National 400m record holder goes pro

National 400 metre champion and record holder Nickisha Pryce has signed a professional contract with sportswear giants Puma. The 23 year old quarter-miler is also now being represented by P-Sports Agency. She completed her senior year at the University of Arkansas in the United States recently.

Pryce set a new national record of 48.89 seconds to win the 400 metres at the NCAA Division 1 Championships in June, breaking the 22-year-old Jamaican record of 49.30 seconds set by Lorraine Fenton in 2002.

Pryce, the 2023 World Championship semi-finalist, also defended her title in the 400 metres at the just-concluded National Championships at the National Stadium where she clocked 50.01 seconds to win the event.
