In one amazing, spring-loaded leap that had shaped up as an improbable success, Sakari Famous of the tiny island of Bermuda achieved a very large milestone Saturday, jumping higher than the U.S. Track Association national record for her age group.

The 14-year-old high jumper from the Bermuda Pacers team cleared the bar at 1.75 meters (5 feet, 8-¾ inches) at the Russell E. Blunt East Coast Invitational track meet. Although it was better than the U.S. national record of 1.74 meters in the 13-14 age group, Famous won’t be credited in the record books because she is not a U.S. competitor.

Still, the gold medal performance was a personal best, and smashed the 1.74-meter meet record set in 2003 by Durham Striders alumnus Patience Coleman, who went on to be an All-American and ACC champion high jumper for UNC Chapel Hill.

The Bull City Express 4x100 relay team of Alexandria Council, Ama-Selina Tchume, Carolyn Brown, and Sydnei Murphy smashed the girls 17-18 age group meet record with a time of 45.10. The old record of 46.16 was set in 2006 by the Carolina Mustangs.

After Saturday’s second day of competition at Durham County Memorial Stadium, the host Durham Striders were in first place in both the male and female overall team race. Action resumes Sunday morning.
