Cyclist Phillip burns another 200m record
Twenty-year-old Njisane Phillip set a new national record in the Flying 200m for the second time this year when he clocked 10.720 seconds to win the event at the National Cycling Championships at the Arima Velodrome on Sunday. Reaching a speed of 67.16 kilometres an hour, he improved on the 10.780 he had timed during the Easter International Grand Prix at the same venue in April. Phillip created the new record during the qualifying stages of the event and was to meet fellow Beacon cyclist Christopher Sellier in the final, though Sellier had to pull out after falling ill. He will get another chance to shine when the Championships continue on Thursday with the Kilometre and Time Trial at the same venue.
