Jamaica’s Nickisha Pryce Shows Class In New Track Record

Nickisha Pryce, the young Jamaican rising star, set a new Jamaican and collegiate record to win 400m title at NCAA Championships; Lyston takes silver in 100m.

The University of Arkansas senior smashed the previous Jamaican record 49.30 seconds established by Lorraine Fenton in July 2002.

Pryce’s time is the joint 13th best all time with Mexico’s Anna Gabriela Guevara, ahead of American Chandra Cheeseborough, 49.05 seconds, and just behind Valerie Brisco Hook’s 48.83 seconds.

She produced an excellent display to establish a new mark in a winning effort at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Championships at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon on Saturday.

The 23-year-old’s time is also a collegiate record, erasing Britton Wilson’s 49.13 done in 2023.

Arkansas occupied the first four spots in Saturday’s final through Kaylyn Brown (49.13), Amber Anning (49.59) and Rosey Effiong (49.72).

In the Women’s 100m, LSU’s Brianna Lyston produced 10.89 (2.2 m/s) for second behind Ole Miss senior McKenzie Long who won in 10.82. Texas Tech senior Rosemary Chukwuma was third in 10.90.
