Antigua’s Greene Punches Paris Olympics Ticket


Antigua and Barbuda’s Cejhae Greene qualified for the Paris Olympics with a 100m time of 9.93 seconds at the PURE Athletics Sprint Elite Meet in Florida.

This scorching run, the fourth fastest in the world this year, earned him silver behind America’s Kendal Williams (9.89 seconds). Greene’s performance guarantees his spot at the Games from July 26 to August 11.

  1. The man done qualify before this, but a 9.93 is awesome and is definitely a medal rewarded time in the Olympics or on any other stage.
    The thing is these little out of the way meets you kept running in always come off looking impressive because no real big names competing, then once you get with the big boys you clocking in the 10.20’s. As I said before if you want to know where you really at, get on the Diamond league or your Puma sponsored meets.
    Congratulation on a wicked time heading into an Olympics10. flat or below and am cool with that, but I said the same thing to Miguel Francis heading in to Rio where the 200m that year was trouble for Bolt and by the first heat NS.
    Jah guidance and protection always and keep running faster.

  2. I want to believe News Room got this wrong and is a bit late reporting. This is the same meet Cejhae was in when he qualified with a 10. flat but this was a couple of weekends back.
    Williams won with a 9.93 and Cejhae got second with a 10. The goal is to now push for this 9.93 or as I stated previously anything below 10 and you straight.
    Are we just sending two athletes to the Olympics? What are our athletic clubs doing you should be able to provide a few qualifiers. Two athletes surrounded by twenty people not cool.
    I always think high jumping is the easiest field event to master and one can even experiment on this right in their back yard, by building their own may be with a few old mattresses, bamboo etc, get some ankle weights, head to the beach, horizontals, don’t have to buy no expensive poles like a pole falter, so why am I not seeing anyone? Why aren’t Ms Pricella Fredricks doing some coaching? Man i Just like to see this dude from Qatar Bashim jump.
