Ristananna Tracey became only the third Jamaican woman to win a medal in the 400m hurdles at the World Championships when she produced a magnificent late surge to displace the defending champion Zuzana Hejnova from the last medal position and claim the second bronze medal for the country at the games in London on Thursday.

Omar McLeod lifted the gloom in the Jamaican camp on Monday when he won gold in the men’s 110m hurdle final at the IAAF World Championships in London. Following two days of despair where both Usain bolt and Elaine Thompson had failed to land expected gold medals, it was left up to the Olympic Champion to deliver the goods.
