(Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada) -- Clemson rising sophomore Stormy Kendrick blew away the international field to capture the 200m at the World Junior Championships on a cool, breezy Friday evening. Her time of 22.99 was a lifetime personal best.
"I'm just so blessed," exclaimed Kendrick. "I just had to run my race, be patient and not worry about what everyone else was doing."
