Fred Kerley is now the talk of town with his fans expressing worry due to his current form that has seen him lose three consecutive races.

Fans are concerned following Fred Kerley’s third successive loss of the season at the Jamaica Athletics Invitational on Saturday, May 11.

The 2022 World 100m champion once again finished second in the 200m race behind Great Britain’s Zharnel Hughes who won the race in 19.96. Kerley finished second in a time of 20.17 seconds with Frenchman Pablo Mateo completing the podium after clocking 20.20 seconds.

This is Kerley’s third successive defeat following his two Diamond League unceremonious exits where he did not win a single race. He started his Diamond League campaign at the meeting in Xiamen where he finished second behind Christian Coleman.

Kerley then proceeded to the Diamond League Meeting in Suzhou/Shanghai where he finished third behind South Africa’s Akani Simbine who won the race and Coleman who finished second.
