17-year-old Tina Clayton is celebrating a Gold medal win in the 100-meter finals at the World Athletics Under 20 Champs that being held in Nairobi, Kenya. The moment was a very special birthday gift for her and her twin sister, with the special day happening just a few days ago.

In her well-executed race, Clayton finished ahead of the Namibian Olympian Beatrice Masilingi, in a personal best time of 11.09s to retain the title set by Jamaican Olympian Briana Williams, in Finland’s 2018 version of the competition.

According to Clayton, she knew the possibility of gaining a personal best was more than real as she was pushed greatly by her coach even amid challenges and supported fully by her mother who encouraged her not to give up.

Tina sees the moment as a very special birthday present for not only herself but also her sister Tia who did not get a chance to compete in the 100-meter race, however, according to her if her twin sister was in the race it would be first and second for them.

With that in mind, the Edwin Allen student said she had it in mind just to execute and get the Gold medal for herself and her sister.

Now that Tina has achieved her honourable dream, she is calling it the best birthday present and says her sister was more than likely in a state of celebration back at the hotel just as she was.

The young female athlete even took a day off to commemorate the moment but will get back into action as she prepares to line up for the 4×100-meter relays.
