Young sprint champion Tina Clayton has been dashing to greatness with no apologies for the runners she has left in her dust on the track.
According to Irie FM, the young sprinter, who was born on August 17, 2004, was named the international under-20 female athlete for the year 2022 by Athletics Weekly.
This recognition came in light of the athlete’s achieving a record time of 10.95 seconds on the clock to win gold at the world under-20 championship in Cali, Columbia. She was also a part of Jamaica’s winning team for the championship’s 4×100-meter event.
In the sprinter’s latest matchup, she is set to compete against seasoned Jamaican sprinter Natasha Morrison in Arkansas at the 2023 Tyson Invitational Meet on Friday, February 1.
The two are set to clash in a 60-meter race that also includes Jamaican Shockoria Wallace, the USA’s Jada Baylark and Taliyah Brooks, Cindy Sember from the UK, and Bahamian Anthonique Strachan.
Clayton was scheduled to compete against Elaine Thompson-Herah at the Queen’s Grace Jackson meet; however, because the meet was behind schedule, the manager for the MVP track club, Paul Francis, made the decision to withdraw all of the remaining MVP athletes that were to compete in the championship’s events.
According to sources, they were removed in fear that they would not be at their best and he did not want to risk the athletes injuring themselves.
