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. .

Thanks for the info update Ato. That was most helpful. :thumbsup:
