The A&T sprinter beat out speedsters from Arkansas, Alabama and LSU to clock her time.

A&T track star Kayla White clocks world’s fastest time in 200m

We knew Kayla White was fast coming into the indoor track season, but the A&T star showed us she has world-class speed.

White ran a 22.82 at the University of Arkansas’ Tyson Invitational, which gave her the fastest time in the world in 2019.

The 5’7 senior from Miami, Florida dominated the MEAC Track and Field Championships last year, winning outdoor titles in the 100m, 200m, 100mh and 4×100. She beat out sprinters from LSU, Arkansas and Alabama on Saturday.

“She’s special,” Duane Ross, N.C. A&T’s director of track and field programs said following White’s run. “She was due to drop something fast. Her training has been going well and she’s hungry to be the best. I knew the race was won once she stepped into the blocks. Her focus and preparation were great this weekend.”
