Dejour Russell ran away from the field to take 110m Hurdles gold at the IAAF World U18 Championships Nairobi 2017 at the Kasarani Stadium.
Russell stormed over the hurdles to the finish line in 13.04, a new personal best, smashing his championship record of 13.08 he set yesterday. In the semi-finals he smacked one hurdle to win and advance to the final.
“It’s been a great championship for me,” he said. “I have learnt that every step you make, make it count. I listened to my coach’s instructions, which helped me a lot. I really wanted to win gold for my country and I’m happy to have set a championship record.”
