Sprint sensation Julien Alfred has claimed St Lucia’s first ever Gold medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games.
The 15-year old produced a superb run in the girl’s under-18 100m dash to cross the finish line in 11.56 seconds Thursday night at the games taking place in Bahamas.
She had earlier won her heat in 12.02 seconds and won the semi-final with 11.80 seconds.
Alfred dropped to her knees to kiss the track after lifting St Lucia to 11th place in the rankings.
She beat out Australian Louise Riley, who won the silver medal, and Deondra Green of Canada who got the bronze.
Julien Alfred received the 2015 St Lucia Junior Sportswoman of the Year Award.
