Opposition leader Allen Chastanet has extended congratulations to Saint Lucian sprinter Julien Alfred, who set a new NCAA record on Saturday.

Alfred clocked 7.02 seconds to win the 60m dash at the 2023 Martin Luther King Invitational held at the Albuquerque Convention Centre at the University of New Mexico.

The University of Texas senior ran ahead of teammate Rhasidat Adekele, who was runner-up in 7.20 seconds.

Maboundou Kone ran a close 3rd in 7.21 seconds.

Alfred’s latest accomplishment means she has clocked the three fastest times over 60m by any woman in NCAA history at 7.02, 7.04, and 7.05 seconds.

Opposition leader Allen Chastanet said that Alfred’s winning performance ranked her among the top 20 fastest performers on the world’s all-time list.

“Well done Julien,” the former Prime Minister wrote on Facebook.

  1. I know your administration and Minister of Sports would have done more for her and her development than those that are Putting People First.

  2. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE please do your research and find out how trained this girl before you talk your crap..Be reminded her local coach was never recognized by the Allen administration…. So I don’t what you talking about…. Be you can run you must walk…. The roots are the foundation of any person…… Thank you

  3. Congratulations dear sister of the soil…we appreciate your contribution and we celebrate in light of your success… wishing you all the best..

  4. My girl you just did what I was hoping to hear for years a local woman not a jamaican or any other big island girl congrats my girl I used to sprint at school but didn’t get a the opportunity like you

  5. Couldn’t find a better photograph of the young lady? The level of journalism that goes into these posts are questionable to say the least.
