MONTEGO BAY, St James -- Jaheel Hyde produced yet another stunning display of hurdling to win Jamaica’s third gold medal at the 8th IAAF World Youth Championships in Donetsk, Ukraine on Friday, 

Hyde clocked a championship record 13.13 seconds.

After running a World Youth Leading 13.22 seconds in the semi-finals, Hyde destroyed a quality field with American Martin Humphrey second in a personal best 13.24 seconds and China’s Yang Lu third in 13.33 seconds, also a personal best.
Jamaica has so far won four medals -- three gold and a bronze -- with two days of competition to go.
