Sani Brown sizzles with a win at the World Youth Championships in the 100m Dash (Video)
Jul 18, 2015
HEADLINE: July 15, Cali, with a cool sounding name Japan’s Abdul Hakim Sani Brown, 16 won the world youth championship in Cali, Colombia in a time of 10.28 (-0.4).
Please note as reported by the IAAF this is not actually a Championship Record as Darrel Brown of Trinidad and Tobago ran 10.24 at the 2nd World Youth Champs in Debrecen, Hungary in 2001.
Brown came to Cali with a PB of 10.30 in May, which he tied in the heats and the semi finals. He left his rivals well behind Derick Silva of Brazil took Silver in 10.49, and Rechmial Miller of Great Britain Bronze in 10.59.
Not a very Japanese sounding name? Brown is the product of a Ghanaian father and Japanese mother. Ghana has produced some world class sprinters, and Japan is no slouch as well in world sprinting.
