ADIDAS BOOST BOSTON GAMES 2019
SHAUNAE MILLER-UIBO DOMINATED THE TRACK IN BOSTON
17 juin 2019
After records in the straight 200m and 150m in 2017 and 2018 respectively, not even the constant drizzle and cool temperatures could stop Miller-Uibo from continuing her winning ways with a third straight victory. Despite the challenging conditions, the Bahamian 400m Olympic champion won the 150m in a strong 16.37, just 0.16 seconds shy off the record she set at this very meet last year.
Her training partner and winner of last year’s 150m Noah Lyles did just the same on the men’s side, racing to a meet record 14.69 – bettering his own mark by 0.08.
Records also fell in the women’s 200m hurdles, as Shamier Little clocked 25.88 – the fastest ever time recorded by an American woman. Spain’s Orlando Ortega made it three straight adidas Boost Boston Games victories in the 110m hurdles, winning in 13.29, while on the women’s side Sharika Nelvis repeated her 100m hurdles victory from 2018 in a season’s best 12.65.
Nelvis declared: “You know what, I think the location is great! It’s right outside the hotel, I came here like fifteen minutes before I was supposed to start warming-up… it was great.”
