KRISTINA KNOTT BREAKS DE VEGA’S 33-YEAR OLD RECORD IN 100- METERS
Kristina Knott, the Southeast Asian Games champion for 200m, clocked 11.27-seconds in the Drake Blue Oval Showcase in Iowa to set a new national record.
It took 33 years, but Lydia De Vega’s longstanding record in the 100-meters has been broken.
The Philippine Athletics Track and Field Association (PATAFA) confirmed Knott’s feat on its official Facebook account.
Knott finished in second place in the meet, behind Kayla White of the United States, who ran a season-best 11.18-seconds.
Pinoy Athletics reported that physical distancing was observed in the meet, with the athletes running one lane apart.
