The federation’s top sprinter Antoine Adams did his nation and fans proud by copping a bronze medal in the Men’s 100m finals on Wednesday (July 22). Adams clocked a time of 10.09seconds for a third-place finish, St. Kitts and Nevis’ first medal at the 2015 Games in Toronto, Canada. Running out of lane 3, the national record holder in the 200m had a quick start for the first 20m where he held the lead but less than half way down the track Andre De Grasse of Canada and Barbados’ Ramon Gittens pulled ahead. De Grasse won the race with a time of 10.05s and Gittens took silver for his 10.06s finish. Earlier in the evening, Adams clocked a time of 10.05s to finish second behind DeGrasse in the semifinal heat to qualify for the finals. Adams and Brijesh Lawrence will now turn their attention to the Men’s 200m and the 4x100m relay later in the week.
