Aaron Brown shatters Atlee Mahorn's Canadian 200m record
Clocking of 20.16 seconds is tied for 5th fastest in world this season
Aaron Brown has laid claim to one of the oldest records on the Canadian track and field books.
The 22-year-old from Toronto ran 20.16 seconds to win the 200 metres at the NCAA West Championships on Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark., breaking Atlee Mahorn's 23-year-old national record by one one-hundredth of a second.
Brown's time is tied for fifth fastest in the world this season. It came a day after he won the 100 metres in 10.12, the fastest by a Canadian this season.
The senior for the USC Trojans will compete in his final NCAA meet June 11-14 in Eugene, Ore.
Brown was a member of Canada's 4x100 relay that won bronze at last summer's world championships in Moscow.
