Top Junior female sprinter Khalifa St Fort and Carifta standout Jeron Thompson doubled up on their awards when they added the First Citizens Youth Female and Male awards respectively to their trophy cabinet.

Exactly one month ago, the pair collected the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) Junior Female and Male awards at the TTOC’s end-of-year awards ceremony.

Friday night at the First Citizens Youth Awards at Hyatt Regency, they were again bestowed with the top junior awards after the 43 nominees had been whittled down to a field of the top 12 athletes.

St Fort (track and field) and Thompson (swimming) emerged from the group of 12 that included Tyler Cole and Kollyn St George (cycling), Sachin Kumar and Ysabelle Lawrence (golf), Christian Marsden and Amira Pilgrim (swimming), Gabrielle Wood (judo), Salisha Rahim (powerlifting) and Aaron Wilson (table tennis).
