Caribbean supporters were cock-a-hoop today (July 23) in and out of the region, as their Jamaican supremo, Jaheel Hyde, led a two medal strike of their athletes in the men’s 400mh, nearing the end of the penultimate day of action at the newly named, IAAF World Under-20 Championships in Athletics, held in the Zawisa Stadium, Bydgoszcz, Poland.

The Jamaican multi-talent who boasts 110mh titles at both the World Youth and Youth Olympic Games levels in 2013 and 2014, respectively, sped to 49.03 to defend his World Junior Championships (the former name) title, won in Eugene two years ago.

Third place and the bronze medal came from The BVI’s Kyron McMaster, 49.56, a national record for the age group. The region’s total medal haul at this stage, was hoisted to eight.
