Gold for Richards in 200m, breaks Commonwealth record

Jereem Richards has won gold for Trinidad and To­ba­go in the Men’s 200 me­tres event at the Com­mon­wealth Games in Birm­ing­ham.


He de­fend­ed the ti­tle he won four years ago, run­ning at a speed of 19.80 sec­onds to beat Eng­land’s Zhar­nel Hugh­es who ran 20.12.

Joseph Amoah of Ghana was third in 20.19

Richards al­so broke Namib­ian Frankie Fred­er­icks’ 200 me­tres Com­mon­wealth record of 19.97 set in 1994

Richards‘ win is T&T’s sec­ond gold medal at the games and now means that T&T holds both the Com­mon­wealth Games records in the Men’s 100 me­tres (9.88 set by Ato Boldon in 1998) and 200 me­tres sprints

Richards is now the third 200m run­ner of all time to suc­cess­ful­ly de­fend this ti­tle
