Some Simple Tips On Programs
Michelle-Lee Ahye captured women’s 100 metres bronze at the Hanzekovic Memorial IAAF World Challenge meet in Zagreb, Croatia, yesterday. The Trinidad and Tobago track star got to the line in 11.26 seconds to finish behind Nigeria’s Blessing Okagbare, the winner in 11.14, and Briton Dina Asher-Smith (11.23). Ahye was a 100m finalist at the IAAF World Championships in London, England, earlier this month. The Texas-based athlete finished sixth in the championship race in 11.01 seconds. She was also listed for action in the 200m, but came down with the flu and did not face the starter in her first round heat. At the T&T Championships, in June, Ahye captured the women’s sprint double. She was particularly impressive in the 100m final, winning in a national record time of 10.82 seconds. Thanks to that clocking, Ahye is second on the 2017 world performance list, behind Jamaica’s 2016 Olympic champion Elaine Thompson (10.71). On Saturday, at the Lappeenrannan Eliittikisat meet in Lappeenranta, Finland, T&T’s Keshorn Walcott finished fifth in the men’s javelin with a 77.61 metres effort. Finland’s Tero Pitkamaki threw 85.56 to emerge victorious in the 10-man competition. Estonians Magnus Kirt (81.97) and Tanel Laanmae (78.67) earned silver and bronze, respectively.
