Burchell Not Surprised by Fast Time in France

Two-time NCAA Indoor 60-metres champion Remona Burchell says she expected a fast time when she competed in France on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Jamaican ran a season’s best 7.13secs to finish ahead of Portugal’s Lorene Bazolo with Jamile Samuel of the Netherlands third.

The time makes Burchell, a former student of Herbert Morrison High School in Montego Bay, the fastest Jamaican woman in the world this year and the 12th fastest in the world.
