There was little action for local athletes at the IAAF World Championships in London today but this country still featured in one significant moment.

It was the medal ceremony featuring 200 Metre Bronze Medallist Jereem Richards.

The talented 23 year old gave this country's its first medal at these championships after clocking a solid 20.11 seconds, the same time as second placed Wayde Van Niekerk of South Africa.

The Alabama student capped a fine season, one in which he achieved a host of personal bests, including dipping under 20-seconds for the half lap event.

He credits a strong off-season for his turnaround in form and fortunes, and said he was really eyeing the Gold Medal when he took to the track on Thursday.

With Richards winning Bronze in the Men's 200M at the IAAF World Championships in London, several persons took time out their busy schedule in downtown Port of Spain to send their congratulations to the talented sprinter, among them President of PanTrinbago, Keith Diaz, and this country's United Nations Ambassador, Pennelope Beckles.
