It took just 10.27 seconds for Barbados’ king of speed Mario Burke to ascend his 100 metres’ throne for a second straight year on Saturday night at the National Stadium.

The time wasn’t as fast as his 10.17 last year, but the University of Houston speedster left nothing to chance as he sprinted to a scintillating victory over Burkheart Ellis, Jaquone Hoyte and experienced campaigner, Ramon Gittens, at the ICBL National Athletics Championships.
