ANTIGUAN SPRINTER WINS GOLD AND SILVER AT COMMONWEALTH YOUTH GAMES
Wednesday 16th November 2011

Congratulation to Tahir Walsh on his tremendous success at the Commonwealth Youth Games (GYG) in the Isle of Man (September 7th-13th).

Walsh, who will turn 18 next February, competed in both the 100m and 200m sprints as well as the 4x100m relay with fellow competitors Cejhae Greene, Mark Phillips and Jared Jarvis.

Tahir’s first race was the third and fastest heat of the 100m race. He came in second to Australia’s Josh Clarke and just ahead of England’s Chijindu Ujah. His time of 10.60 seconds easily advanced him to the semifinal. In the next round, Walsh faced stiff competition but was able to come first in his semifinal with an improved time of 10. 51 seconds. This advanced him to the finals and set up a rematch with Clarke and Ujah. In the final, Walsh flexed his muscles and proved he was the fastest man at the games and won gold.
