BYDGOSZCZ, Poland:
Jamaica ended the fourth day of competition on a good note at the World Under-20 Championships in Bydgoszcz, Poland as Nigel Ellis finished third taking the bronze in the boys' 200 metres final.

Jamaica ends the day with two medals and four overall.

Ellis, running out of lane eight, ran the curve very swiftly, keeping his form well to take third.

The United States, Michael Norman Jr won the gold in a Championships record of 20.17 seconds with South Africa's Tiotlisa Leotela finishing second for silver in 20.59 seconds.
