Houston Wins Gold, Breaks 24-Yr-Old Record

July 15, 2013

[Updated with video] Bermuda sprinter Tre Houston claimed the gold medal in the 100m dash in record setting style this evening [July 15], crossing the line in 10.34.

This breaks the old Island Games record of 10.58, which had actually been set by Houston himself during this morning’s preliminaries.

Houston’s 10.58 time this morning broke an Island Games record which had stood for some 24 years, since Gordon Crowe of the Isle of Man ran a 10.60 in 1989.
