April 4, 2024

In a historic moment at the 51st Carifta Games in Grenada, 16-year-old Nickecoy Bramwell etched his name into the annals of athletics, shattering a record once held by the legendary Usain Bolt. Bolt, an eight-time Olympic champion, set the Under-17 400m record of 47.33 seconds 22 years ago, long before his iconic sprinting career took flight.

Amidst battling a series of injury setbacks, Bramwell showcased unparalleled determination and talent, crossing the finish line in a blistering 47.26 seconds, eclipsing Bolt’s record and leaving competitors in his wake. Despite the pressure, Bramwell remained focused, expressing his elation at achieving a long-held goal, stating, “It’s a wonderful feeling to break the record. Since last summer, I have been eyeing the record, so it’s a great feeling I could come out here and get it.”

Fans and spectators marveled at Bramwell’s feat, recognizing the significance of his achievement. Social media erupted with praise, with one enthusiast remarking, “Serious achievement!!” while others celebrated the continuation of Jamaica’s dominance in track and field, affirming, “Yes!!! Glad another Jamaican is carrying on the baton. We are a force to be reckoned with.”

As Bramwell basks in the glory of his record-breaking performance, the world eagerly anticipates witnessing the continued rise of this Jamaican prodigy, whose remarkable talent has already left an indelible mark on the sport.
