Cayman Islands athletes came away with seven medals in all over the weekend at the 2016 CARIFTA Track and Field Championships, in Grenada.
Lacee Barnes and Dominic Dyer each won a pair of medals.
“Unlike (Friday) in the shot put, I was very unsettled because I made the placement throw on my last attempt,” she said afterward.
Daneliz Thomas won the under-18 girls javelin throw on the third day. She won it with her final throw, which traveled a distance of 45.97 metres.
“The feeling is very overwhelming,” said Thomas afterward, pointing out she missed out on a medal last year after taking home hardware in each of her first two meets.
Jamal Walton took home silver on day one of the meet. He placed second in the boys under-20 400-metres with a time of 46.23 seconds, a World Junior Championships qualifying time.
“Coming into the race and a final, kind of nervous but you’ve got to fight it,” Walton said. “I came out here and did my best.”
Rasheem Brown rounded things out with a bronze medal in the boys under-18 110-metre high hurdles. He crossed the line in 14.05 seconds.
