Brisbane teenager beats Raelene Boyle record and claims title of Australia’s fastest woman
Torrie Lewis took 0.01s off the previous 11.11s record held by Melissa Breen for nearly a decade, and also smashed Boyle’s 1968 under-20s record
Sprint sensation Torrie Lewis has become Australia’s fastest woman, running the 100m in 11.10s.
Competing at the ACT Under 20 & Open Championships on Saturday, the 19-year-old from Brisbane overtook the previous 11.11s record, which was held by Melissa Breen for nearly a decade. She was well clear of the U20 record of 11.20s set by Raelene Boyle in 1968.
