With 100 days to go until the World Athletics U20 Championships Nairobi 21, Lythe Pillay is one of his country’s brightest prospects for gold.
World-leading marks achieved at this stage of the season don’t tend to leave too much of an imprint on the world all-time lists, but Shaunae Miller-Uibo’s 49.08 to win the 400m at the USATF Grand Prix in Eugene – the first World Athletics Continental Tour Gold meeting of 2021 – broke the stadium record for an iconic venue.
Continuing her comeback in style, Jasmine Camacho-Quinn stormed to a 100m hurdles win in 12.32 (1.7m/s) to move to equal seventh on the world all-time list at the Tom Jones Memorial Invitational in Gainesville, Florida, on Saturday (17).
It might be almost seven years since her successful sprinting career came to an end, but Nicola Sanders is still living life in the fast lane.
Edoardo Scotti’s 45.21-second run in the 400m at the Wanda Diamond League meeting in Rome last year was more than just a PB.
