KINGSTON, Jamaica – The promising Javon Francis of Akan won his first national senior title after he held on ahead of the fast-finishing Rusheed McDonald to win in 44.70 seconds.
McDonald, who went out too slow in the first 300m, came home like a freight train in 44.73 seconds. Ricardo Chambers was third in 45.10, but was later disqualified.
Peter Mathews, who clocked 45.24, was promoted to third while Edino Steele placed fourth with 45.25 seconds.
Meanwhile, Christine Day of MVP won her first senior title in the 400m in 50.16 seconds, equalling her personal best after successfully chasing down Stephanie McPherson who went out too fast and finished third in 50.49 seconds.
Shericka Jackson left it late but finished fast into second with a personal best of 50.31 seconds.
