Kwame Laurence :: Trinidad Express :: 08.10.2018

Tonya Nero finished 21st in the women's race at the inaugural Commonwealth Half Marathon Championships in Cardiff, Wales, on Sunday. The Trinidad and Tobago distance runner completed the 13.1-mile course in one hour, 17 minutes, six seconds—her fastest clocking this year.

Sunday's run bettered the 1:19:53 clocking Nero had produced on the same course, at the 2016 IAAF World Half Marathon Championships.

"It was a perfect race day," Nero posted on Facebook, following her fine run. "I'm always very grateful for the opportunity to run and represent. Thanking God for this wonderful gift."
