Interested also to see one of Ato's newest charges Kelsha Fortune in action.

Where did you get info that Kelsha Fortune was running at the 2017 T&T Carifta Trials?
For all you know Kels may already be 20 years old or alternatively may not yet have a T&T passport to officially allow her to Rep 868 at an International Track & Field Meet.

She was on the start list initially but then I guess once it was updated she was taken off of it.

Some of the juniors will be competing this weekend for Carifta spots. I believe Jenae Spinx will get an opportunity to tryout for the Carifta Games. Plus Rae Ann Serville will try the 200m after last week's mishap. I think Jenae and Rae Ann will push each other to impressive 200m times.. Stay tuned

I hope so. I'm excited to see that. Our U 18 sprints are deep!

Kelsha's DOB is 10-4-98 (same as Sarah Wollaston's) and she has a TNT passport, having competed before at JR Champs/Carifta Trials. That wasn't the problem. The problem is that she got hurt the week before Trials, and even though she wanted to run, I overruled it because I could see the leg wasn't anywhere close to ready yet.
I also kept my 14-year-old phenom, Briana Williams, who was scheduled to be running as a guest, out, because she had PR'ed 4 times in 7 days (11.9, 11.8, then 11.7, 11.66 to make the Jamaican under-18 Carifta team two weekends ago) but she rebounded today with a PR 24.12 the 4th fastest time in US high schools for 2017.

Thanks for clearing that up AB. Keep up the good work with the girls. Btw what are Kelsa's times?

What you think about these 4 juniors coming up.. Serville, Smith Spinx and Colthurst? They have real potential. .

The TT female Hep athlete is about to smash the NJR and Carifta record. She came first in every event. Her results would have placed her with a few medals if she competed for the events separately. Impressive.

TYRA GITTENS UPDATE

In her 6th event this morning Tyra unfortunately fouled all her 3 attempts in the Javelin throw and scored 0 points in that event as a result. However she is still in gold medal position but needs to win her final event this evening (800m) to still secure gold so the pressure is on.

Tyra Gittens was on course to set a new Carifta record in the Heptathlon but after those 3 fouls in the Javelin throw this morning I don't think a new Carifta record for her is still possible even if she manages to win the final event (800m) and still wins the gold medal as many folks were predicting. I think the current Carifta record is 5231 pts set by Ayesha Champagnie of Jamaica in 2015 at the Carifta Games in St Kitts.

Lets wish Tyra good luck in her Final event, the 800m, this evening!

Tyra Gittens was on course to set a new Carifta record in the Heptathlon but after those 3 fouls in the Javelin throw this morning I don't think a new Carifta record for her is still possible even if she manages to win the final event (800m) and still wins the gold medal as many folks were predicting. I think the current Carifta record is 5231 pts set by Ayesha Champagnie of Jamaica in 2015 at the Carifta Games in St Kitts.

Lets wish Tyra good luck in her Final event, the 800m, this evening!

There is some bad coaching here if she was not advised to at least get her last jump in for points rather than winning the jump. That would have at least secured her position. It is important to first win and hope for records after.
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!

In this interview she said she is from Trinidad & Tobago but live in Tennessee so I am assuming she was born in T&T

We already did better than last year. Last year was terrible

Session five here at Carifta 2017 is over. With one session to go, the T&T count is five gold medals, four silver and six bronze. Already, the 2017 performance has bettered 2016's three gold medals, two silver and nine bronze.
