Wooi! Go Grenada!

August 30, 2011

GRENADA teenager Kirani James has become the youngest 400m world champion in history in thrilling circumstances.

James, who turns 19 tomorrow, produced a personal best time of 44.60sec to mow down defending champion LaShawn Merritt over the final couple of metres.

His stunning performance makes him the youngest to have a world championships gold medal in the 400m by more than two years, replacing 2005 champion Jeremy Wariner who was 21 when he saluted.
