Jamaican 100m hurdler Britany Anderson believes someone will go below 12 seconds in the event one day.
Anderson, who won her maiden national title in June, took home her first global medal when she won 100m hurdles silver at the recently concluded World Athletics Championships in Eugene.
She ran a new personal best and national record 12.31 in the semi-finals on Sunday before returning to run a wind-aided 12.23 to claim second in the final later that day behind Nigeria’s Tobi Amusan who ran an insane wind-aided 12.06 for victory, hours after setting a new world record 12.12 in the semi-finals.
2015 World champion Danielle Williams previously held the national record of 12.32 which she set in 2019.
