Ristananna Tracey won Jamaica’s third medal at the 2017 IAAF World Championships in London on Thursday.

Tracey posted a lifetime best of 53.74 seconds to win the bronze medal in the women’s 400-metre hurdles.

After finding herself in fourth place in the last 50 metres of the race, Tracey found a higher hear to move ahead of Czech athlete Zuzana Hejnova to earn a third place finish.

 American athletes Kori Carter (53.07) and Dalilah Muhammad (53.50), won gold and silver respectively.

It was smooth sailing for Tracey prior to the final having won her semifinal heat  in 54.79 on Tuesday to qualify for the final.

She earlier won her heat to book a semifinal spot with a time of  54.92. Jamaica’s other medals came courtesy of Usain Bolt, who won bronze in the men’s 100m and Omar McLeod, who took gold in the men’s 110-metre hurdles.
