Cray competing with Asafa at world indoors.

 

Coach of Fil-Heritage sprinters Eric Cray and Brandon Thomas, and several other olympic legends. Davian Clarke is a 3 Time Olympic Finalist for Jamaica in 400m with a PB of 44.83. Only regarding the 60m Cray is the Asian Indoor bronze medalist in the 60m, and holds the National record at 6.57. 

Hi,  here is some additional info about Eric’s January you did not get. He opened up with a 6.62 in the 60m his 3rd fastest time ever and #1 time in Asia currently.

He ran the 200m at the same meet 21.59 #1 time in Asia currently. He then went to Canada to race over two days the 50m and 60m. He played at the Knight Columbus Games 2017.

He ran 5.76 and 5.78 He was second in the 50m after running 5.76 which is the number two fastest all time time in Asia. He actually is 4th and 6th as 5.78 is the 6th fastest ever. According to Wikipedia. The Fastest time by an Asian is held by Uzbekistan pair Anvar Kuchmuradov and Vitaly Savin with times of 5.72 in 1994 and 1995. Their is also a wind aided 5.69 by Gennaidy Chernovol of Kazakhstan in 2002.

The next day he ran the 60m and he was extremely tired he was second in the finals in 6.72. So that is what happened in January, three meets.
