Athletics: Hurdler Brown advances to finals at NACAC


Prior to the North American Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) Championships 18-year old Rasheem Brown said his goal was to run a clean race in the men’s 110m hurdles.

In Friday (10 August) night’s semifinals, he did just that.

Running in Heat 1 among veteran hurdlers such as hometown Olympian and eventual heat winner, Canadian Jonathan Cabral (13.43s),  ‘The Rocket’ finished fifth overall with a time of 14.42 seconds.

Brown’s time was good for the eighth overall, earning him the final qualifying spot in Saturday’s finale at 5:05pm EST.

“I was extremely focus going into the semi finals hoping to make to the finals, which I did. I hurdled clean through out the entire race. I didn’t achieve a personal best in the semi finals, but I’m looking forward to go sub-14 seconds in the finals on Saturday evening by hurdling clean, being aggressive and smooth.”
