Beckles sets new national record
Barbadian athlete Kierre Beckles continues to make her country proud. In the recently concluded 100M hurdles heat at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing, Beckles set a new national record of 12.88 seconds, placing second behind American athlete Dawn Harper Nelson.
Beckles has therefore qualified for the 100M hurdles semifinal, which is scheduled to run on August 28 at 7.25 a.m. local time.
Congratulations to her.
