Devynne Charlton Wins Women’s 60m Hurdles in Torun

Devynne Charlton of the Bahamas, an Olympic finalist, continued her strong form by winning the women’s 60m hurdles in a season-best time of 7.90. Reetta Hurske of Finland and Luca Kozak of Poland also surpassed the eight-second barrier, clocking 7.96 and 7.97 seconds respectively. Finland’s Nooralotta Neziri finished fourth, improving her season-best to 8.00.

Devynne Charlton: “I never go into a competition expecting to win, but it’s always a goal. I ran the second-fastest time of my career, so it’s obviously a fast track. I like the facilities and the crowd here. I will now be going to Madrid and then back into training in the USA before the World Championships”.
