Several Caribbean juniors showed why they’re some of the most promising in the sport over the weekend at the CARIFTA Track and Field Championships.
Among the highlights, Jamaica’s Christopher Taylor — one of the most prominent names in regional track — won the under-14 boys 400-metre dash, taking it in a time of 47.36 seconds.
Jamaica’s discus thrower Philippe Barnett set a new record in the under-18 division of the event. His only legal throw came in at 60.44 metres, nearly 10-metres better than the previous record.
In the boys under-20 200-metres, Trinidad and Tobago’s Akanni Hislop crossed the line first in 20.89 seconds.
