Women Will Bring The Speed

A month from now, a speedy group of Jamaican ladies will sprint for the honour of running at the World Championships this September in Doha, Qatar. Among them will be Gayon Evans, the Commonwealth Games 100 metre bronze medal winner.

 

The 29-year-old Evans embellished her résumé in the last two seasons. In 2017, she parlayed her quick start into a World Indoor Tour title and a 60-metre personal best of 7.14 seconds.

Last year, she hit another lifetime best, 11.22 seconds, for third place in the 100 metres at the Commonwealth Games.

 

At the same All Comers meet, superstars Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and Elaine Thompson clicked off 100 -metre yearly bests of 10.97 and 11.09 seconds, respectively.

 

Evans teamed with Natasha Morrison, Sashalee Forbes and CAC Games 100m champion Jonielle Smith to win the silver medal at the IAAF World Relays, but she knows there will be more contenders at the Nationals.
