar, that jamaican blood continues to drive Sprint Nation!!! We need more like you to bridge the divide and inspire both our nations (Cayman/Jamaica).

    Hope you make it to at least the finals. Then maybe the Caribbean can claim all 8 lanes…
