UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

T&T quartermiler Lalonde Gordon had to settle for second place in the men’s 400 metres event at the 109th NYRR Millrose Games in Manhattan, New York, yesterday while Michelle-Lee Ahye just missed out on finishing among the top three finishers in the 60m dash at the IAAF World Indoor Tour in Glasgow.

Gordon, a double bronze Olympic medallist, completed the race in 45.51 seconds behind Grenadian Bralon Taplin (45.35) in a tight finish. Taplin is the world leader in the men's 400m when he ran 45.20 seconds last month. Third was Adidas’ David Verburg in 46.27.

At the Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix, Ahye placed fourth in 7.16. Dutch sprinter Dafne Schippers won with a stadium record of 7.10. Second was Jamaican Elaine Thompson in 7.14 and Ewa Swoboda of Poland was third in 7.15. Ahye had placed second the heats, clocking 7.14 to follow Schippers (7.11) to the line.

The local sprinter is coming off a second place finish in the women’s 200m at the Globen Galan, another IAAF World Indoor Tour meeting in Stockholm on Wednesday. Jeneba Tarmoh of the United States won, finishing in 23.38, a hundredth of a second ahead of Ahye, with 2013 world youth champion Irene Ekelund third in 24.05.
