Ackeem Blake from Jamaica prevailed in the men's 100m at the NACAC championships on Saturday afternoon at Grand Bahama Sports Complex in Freeport, Grand Bahama. He clocked a new championship record of 9.98 secs (-0.4 m/s) to finish ahead of American sprinters Kyree King who ran 10.08, and Brandon Carnes, who stopped the clock at 10.12 to take bronze.
“I feel really great winning this final. I just listened to my coach and executed my race like how he taught me in training, and just did that. So I am really proud of myself,” Blake said.
Blake improved the previous championships record of 10.03, set by compatriot Tyquendo Tracey back in 2018 in Toronto, Canada.
