UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

National junior track and field athlete Antonia Sealy currently sits in third position overall in the girls heptathlon 13-14 event after day one of the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Age Group Championships at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port-of-Spain, yesterday.

In the seven-event category, Sealy has earned 1920 points after the 80-metre dash, the long jump and the shot put. In the 80m dash Sealy finished 11th overall with a time of 10.46 seconds (712 points), but then had some strong performances in the field events to jump to third overall at the end of day one.

In the girl’s long jump, Sealy had a top leap of 5.31m to finish second in the event behind Barbadian Charissa Moore who disturbed the sand at the 5.33m mark. Sealy was second again in the shot put event with a top throw of 10.09m. On this occasion she finished behind St Lucian Julien Alfred (10.13m). Alfred leads the standings after three events with 2053 points, ahead of Barbadian Akayla Morris (1921 points) and Sealy (1920 points). Another T&T athlete Safiya John is 11th overall after three events among the 28 competitors.

Today the girl’s heptathlon will conclude with the 60m hurdles, high jump, ball throw and the 1000m race. In the boy’s 13-14 heptathlon, T&T’s Avindale Smith is third overall after the first event—the 80m dash. Other T&T athletes Jordan Pope and Daniel Qiu also made strong starts in the boys 11-12 pentathlon, finishing fourth and fifth respectively in the boys 60m dash.

Jamaican Terrique Stennett is ahead after two events in the boys 11-12 Pentathlon with 1548 points with the Bahamian duo of Davon Johnson (1536) and Izaiah Farrington (1486) behind. Stennett blazed to the fastest 60m clocking of 7.59 to take the second of four races with Johnson recording the third best time of 7.71 in winning section four. Farrington was ninth quickest (8.13) but made up ground in the high jump take second with a clearance of 1.54 with Stennett in joint sixth (1.45).

Johnson was fifth (1.48). Stennett’s compatriot Mekale Gordon was the best in the high jumper of the day with a leap of 1.59m. Jordan Pope (14th-1435) and Daniel Qiu (9th-1385) were in the top ten.

The boys 11-12 Pentathlon competitors also contested the ball throw on the first day while the boys and girls 13-14 entrants battled in the shot put.
