RJR News / National 400m champion Javon Francis made a promising start to his Rio Olympic build-up with 46.19 seconds to win the 400 metres open at the inaugural McKenley Wint Classic on the newly- laid synthetic track at Calabar High School on Saturday.
The former Calabar standout was untroubled on his way to his fastest ever performance in January.
World Youth champion Christopher Taylor was also impressive in winning the class two 400 metres, stopping the clock at 46.99 seconds, his fastest ever season opener.
Semoy Hemmings and Tacquece Duggan, both from Hydel, were the top female quarter-milers, both clocking 55.18 seconds to tie for the top spot in class one.
Calabar’s Dejour Russell, the reigning Boys’ Champs class two 110 metre hurdles champion, opened with an efficient 13.78 seconds performance to win as Calabar dominated action on the boys’ side.
However, St Jago’s Keenan Lawrence took a piece of the pie, winning the class two boy’s 1500 metres in an impressive personal best 4 minutes, 00.60 seconds.
Meanwhile, 39-year old Kim Collins ran a world-leading 6.53 seconds to win the specially arranged 60 metre dash as the Central Hurdles and Relays returned after a two year absence at GC Foster College.
Aided by maximum 2.0 metres per second wind, the Kittitian held off Jamaican Oshane Bailey who clocked 6.55.
Bailey who is now at Sprint Tech, finished ahead of MVP’s Kwesi McFarlane who produced 6.77 seconds.
The female race went to Gayon Evans who clocked a nippy 7.19 seconds ahead of Sprint Tech team-mate Audra Segree 7.23 and Shimyra Williams of UTtech 7.34 seconds.
