Brianna Lyston’s time led the world rankings until Aleia Hobbs, whose LSU record Lyston equaled, ran 7.05 seconds minutes later at the same meet. Polish sprinter Ewa Swoboda subsequently set a 7.04-second time at the Orlen Cup, with Italy’s Zaynab Dosso clocking 7.05 seconds.

The St. Jago and Hydel alumnus, in her sophomore year, improved her personal best from 7.29 seconds, qualifying for the final with a 7.14-second run on Friday, breaking her 2023 personal best. Despite being overtaken by Hobbs, Dosso, and Swoboda, Lyston remains the fourth fastest in the world over 60m. Her 7.07-second time also ranks her eighth all-time among Jamaican women in the 60m.

With the SEC and NCAA championships looming, Lyston looks poised to tackle the climax of the indoor (short track) season with confidence.
