Kemar Bailey-Cole

With competitors Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell impressive in their heats, young sprint prodigy Kemar Bailey-Cole qualified for the final with ease with a 10.04 in heat 2 into a +0.9 head wind.

‘It was a pretty easy run for me (in the heats), I just went out there to execute and finish well; the plan was to win.’ Said Bailey-Cole. ‘Basically, I just want to take it easy, go through the rounds, get to the final and then make it in the top three.’

The final was build as the 21 year-old’s big chance to upstage two of the greatest sprinters of all time and he didn’t disappoint finishing second behind Bolt. Kemar ran an impressive 9.98 with Nickel Ashmeade finishing third with a 9.99.

The young sprinter had earlier told the Gleaner of his aims for the season…

‘It will mean a lot to make the 100m team this year, that is my main goal now and also to run 9.8 this season as well; those are my targets and I am working hard towards them.’
