Khailan Vitalis has reset the national junior record for the Under-20 men’s 110m hurdles for the fourth time in the last 12 months – he’s run faster almost every time he’s touched the track.

Vitalis, who attends Kingston College in Jamaica, ran last weekend at the Corporate Area Champs Meet in Class 1 Final 1.

He ran 14.08 seconds to lower his record from 14.30, placing second overall.

His new time is the 8th fastest in the world for an Under-20 man, with three Caribbean men ahead of him in the rankings.

The performance also qualifies him for the World Under-20 Championships, which will be held later this year in Cali, Colombia.
