Cayman “indicated interest” in hosting 2019 CARIFTA track championships

The Cayman Islands may once again play host to the largest junior track and field meet in the Caribbean.

Sports Minister Hon. Osbourne Bodden on Friday (1 April) said Cayman’s athletics stars may soon not have to travel to attend the CARIFTA Track and Field Championships. He made the comments at a press conference celebrating Cayman’s 2016 CARIFTA swimming and track and field medalists.

“We put ourselves forward — we’ve indicated our interest, anyway — in hosting CARIFTA in 2019,” Bodden said. “And I’m sure that a lot of you are young enough and will be a part of that team.”

Cayman last hosted the event in 2010.

A Sports Ministry spokesperson tells Cayman 27 there are still several more steps before the country will be confirmed to host.
