UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Veracruz

The Trinidad and Tobago women’s hockey team opened their Central American and Caribbean Games campaign with a solid 5-0 win over Bermuda at the High Performance Centre in Veracruz, Mexico yesterday.
After the opening ceremony Friday night, the first set of sports got underway yesterday, the official first day of competition at the quadrennial games.
In their opening Pool B match, T&T started with a 5-0 shutout of Bermuda with Kristin Thompson (30th), Kayla Brathwaite (35th), Dana-Lee De Gannes (45th), Brianna Govia (47th) and veteran Oire Trotman (51st) doing the business. Their next assignment is an encounter with Guyana tomorrow at 4 p.m.TT time.
At the Leyes de Reforma Aquatic Center, T&T’s Kristin Julien was expected to swim out of lane one of the women’s 50m backstroke last night after qualifying with the sevent fastest time.
Julien, a multiple Carifta medallist, placed third in heat one of two when she clocked 30.78 seconds. She was third in that heat behind Colomba’s Isbella Arcila and Guatemala’s Gisela Morales who both tied with 29.65. In the second heat, Maria Gonzales of Mexico used home crowd advantage to power to a new CAC record when she posted 28.77 seconds, with Carlina Colorado of Colombia second in (29.58) and Venezuela’s Jeserik Pinto third (29.79).
At the El Lecero Police Academy, T&T shooters failed to qualify for the final in the Men’s Individual 50m rifle shooting competition.
T&T’s best performer was experienced campaigner Roger Daniel, who finished 10th while teammates Rhodney Allen and Clement Marshall ended 20th and 27th respectively.
At the Tuxpan Canoeing Complex, T&T’s Matthew Robinson finished eighth and last in the Men’s Kayak Single K1 1000m competition. Robinson teamed up with Sherlon Pierre to finish 6th of seven in the Men’s K2 1000m race.
And in table tennis, the T&T women’s team lost one tie before winning another.
Colombia defeated them 3-1 with Rhean Chung being the only success, defeating Angie Umbacia in straight sets (11-9,11-8,11-8). They then galloped over Jamaica for a 3-0 shut out in their second Group 2 encounter.
T&T’s men were involved in a tie with Mexico and were scheduled to play Cuba later last night.
