British Virgin Islands athlete Kyron McMaster finished second at the prestigious Müller Anniversary Games in London yesterday – his first international clash since May when he set a world leading 47.80 seconds in Jamaica.

He, yesterday, also became the first male athlete from the British Virgin Islands to participate in an IAAF Diamond League event.

McMaster, who led the race beyond the final hurdle, was clipped near the finish line by Trinidad-born Clement Kerron who competes for the United States.

Kerron clocked a season’s best 48.02 to beat McMaster who finished in 48.12 seconds.

Copello Yasmani was third in 48.24 at the event held in the former Olympic Stadium, London.

It comes weeks before the IAAF World Championships in London where McMaster will try to win the BVI’s first medal at such top-level event.
