Miller-Uibo, Gardiner win in Hungary

Both Shaunae Miller-Uibo and Steven Gardiner turned in strong performances on Tuesday in Hungaray at the Gyulai Istvan Memorial.

Miller-Uibo set a meet record and season-best 22.18 seconds to win the 200 meters (m) ahead of Marie-Josee Ta Lou, who crossed the line in 22.76 seconds. Jenna Prandini, from the United States, was third in 22.88 seconds.

“I love competing in this race. The crowd is here is always phenomenal,” Miller-Uibo said in Hungaray. “I don’t think that I prepared as much as I should for my first 200 of the year, but at this point we’re just going with the flow. The main goal is always just to get out and run fast, but at this point we’re just trying to see where we are at this point.”
