Jereem takes Gold at Adidas Atlanta City Games | WATCH

It was a gold medal finish for TT’s Jereem Richards on Saturday after he crossed the line first in the men’s 150m B final at the Adidas Atlanta City Games at Centennial Olympic Park, Atlanta Georgia

Richards won the final in a time of 14.83 over the USA duo of Chris Royster (14.89) and Brandon Carnes (14.97).

In an interview after his race, Richards said, “We only started doing speed work last week so, sprinting feels very new to me right now. To run 14.83, I’m very happy with that. I have to trust the process, trust the training and continue getting better.”

“We only been doing tempo stuff, slight speed endurance. I was glad to dip under 15 seconds, so I`m right outside my personal best. Richards personal best came at the Adidas Boost Boston Games in Massachusetts in 2021 claiming the national record in his 14.75 clocking.

Richard added, “I have more possibilities in the 200m than in the 400m but right now I’m very strong in the 400m. I think I can go way faster in the 400m. I`m more comfortable in the 200m but I have a lot of potential in the 400m but only time will tell.”
