12-year-old girl the next Usain Bolt?
Brianna Lyston, a 12-year-old from Jamaica, has caused a stir in the world of competitive sports as a record setting sprinter, causing some to hail her as the next Usain Bolt. According to the UK’s Daily Mail, she beat the Girls’ Class Four 200m record in Kingston, Jamaica by clocking a time of 23.72 seconds. That is 0.88 seconds ahead of her nearest rival Oneika McAnnuff, and almost within two seconds of the senior world record set by Florence Griffith-Joyner at the 1988 Olympics. Brianna posted the record time at the 2017 Boys and Girls Championships in Jamaica this past weekend. Two years ago, a 10-year-old Brianna posted 42.41 seconds in the 300m race at the Caribbean Union Teachers Championships in Trinidad and Tobago – over a second faster than the winner of the boys' race. Her compatriot and eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt is widely regarded as the greatest sprinter of all time.
