Personal bests fall on Day 4 in Nairobi
Three Canadian athletes registered new personal best times in event finals in the penultimate day of competition at the World Athletics U20 Championships in Nairobi, Kenya, on Saturday.
Ella Clayton was the first competitor to speed to a personal best time, finishing sixth in the women’s 400-metre final with a time of 54.10 seconds. “It felt good. It wasn’t all that I expected, but I’m excited to come back and learn from it and do better next time,” said Clayton. “It has been a super cool experience. I’m so glad I got to be here in Kenya with Team Canada and I’m excited to do it again.”
