  1. You made a mistake, part of your article say,..

    Safhia Hinds of St. Jago broke the Class 2 girls’ 400m record, running 56.50 to beat the previous mark of 56.33. (she can’t run 56.50 to beat the previous mark of 56.33)

  2. Just goes to show how special Kemoy Campbell was at Champs in 2010 running all by himself and still setting the record of 3:45.54.
