Jereem Richards led Trinidad and Tobago athletes to medal positions on Sunday at two separate meets, as athletes continue preparation for the Tokyo Olympics later this year. Richards, won the seldom-run 150m at the Adidas Boost Boston Games in a time of 14.75 seconds. He beat Jamaican Yohan Blake and American Andrew Hudson who both ran times of 14.94 seconds.
Michelle-Lee Ahye was also successful on Sunday, as the speedster claimed gold in the 100m C Final at the same meet. She clocked a season best 11.22 seconds to win that event. Fellow Trinbagonian Kellyann Baptiste was third in 11.56 seconds. They were separated by Kristal Awuah of Great Britain in a time of 11.46 seconds.
Michelle-Lee Ahye also competed in the 200m, where she ran another season best. However her season best of 22.62 seconds was only good enough for 4th place. That race was won by Bahamian Shaunae Miller-Uibo in a time of 22.08 seconds.
And 2012 Olympic gold medallist Keshorn Walcott’s best throw of 77.78 metres was good enough for silver at the Gateshead Diamond League meet.
Polish Marcin Krukowski threw the javelin 82.61 metres to win the event, while Swedish Kim Amb’s best throw of 76.96 metres enabled him to claim 3rd.
