UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

T&T’s Un­der-18 Girls’ and Un­der-19 Boys’ will play for bronze medals in the Caribbean Zon­al Vol­ley­ball As­so­ci­a­tion (CA­ZO­VA) Youth (Un­der-19 and Un­der-18) Cham­pi­onships to­day.

The lo­cal girls will meet US Vir­gin Is­lands at the G.C Fos­ter Col­lege Phys­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion and Sports Cen­tre in St Cather­ine, Ja­maica, from 1 pm.

Win­ners of the first three stag­ings of the com­pe­ti­tion in 2007, 20012 and 2013, T&T's young women came up short in a bid to con­test a fourth gold medal af­ter los­ing out to un­beat­en Suri­name 14-25, 13-25, 21-15 in their semi­fi­nal at the same venue yes­ter­day.

In the fi­nal, which serves off from 3 pm, Suri­name will come up against reign­ing cham­pi­ons Bar­ba­dos, af­ter the lat­ter dis­patched US Vir­gin Is­lands 25-13, 25-16, 16-25, 25-13 in their semi­fi­nal

On Thurs­day night in the quar­ter­fi­nals, T&T, bronze medal win­ners in 2015 and USVI ad­vanced to the se­mi-fi­nals with wins over Ja­maica and Guade­loupe re­spec­tive­ly.

T&T de­feat­ed Ja­maica 25-22, 25-17, 25-13 and USVI over­came Guade­loupe 25-21, 25-10, 20-25, 25-15.

Last night, the T&T Un­der-19 boys met Ja­maica with both teams locked on 1-2 win-loss records and al­ready as­sured of meet­ing to­day again for the bronze medal from 11 am.

This af­ter de­fend­ing cham­pi­on Bar­ba­dos swept USVI 3-0 to end the lat­ter's chances of sneak­ing in­to the fourth spot. US Vir­gin Is­lands went in­to the match with a 0-3 mark and need­ed a win to have any chance of over­haul­ing T&T or Ja­maica for the fourth spot.

In the fi­nal to­day, Bar­ba­dos (4-0) and Suri­name (3-1) will do bat­tle from 5 pm with the Ba­jans start­ing as favourites af­ter win­ning their round-robin clash 10-25, 25-22, 25-13, 25-21.

The tour­na­ment is serv­ing as the first round of the Un­der-18 Girls’ and Un­der-19 Boys’ FIVB World Cham­pi­onships qual­i­fi­ca­tion, with the win­ners of the tour­na­ments ad­vanc­ing to the sec­ond round in Au­gust 2020 in Puer­to Ri­co and USA re­spect­ful­ly.
