Neptune’s Ajee’ Wilson wins the IAAF World Youth Championships 800!!!
After the lead pack split 59.62, she made her big move on the backstretch and passed China’s Chunyu Wang, Great Britain’s Jessica Judd and California’s Amy Weissenbach with 200 meters left.
Wilson crosses in a new state record 2:02.64, bettering her mark of 2:03.17 which she posted in the semifinals.
Ajee’ literally ran away from the leaders after the final turn. Wang second in 2:03.23. Judd third in 2:03.43. Weissenbach fourth 2:03.49.
And remember, Weissenbach is the national federation high school record-holder with a 2:02.04 from the Cali state meet. Wilson just blew away a very talented field.
