Marileidy surpasses Guevara for second best world mark in 300 meters

The Olympic and world medalist, Marileidy Paulino, once again put her name in gold letters this Friday by beating the Mexican Ana Guevara in the 300-meter world mark, registering a time of 35:16, only remaining behind Miller- Uber that did 34;41.

The world record in the 300 meters is held by Miller-Ubo, from the Bahamas, with a time of 34:41, which he set at the Golden Spike in Ostrava in 2019.

With this superb performance of the native of Don Gregorio, Baní, in the competition in the Spring Break Classic, she seeks to accumulate more points for the ranking and thus obtain her qualification for the Central American and Caribbean Games in San Salvador.

Ana Guevara in 2003 set a record in the 300-meter dash of 35:30

Paulino managed to stop the clock at 35:16, leaving behind Makenzie Dunmore, from the United States, who did a time of 36:91.

From Santo Domingo, the president of the Dominican Athletics Federation, Gerardo Suero Correa, congratulated the Dominican athlete for her resounding victory, with which she continues to climb in world athletics.

“All of our athletes have been standing out in all the competitions where they attend and are accumulating points for their qualifications for the Games in San Salvador, as well as for the Pan American Games in Chile this year,” said Correa.

It is recalled that in 2003, the world record was set by the Mexican Ana Guevara in 300 meters before the surprise defeat of the 100-meter record holder, the American Tim Montgomery, marked the first Grand Prix of athletics held in the Mexican capital.

In front of more than 50,000 people who came to see her run against Freeman, Olympic champion of the 400 meters in Sydney, Ana Guevara grew and broke the world record for the 300 meters with a time of 35.30 seconds.

Guevara, in 2003, improved by 16 hundredths the time of 35.46 seconds that the British Kathy Cook maintained as the best mark in the world since August 18, 1984, and incidentally the Mexican surpassed her best mark for this distance.
