Melanie Walker wins 400m hurdles for Jamaica – The Golden Rein Continues
Posted by Dresonic on August 22, 2008
Melanie Walker took gold in the women’s 400m hurdler to beat out rival Sheena Tosta of the United States. Up to 300m Sheena Tosta looked good but Melanie Walkie who was the favorite coming into the race put out a great fight to surge pass Tosta in great Jamaican sprinting style. Tosta who ran out of lane 5 had the advantage of pacing Melanie Walker who ran out of lane 6. Melanie now joins the already outstanding performances for Jamaica and had now added her gold medal to bring up the gold medal count for our little island of Jamaica.
Jamaica has been dominating sprinting events since the beginning of the 2008 Beijing Olympics and has shown great talent and heart in all specific events.
