Kemar spectacular in indoor 60m

Kemar Hyman turned in the second fastest time in the world this year for the 60 metre dash as he posted a 6.56 second mark in the finals at the Auburn Indoor Invitational at Auburn University last Saturday.

Kemar,competing for Florida State University,had already qualified for the World Indoor Championships, in Istanbul,Turkey next March,and improved his personal best to 6.64 in the preliminaries.

However, it was in the final that he put himself in the mix for medals at the upcoming meet. He was just nipped for victory by Auburn’s Harry Adams, who claimed the top performance for the year so far with 6.55.

Kemar tied the Cayman national record for the event,which he now holds jointly with Kareem Streete-Thompson,who set the mark originally in Leipzig,Germany in 2004. Kemar’s time was only .01 second off the FSU record.

Kemar also provided FSU with its first qualifier for the NCAA 2012 Indoor Champinships,which are coincidentally also scheduled for 9-10 March in Boise,Idaho.

His outstanding effort earned him a share of the title of Atlantic Coast Conference Male Indoor Track Performer of the Week along with Clemson hurdler Spencer Adams.

The Seminoles will be in action this weekend at the University of Arkansas,and have several more meets scheduled before the ACC Championships on 23-34 February in Boston.
