Jamaicans at the 2012 Birmingham Diamond League – August 26, 2012 – Results

Several Jamaicans competed yesterday in events at the Birmingham Diamond League meeting in the UK. From a Jamaican perspective, the highlights of the day were: 1) Nickel Ashmeade winning the 200m race ahead of America’s Tyson Gay 2) Rosemarie Whyte winning the 400m in a season’s best time and 3) Kaliese Spencer winning the 400m hurdles in a meet record time of 53.78 secs (she was initially disqualified because her trail leg reportedly did not completely clear one of the hurdles, but was reinstated upon appeal).

Below we’ve detailed the results of all the events in which Jamaicans participated earlier today at the 2012 Birmingham Diamond League:
