UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Women footballers in 1-1 draw with Haiti

RHEANN Chung made an impressive start in her bid to earn precious metal at the 2014 Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games in Veracruz, Mexico, when she notched up two consecutive victories as singles action in the table tennis competition served off at the Omega Complex, yesterday.
Chung faced the Dominican Republic’s Karla Britto in her first match and won in straight sets 11-5, 11-4, 11-7, before returning to dispose of Andrea Montufar of Guatemala, also in straight sets, 11-3, 11-8, 11-6. Her teammates Ashely Quashie and Catherine Spicer did not fare as well as Quashie suffered a straight set loss to Melanie Diaz of Puerto Rico, 5-11, 5-11, 2-11 and Spicer went under by a 1-3 margin to Venezuela’s Wimberly Montero, 5-11, 8-11, 11-8, 9-11.
In the men’s draw, Dexter St Louis was beaten 5-11, 6-11, 7-11, by Cuba’s Jorge Campo in his first match. But he would use his experience to rebound well in defeating 18-year-old Erick Aviles of El Salvador, three sets to one, 6-11, 11-3, 13-11, 11-1, to stay in the hunt.
Aaron Wilson drew Michael Hyatt of Jamaica and he won 3-2 (7-11;4-11;11-5; 11-9; 11-7), while Curtis Humphreys was waiting to play his first match against Guatemala’s Hector Gatica. First round action in the men’s and women’s doubles competition serves off today at 10.00 a.m.
Trinidad and Tobago’s national women’s football team opened its Group A campaign with a 1-1 draw against Haiti at the Hugo Sanchez Sport Complex. Fielding a team that saw several players who participated in the World Cup qualifying campaign being rested,
T&T would fall behind when Haitian defender Roselord Borgella beat goalkeeper Tinesha Palmer in the 27th minute. However, midfielder Patrice Campbell would find the back of the net in the 51st minute of play to ensure T&T took a share of the spoils.
Across in the pool, David Mcleod finished fourth in heat 2 of the men’s 100m backstroke in 59.12 seconds. Venezuela’s Albert Subirats topped the field in 57.14 with his countryman Robinson Molina second in 57.86 and Armando Barrera of Cuba, third in 57.93. Joshua McLeod fared a little better in finishing third in heat 3 of the men’s 50m butterfly in 24.47 seconds.
And in canoe competition, Satyam Maharaj was seventh in the men’s K1 200m final in a time of one minute, 00:99 seconds. Gold was won by Cuba’s Fidel Vargas in 40.658 with Antonoi Oropeza of Venezuela capturing silver in 45.790 and Mexico’s Santos Marroquin Uribe, bronze in 46.748.
Up to press time, T&T’s trio of Quincy Alexander, Jude Codrington and Kwesi Browne were set ride off against Edgar Verdugo, Reuben Horta and Roberto Serrano of Mexico in men’s team sprint cycling action at the Xalapa Velodrome.
And the national women’s hockey team had their previously scheduled 1 p.m. match delayed.
