She set a national record in the 55m meter dash, and lowered that time further with a remarkable 6.93s clocking, which currently ranks her 5th in the world.

Meanwhile, sprinter Flings Owusu-Agyapong produced another impressive 7.26 performance over 60m to clinch third place in the US Grand Prix at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix on Saturday.
