Teenager Nickecoy Bramwell Breaks Usain Bolt’s Long-standing Record

Usain Bolt’s Under-17s 400m world record, held for an impressive 22 years since 2002, has been broken by teenage Jamaican athlete Nickecoy Bramwell. At the Carifta Games in Grenada, 16-year-old Bramwell clocked a time of 47.26 seconds in the 400m race, narrowly surpassing Bolt’s record by less than a tenth of a second. Despite facing several injuries, Bramwell finished ahead of his competitors, with Kemron Mathlyn and Eagan Neely placing second and third, respectively. Bramwell expressed his goal-focused determination and pride in breaking the record. Usain Bolt, an eight-time Olympic champion, still holds the world record for the fastest 100m at 9.58 seconds, set in 2009. Bolt, who retired in 2017, has since been involved in charity football and supporting the next generation of athletes.
