Wearing US colours, Davis was crowned 2007 world youth (under-18) champion in the men’s 110 metres hurdles in 13.18 seconds – a world under-18 record.
Two years later, Davis travelled to T&T, where he established a new world under-20 record in the event at the Pan American Junior Championships, striking gold for the US in 13.08 seconds.
In August last year, Davis made the switch, and is now a T&T athlete. He is 20, and no longer in the junior ranks. His best legal run over the men’s hurdle-height is 13.37 seconds. The new national record was produced on May 13, in Kansas, USA, the clocking earning the Texas A&M University student gold at the Big 12 Conference Championships.
Davis went on to claim silver at the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division 1 Outdoor Track and Field Championships, in Iowa, and gold at the T&T Championships in Port of Spain.
