UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

T&T's Marc Burn made a successful return to the track on Sunday, winning a silver medal in the men's 60 metres at the KMS Invitational at the Birmingham Metro CrossPlex in Birmingham, Alabama in the United States.

The local sprinter crossed in 6.78 seconds in the dash to follow Mateo Edwards (Unattached) to the line in 6.74. Third was Jailen Bell of Jackson State University in 6.80.

In the preliminaries, Burns clocked 6.85 to advance to the final with the third fastest time behind Edward (6.80) and Bell (6.82), respectively.

His national relay teammate Emmanuel Callender was not his best on Saturday evening and finished 25th in the men's 400 metres event at the Queens Grace Jackson Track Meet at National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.

Callender of Swept Track Club, who entered as the reigning champion having won the one-lap race last year in 47.74 seconds, clocked 49.85.

Last week, the T&T sprinter placed fourth in heat one of the timed final in 48.46 seconds, finishing ninth overall at the McKenley-Wint Track and Field Classic at Calabar High School also in Kingston.

Then he bagged a bronze medal in the men’s 60m in 6.69 seconds to place behind Elite Performance pair Andrew Fisher (6.64) and Nigel Ellis (6.65), respectively.

On the College circuit, Asa Guevara of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) picked up a silver in the men's 400m at the Texas Tech Classic. He crossed in 46.77.

In Phoenix, Arizona, Cherisse Murray of Central Arizona dominated proceedings on the field at the Puma Indoor Invitational and Multi in Paradise Valley Community Centre, copping two gold medals.

Murray's throw of 15.92m earned her the top position on the podium in the shot put event. She returned to the spot in the weight throw with her best effort measuring 14.71.

Her schoolmate Jeminise Parris faced the starter in the women's 60m hurdles but did not finish.

On the final day at the Bob Pollock Invitational at Clemson University Indoor Complex in South Carolina, Mauricia Prieto and her University of Alabama (UAB) relay team placed fifth in the 4x400m in 3:41.57.

This followed her ninth place finish in the 200m in a time of 24.09, just missing out on a spot in the final on Saturday. Reyare Thomas (Unattached) was 11th in 24.23.

On the final day at the Razorback Invitational in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Zakiya Denoon of Louisiana State University (LSU) took home a bronze in the women's 4x400m relay with a 3:34.90-clocking. She also competed in the 60m dash and was 13th in 7.41 and 11th the 200m (23.61).

Akanni Hislop ran in the men's versions of those races placing 13th in the 60m (6.94), fourth in 200m (21-16) and his LSU team was eighth in the 4x400m relay (3:14.17)
