UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Trinidad and Tobago beach volleyballers Chelsi Ward and Malika Davidson advanced to the round of 24 while  athlete Akanni Hislop qualified for the Men's 200m A final when the Nanjing 2014 Youth Olympic Games continued in the southern Chinese city yesterday.
Despite losing their last group E game against Bolivia in two straight sets (2-0-21-14, 21-12),  the T&T pair finished in fourth spot in their grouping, after China lost to Germany in straight sets to qualify for the next stage of the competition at the Youth Olympic Sports Park.
At the Nanjing Olympic Sport Stadium, Hislop was third in heat one of three of  the Men's 200m event,  crossing the line in 21.42 seconds behind the USA's Noah Lyles 20.71 and Japan's Jun Yamashita (21.11),  both recording personal bests.
Hislop bolted from lane five and was on pace but Lyles and Yamashita handle the bend better and held their form and stride to the finish. Hislop occupied the eighth and final qualifying position for the Men's 200 m A final which will run off Sunday.
It was another day of no races for Trinidad and Tobago's young sailor Abigail Affoo at Jinniu Lake,  plagued by no winds.

Also today,  Memphis Pioneer hurdler Jeminise Parris,  currently ranked fourth, will vy for precious metal in the A finals of the Women' 100​m hurdles.
