Janieve Russell won the women’s 400m hurdles title on Day 2 at the Jamaica Championships on Friday evening.
Russell, as expected, separated herself from the field over the opening 300m and then held her form in the homestretch to win the national title in 54.18 seconds.
“I feel very pleased with myself,” she said after the race.
“I wanted the time to be a lot faster, but I have been making a lot of mistakes in the race from yesterday (21 June) and it came back out today (22 June) and I am just going to work on that”
Leah Nugent improved on her performance from the heats to take second place in 54.70 while defending champion Ronda Whyte also ran a better race in the final to take third in 54.90.
