UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

T&T’s Olympic medallist Lalonde Gordon sprinted to victory again this weekend, clocking 20.78 seconds to take the 200 metres at the John Thomas Terrier Invitational at Boston University in the USA on Saturday.

Gordon is having the best start to his indoor season sealing wins in his first four races including 300m dash at the New Balance Games in New York on January 24 (32.83) and the 200m events at both the Staten Island’s Great Dane on January 16 (20.77) and Villanova Open on January 8 (20.99) invitationals in New York. He holds the meet record in the event, 20.58, which he achieved in 2012.

Sprinter Zakiya Denoon continued her dominance in the 200 metres winning in 23.64 on Friday at the same meet. The Munroe College freshman set a new school record surpassing the previous mark of 24.10 which she accomplished on January 16 at the Great Dane Invitational.

At that meet, Denoon finished second overall in the 60m dash in 7.39 which took her spot atop the NJCAA National Descending Order List in both events and qualified her for the NJCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships in the process.

Denoon was named the NJCAA National Player of the Week by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, that week. She later combined with Ariane Struckey, Denesha Ransome and Breaisha to place 11th in the 4x400 relay in 3:48.02.

T&T’s Mark London was tested on Saturday and was successful at the Penn State National Invitational at University Park in Pennsylvania. The distance runner clocked 1:50.57 seconds to place second overall and moved to first place amongst Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Indoor Track and Field rankings.

London, a sophomore at Coppin State University, had a day before partnered with Ronaldo Ball, Michael James, and Alaric Coker to place fourth overall in the distance medley team in 10:03.41, recording the top time in the MEAC.

Field athlete Deandra Daniel also improved on her current MEAC ranking, when she finished fourth in the women’s high jump event. Daniel, a senior at Coppin State, leaped a season-best mark of 1.79 metres. She is currently ranked second on the MEAC Indoor list in the high jump competition.

Freshmen Khemani Roberts also competed in the high jump event and placed 15th in 1.63m. Steve Waithe’s effort of 15.57m was good enough to earn him fifth spot in the triple jump event. The day before, Waithe was 11th in the long jump event, with a best attempt of 6.92m.

Back on the track, Haysean Cowie-Clarke reached as far as the semifinals in the Men’s 60m, crossing in 6.95. In the preliminary heats, he finished in 6.94
