In the men’s 110-metre hurdles, 18-year old Rasheem Brown finished 5th overall out of six hurdlers with a time of 14.97 seconds. He did not advance to the finals.

“I didn’t run the way I wanted to, I didn’t achieve a personal best. I wasn’t my time to have that perfect race. As usual, I got an amazing start. However, approaching the first hurdle, I hit it, second hurdle, I also hit. I didn’t recover, and third hurdle I stumbled, but held my composure and finished strong.”

Beach Volleyball

Playing at Puerto de Oro, Cayman’s Marissa Harrison and Ileann Powery engaged in a hard-fought battle with their St. Lucia, winning in straight sets 21-17, 21-19, to win the match. The men’s team, however, were not as fortunate. Casey Santamaria and Nathan Dack fell to the Barbados team 15-21, 15-21. Both teams did not make it to the semi-finals but will continue to play for overall placements.
