UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Khalifa St Fort turned in a dominant performance to win gold in the Girls U20 100m dash on Saturday night at the 2016 CARIFTA Games, St Georges, Grenada.

The 17-year-old stopped the clock at 11.40 seconds, well ahead of Patrice Moody of Jamaica (11.68) and Brianne Bethel of Bahamas (11.75).

St Fort, who turned pro this week after accepting an endorsement contract, is coached by T&T sprint legend Ato Boldon.

However, St Fort’s success was the only blot on the page on an otherwise perfect night for Jamaica.

Jamaica’s Kimone Shaw won the Girl’s U18 100m title, while Jhevaughn Matherson took the Boys U18 100m gold medal.

Jamaica also won the U20 Boys 100m with Nigel Ellis posting a blistering 10.16, beating defending champion Mario Burke of Barbados into second place.

Despite Jamaica’s dominance, the evening session on day one was a profitable one for Trinidad and Tobago with Adell Colthrust taking bronze in the Boys 100 meter dash U18.

Mitchell Onal also copped bronze in the Boys 400m dash U18, while Chelsea James snapped up bronze, competing in the Girls Shot Put U20.

Colthrust finished in the Boys U18 100m with a time of 10.66, just behind second-placed Dejour Russell of Jamaica (10.60).

Gold medalist Matherson of Jamaica turned in a time of 10.42 seconds.

Onal was third in the Boy’s 400m behind Christopher Taylor of Jamaica (47.36) and Antoni Hoyte-Small of Barbados.

In the Girl’s Shot Put, James’ throw of 13.66 came on her third attempt, as was the medal winning throws of winner Janelle Fullerton of Jamaica (14.52m) and her compatriot Sahjay Stevens (13.74), who took silver.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Renee Stoddard (56.14) finished 7th in the Girl’s U20 400m, well behind winner Sada Williams of Barbados (52.07).

Earlier in the day, Tariq Horsford won gold in the Boys U20 Javelin and Ianna Roach captured silver in the Girl’s U18 shot put with a throw of 14.49m.
