NEW YORK, U.S.A – This moment was bigger than just Bahamian history. It was World Athletics history. 

When Devynne Charlton heard her 60mh time of 7.67 secs at the Millrose Games in New York, she knew it was a special moment that would live on forever.

In the final, Charlton was positioned in the middle of the track between two-time world champion Danielle Williams of Jamaica and two-time world indoor world champion Nia Ali of the United States.

Charlton has been building up to this moment all season long. She ran a then-national record of 7.75 seconds in Lubbock, and 7.76 seconds in Boston. 

Charlton, the reigning silver medalist in the event will be considered a strong contender at the ’24 world indoor champs next month in Glasgow, Scotland.

College Track and Field

It was a huge weekend for Bahamians in the 60m, at the collegiate level as well. 

Texas Tech Red Raiders senior Terrence Jones clocked a new personal best of 6.47 secs, fourth all-time in school history. Fellow Bahamian and Red Raiders sophomore Antoine Andrews finished fourth in a personal best 6.58 secs.

Florida Gators’ senior Wanya McCoy  also set a new personal best of 6.58 secs at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

Minnesota State-Mankato Mavericks senior  Denisha Cartwright continues to rewrite the NCAA Division II record books.

With her time of 8.05 secs, cartwright tied the all-time D2 indoor record in the 60-meter hurdles. 

She has three of the top five times in the event in all of D2. She also holds the best time in the 300m second best time in the 60m and third best time in the 200m.
