ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Virgin Islands' World Junior silver medallist Kyron A. McMaster turned back the challenge of a top class field in winning the 400m Hurdles and achieving world number one status at the 2017 Jamaica Invitational on May 20, 2017.

McMaster clocked a world leading time of 47.80 seconds to stun the field that included Olympians Bershawn Jackson, Javier Culson and Michael Tinsley and World Junior Champion Jaheel Hyde.

Hyde, who beat McMaster to take the gold at the World Junior Championships in Poland in July 2016 was second in 48:52 while Jackson was third in 48:63.

The 20-year-old McMaster’s time, a new National Record, would have been good for bronze at the Rio Olympics.

    Congrats Mr. Macmaster, your family, coaches, and the entire BVI. A major achievement indeed. So good to see his registration number "284" (BVI area code) leading the pack of world class competitors. Was the registration number a deliberate choice? I am just curious.

    Woke up to good news. Take a page from Hosain Bolt book. Be very aware of the Americans, don't trust them, they hate losing.. They will talk and laugh with you and mess you up just like they did to Kirani James.

    Wow! Kyron blew away that field! Very proud of him as 400m hurdles is the toughest out of the short distance races. BVI is proud 284 in the building. Let this be a motivation to all our youths that there is no substitute for hard work and commitment. Scary part is he is only 20?

    World championships next! I need to find out how i can assist to get this kid to the next level.

    Amazing that the commentators first mentioned Mcmaster on the 100 m stretch when he was clearly in the top 2 for the entire race! They will remember his name now! 284 in the building!

    it just sicken me to see some of them politicians who have done little or nothing for kyron until recently now tying to get the credit, set of oppressors thinking we stupid

    Let's put this in perspective. The 400 hurdles is not an easy race. He ran almost a full second faster than second place. It has been a while since anyone has dominated that race. The way he has been running consistently, and is now rated number one, speaks volumes. On top of it all, he is still learning the race and getting faster. .....I'm excited.

    Both Kyron and his father are proud Virgin Islanders. His grandparents migrated to the BVI from Antigua in the 60s.
