(CNS): Local sprinter Jamal Walton not only won gold over the weekend at the Central America and Caribbean Junior Championships in the 400m he also broke the meet’s record previously set by none other than Usain Bolt. Walton won the Under-18 400-metres with a time of 47.01 seconds, breaking Bolt’s previous mark of 47.12 seconds.
