Usain Bolt successor 12-yr-old Jamaican sprinter 'Brianna Lyston' runs 200m in 23 secs, 2 secs short of world record
05 April 2017 Current Affairs:  At the 2017 Boys and Girls Championships, Brianna Lyston (12-year-old Jamaican female athlete) left her competitors in her wake to win the 200m race in the Caribbean nation, clocking a time of 23.72 seconds - almost within two seconds of the senior world record set by Florence Griffith-Joyner at the 1988 Olympics.

It is little wonder she is being immediately compared to the exploits of her all-conquering compatriot Usain Bolt.
