Ashanti Moore, despite her absence from competition since early February, admitted she is healthy and ready to challenge for the Class 1 girls’ 100m title at Champs 2020.
Hydel’s Moore pending Class 1 girls’ 100m clash with Edwin Allen’s Kevona Davis is a must-see at Champs 2020. Both are powerfully built sprinters, tall and fast.
In 2019, Moore ran a personal best 11.17 to win the Class 1 girls’ event while Davis, then final year 2, ran 11.19. However, Davis personal best is 11.16, which gave her Champs honours in 2018.
Since Champs 2019, Moore has only run two 100m and one 200m races.
But in an Observer story on Sunday, she answered fans who expressed concerns over her fitness.
“Well the both of us are healthy [and] it will be a very competitive race,” explained Moore about herself and Davis.
Veronica Campbell-Brown holds the Champs Class 1 girls’ record of 11.13, set back in 2001.
“It’s a possibility that the record will go,” Moore told the Jamaica Observer.
Track and field experts believe Champs could see its first sub-11. The Jamaican record held by Briana Williams is 11.02.
“My aim is to get a personal best, regardless of the position [in which] I finish,” concluded Moore.
