Julian Forte was in impressive form at today’s Brussels Diamond League meeting.

The 23-year-old sprinter broke 20 seconds for the first time in his career.

He ran 19.97 to win the men’s 200m and beat his previous best time of 20.04 done in Kingston on June 27, 2015.

Andre Lowe tweeted Forte’s comment saying “I’m really happy, going sub-20 was a big goal for me this season; in fact the last 4 seasons and it really means a lot.”

Adam Gemili of Great Britain, who also ran the same time, lowered his PB from 19.98.

Churandy Martina of Netherland also dipped under 20 seconds with 19.98 for third place.
