Ryan Brathwaite takes gold in Berlin
Blue, yellow and black, put it up! Cheese-on-Bread salutes Bajan 110m hurdler Ryan Brathwaite, who won Barbados' first ever gold medal at the IAAF World Championships in Berlin today.
Setting a new national record of 13.14, Brathwaite dipped on the line ahead of Terrence Trammel and David Payne of the USA, who both clocked 13.15.
Congrats, Ryan. You worked hard for this, boy. Well done.
And Usain Bolt continued his winning ways as well today, busting his own 200m record down to 19.19. Wuhloss. Go on with your bad self, Bolt.
