Jamaican sprinter Oblique Seville set a new season-best time in the 100-meter dash at the Miramar Invitational – World Athletics Continental Tour Silver meet held at the Ansin Sports Complex in Florida.
Seville clocked in at 9.95 seconds (1.8 m/s wind), outpacing USA’s Ronnie Baker, who recorded a time of 10.01 seconds. Jamaican Andrew Hudson also set a personal best of 10.07 seconds, securing his spot in the final.
Other impressive performances in the meet included Akeem Blake’s wind-aided heat two win in 10.05 seconds (2.8 m/s), followed by Canada’s Aaron Brown (10.10), USA’s Cravont Charleston (10.12), and Antigua and Berbuda’s Cejhae Greene (10.18). Liberia’s Emmanuel Matadi won the final heat in 10.08 seconds (2.1 m/s), with American Kyree King clocking 10.15 seconds and Jamaican Oshane Bailey finishing in third place with a time of 10.18 seconds.
Seville’s excellent form and readiness to compete at the highest level were evident in his performance at the Miramar Invitational. The Jamaican sprinter’s performance places him as a strong contender in the final. Last summer, he finished fourth in the World Athletics Championships in Oregon.
