ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – World class Sprinter Tahesia Harrigan-Scott continued her Indoor Season over the weekend with a trip to Germany, competing at Meets in Dusseldorf and the Karlsruhe.

Following an overnight flight, Harrigan-Scott opened her European tour on Friday with a 6th place finish in the 60m in Dusseldorf, Germany with a time of 7.30 seconds after running 7.35 in the semi – finals.

Carina Horn took the tape in 7.21 with Jamiacan Aleen Baily 7th in 7.31.

“Another day of competition down, 7.34 in prelims and 7.35 in the finals, it's not what I was looking for, but everything is a process and I am trusting that when it clicks it will click. God's plan and timing is always more important than your own. Patience is key!!!” commented Harrigan-Scott via social media.

The PSD Bank Meeting is an annual indoor track and field competition which takes place in February at the Arena-Sportparkin Düsseldorf, Germany. The inaugural edition Internationales Indoor Meeting Düsseldorf was held in 2006 and attracted a sell-out crowd of 1500 people. The competition was created following investment by the Düsseldorf municipal council, bringing a new usage to the venue which had served as a training facility for the 1977 IAAF World Cup.

Kim Collins won the Men’s 60m run with a time of 6.52

Tahesia Harrigan-Scott then ran 7.34 secs in 60m prelims and 7.35 in finals at the Messe Arena in Karlsruhe, Germany, to place 7th overall. Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith won the event in a time of 7.12, with Baily, 5th in 7.27.

The Europahalle, which had served as the Karlsruhe meeting venue for many years since its inception in 1985, is undergoing a full renovation so the organisers were obliged to find a new location and opted for the Messe-Arena, which is part of the city’s trade fair complex.

To stage the meeting, the city actually purchased the track used at the 2013 European Indoor Championships and had it shipped to Karlsruhe, becoming only the second six-lane indoor track in Germany after the Leipzig Arena.

Elsewhere, Taylor Hill put in one of her best times yet in the 60m, 7.56, in Houston Texas, after finishing with a time of 7.63 in the semi finals to place 7th   

She would go on to run 25.21 in the 200m

In North Carolina: Khari Herbert ran 49.25 to win his 400m heat and place 2nd overall. Returning to the track he was 3rd in the 200m heats with a time of 22.77 and placed 8th.

Also in North Carolina, Lakeisha "Mimi" Warner qualified for the State 4A Championships after a 4th place finish in her 500m heat where she was 5th overall, in 1:20.46.
