Make it two in a row for Milligan College freshman Rasheem Brown.
After setting two schools records in his collegiate debut, the 18-year old Caymanian won his second race of the year Friday (1 February) clocking in at 7.96 seconds in the 60-metre hurdles at the Camel City Invitational in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Competing in a field that included Junior World Championhips silver medalist, American Johnny Dutch, Brown says he was happy with the result.
“I’m very pleased with my performance this weekend, knowing that I performed against professional athletes,” said Brown. “I didn’t achieve the time I wanted. “Now, it’s time to go back to train, get some strength and get ready to perform at National Championships, and be prepared to win some more.”
The win places the Clifton Hunter High School graduate as the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) top hurdler.
Brown will compete next at the Appalachian Athletic Conference Championships 14-15 February, and NAIA National Championships 28 February-1 March in the indoor season finale.
