UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

T&T quartermiler Lalonde Gordon braved severe cold weather to not only compete in the men’s 300 metres dash but win the event at the New Balance Games in New York which was postponed to Sunday.

A snow storm had threatened to cancel the event on Saturday but instead the organisers pushed the professional section of the meet back a day.

Gordon, who is signed with Nike, won comfortably in a time of 32.83 seconds in a race that also included fellow T&T runner Adrian Crichlow. He placed sixth in 35.52. Gordon holds the meet record of 32.64, which he established last year. Both Gordon and Crichlow have been very active since the start of the indoor season.

Gordon has been the more successful of the duo, winning the 200m events at both the Staten Island’s Great Dane (January 16) and Villanova Open (Jan 8) invitationals. He clocked 20.77 in the former event but ran a slower time of 20.99 in the latter. Crichlow’s times of 22.35 and 22.20 earned him 17th and seventh in the respective events.

Tasting success this weekend also, was T&T jumper Deandra Daniel at the New York City (NYC) Gotham Cup. Daniel, a senior at Coppin State University, was second in the women’s high jump event, leaping 1.75 metres to finish behind New York Athletic Club’s Priscilla Frederick (1.80m).

Mark London, also of Coppin State, just missed out on reaching podium in the 1,000m race. The sophomore was fourth in a time of 2.29.62 at the NYC event.

His team-mate as well as countryman Haysean Cowie-Clarke, a junior a Coppin State, was 10th in the Men’s 60m in 6.92. Another T&T sprinter Andre Marcano of CPTC New Balance also competed in that event and his time of 6.83 earned him fifth place.

Cowie-Clarke also lined up in the 200m race and had the 18th fastest time of 22.64.
