UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

National sprint queen Michelle Lee Ahye continued her domination of the track with gold in the 200m final yesterday at the NAAA National Senior Championships which came to an end at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo.

 

Ahye, fresh off her national record- breaking run in the 100m final on Saturday, blew away the field to clinch the sprint double yesterday. Ahye controlled the half-lap race from start to finish, crossing the finish line without challengers in 22.50. Her time was good enough to book her spot at the World Championships in London later this year. Coming in a distant second was Kayelle Clarke (22.97) while Semoy Hackett (23.07) followed in third. All three set World standard times.

In the men’s equivalent, it was Abilene Wildcats 1-2-3 with Jereem Richards (20.15), Kyle Greaux (20.19) and Dan-Nei Telesford (20.50) rounding out the medal positions respectively.

Reigning 100m champ Emmanuel Callender came in fifth in a time of 20.65.

It was a disappointing weekend for former World 400m hurdles champion Jehue Gordon who finished out of the medals in his pet event yesterday. Gordon ran slower than he did in the preliminaries, stopping the clock at 52.48 to place fifth.

Dominican Republic’s Juander Santos took the win in a fast 49.26 to qualify for the World Championships later this year. Puerto Rico’s Eric Alejandro (49.90) and Kern Alexis of Memphis Pioneers (50.52) were second and third respectively.

In the women’s shot put, Toco TAFAC’s Portious Warren threw to the gold with a 15.42m heave.

In second place was club-mate Cherisse Murray (14.43m) while Falcons’ Chelsea James (14.00m) was third.

Fans at the stadium got the opportunity to see the man whose name stands on the facility, Hasely Crawford, in a 10m race with NAAA president Ephraim Serrette. Warming up profusely for the race at age 66, Crawford showed he still knows his way around the track against his 59 year old opponent. And while there may have been a false start, fans with their cellphones out were happy to capture the fun moment.
