Tima Godbless made her collegiate outdoor debut with a bang, running 11.24 seconds (+0.7 m/s) to win the 100m event at the Keyth Talley Invitational at the Bernie Moore Track Stadium on Saturday.

She ran 11.43 last year as her personal season’s best albeit it was enough for her to clinch the African U20 Championship gold in Ndola, Zambia.

Godbless was also in the Louisiana State University, LSU women’s 4×100-meter relay team that clocked a nation-leading time of 43.43 seconds to win the event,
shaving .64 seconds off last weekend’s time.
