UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Browne, Alexander, St Louis, Humphreys cop more bronze for T&T

Dorian Alexander fought his way to secure T&T’s second bronze medal, when he defeated Costa Rica’s Carlos Solis in the quarterfinals of the Men’s Under 68kg Taekwondo, at the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games in Veracruz, Mexico.

Though he trailed 1-2 in the first round, Alexander took control over his Central American opponent from the next round by outscoring his opponent 5-1 before winning the third, 6-2, with several single point offensive kicks to Solis’s body. Solis actually did not score any points for the entire fight, only gain points off Alexander’s eight Kyong-gos (warning penalty, in Taekwondo two Kyong-go’s committed awards the opposition a point).
It was a different story for Alexander against Mexico’s Isaac Torres, scoring his only point of the fight in the first round. Torres executed two impressive back kicks as Alexander eventually lost 12-1. Torres went on to take silver, losing to Dominican Republic’s Ruddy Mateo 10-8 in the finals.
Meanwhile, cyclist Kwesi Browne added a third bronze to T&T’s medal tally when he copped third spot in the men’s Keirin late on Tuesday. Colombia’s Fabiano Hernando Puerta copped the gold while Hersony Canelon of Venezuela bagged silver.
Varun Maharajh topped the field in the men’s omnium scratch before going on to record a time of four minutes, 41.024 seconds for the fourth fastest time in the individual pursuit. He was carded to ride in the Elimination event at 8.00 p.m. while Emile Abraham was in the lineup for the men’s points race at 7.00 p.m.
And the table tennis pair of Dexter St Louis and Curtis Humphreys earned men’s doubles bronze after they were beaten 6-11, 7-11, 9-11, by Puerto Rico’s Brian Afanadour and Daniel Gonzalez in their semi-final matchup. The Puerto Ricans had to eventually settle for silver after they were defeated 12-10, 8-11, 6-11, 9-11, in the championship match by Marcos Madrid and Salvador Uribe of Mexico.
In women’s round of 16 singles action, Ashley Quashie bowed out to Puerto Rico’s Daniely Rios, 7-11, 5-11, 5-11, 6-11, while Rheann Chung won a tough five-set duel with Analdy Lopez of Guatemala by a 4-1 margin to progress to the final eight. Chung prevailed 12-10, 4-11, 11-6, 13-11, and 14-12.
In hockey action, T&T’s women had to settle for a 2-2 draw against the Dominican Republic (DR) after Blair Wynne had given them the lead in the sixth minute. Two goals in the eighth and 20th minutes by Benifer Moronta saw the DR forge ahead but Alanna Lewis hit back with a 31st minute strike to grab a share of the points for T&T.
And in the pool, George Bovell splashed into the final of the men’s 50m backstroke when he finished second in heat two in a time of 26.65 seconds with Venezuela’s Molina Robinson winning in 26.33. David McLeod, despite finishing fourth in heat one in 26.81, earned a lane in the final as he produced the sixth faster qualifying time.
The national women’s basketball team were beaten 86-36 by Cuba with Afeisha Noel, 10 and Patrice Edwards, nine, were T&T top scorers while at press time the women’s footballers were down by a 6-0 scoreline to Mexico.
