Taylor-Ashley Bean Breaks Record…Again

May 11, 2012

Marking the fourth record she has broken in the last 6 weeks, Bermuda’s Taylor-Ashley Bean has shattered the 800m Junior Women’s National record for second time in five days.

The powerhouse runner set her latest record at a meet held in Salem, Virginia yesterday [May 10]. Bean clocked a time of 2:10.53 to better the 800m record she set this past Sunday, which also served to move her to sixth place on the NCAA Division II national rankings list.

Bean has set four Junior National Records at three different distances in the past six weeks:

  • March 30 – set a new 1500m record of 4:42.82 displacing the previous record [of 4:45.90] set by older sister Alexis in 2009
  • April 9 – set a new 3000m record with a time of 10:22.82 during her silver medal performance at the Carifta Games
  • May 6 – broke the 800m record with a time of 2:12.72, replacing the former mark of 2:13.51 set by older sister Alexis in 2008.
  • May 10 – ran a new 800m record of 2:10.53, bettering her previous record set five days previously, by 2.19 seconds.

    I know people are going to think I’m being negative with this comment but trust me that is the furthest thing from my mind as I am proud to see a Bermudian excel in such a great way. I just need clarification on something though. How could she set a new 3000m record but come second? Should that have said a new personal best? Anyway, congrats on your accomplishments as you are doing the country, your family, your friends and yourself very proud!

    Congratulations, Ashley – much success for the future.

    dw, as your remarks were respectfully written I will also respectfully inform you that you do not need to win a race to set a national record. In fact, you can finish dead last and still set a national record. She finished second to a Jamaican athlete which makes it very possible for her performance to be a personal best as well as a national record. Congratulations Taylor-Ashley Bean!

    @dw….mercy are you serious?? Watch a track meet or two and learn something. She set a BERMUDA national record so if athletes from other countries/schools beat her it doesn’t matter. The record stands for all BERMUDIAN athletes. Hope that answers your question dw aka dumb wit
