Keep an eye on Dwight St. Hillaire 200/400m runner.  He is at the University of Kentucky. He has the potential to join the 4x4 relay pool of Cedenio,, Richards and Lendore.  Solomon, Gordon and Quow getting up in age.

Love that Mr Richards is setting his goals and attaining/surpassing them.

I still say keep an eye out of Zakiya Denoon running at LSU this season. I feel her progress will be gradual but she can follow in the footsteps of KAB and MLA. My hope is that by next year for her senior year she will be in the 11.0's and 22's. And the she can join KAB in florida where KAB can take her under her wings. My ideal scenario.

8      Brenessa THOMPSON   JR   Texas A&M   23.63         2 (4)            

Kayelle Clarke asserting herself as a 200m specialist. Her start and flailing arm seems to hold her back in the 60/100 but in the 2 she thrives. Hoping to see her grow from strength to strength. Ever since that win in her final year at Carifta she seems to have gained confidence.

Anything, news on the World Indoor TF in England? Birmingham to be exact.

KAB 6th in the semi. MLA 6th in the final.

AG 5th in the semi. DL 2nd in the semi. Makes final.

Interesting developments in the womens 60m. ET 4th in the final. The two Ivorians win Gold and Silver in the 60m. Kambunji 3rd.

Another notable surprise.. Taplin dq in the first heat. He is 5th all time in the 400m. I was expecting him to get Gold.

Very shocking indeed. But it's his first year in this age category he may just need to adjust. May have had an early season injury too who knows. Let's just pray the issues get resolved so he can be back to his winning ways.

Keep an eye out for Shaniqua Bascombe the 13/14  year old girl who won the U17 100m 11.89 into -0.4. A nice tailwind and that's prob 11.70-11.75. She may just do the double.

An important point to note; At the recent concluded world indoor championships NO Caribbean athlete won a gold medal. Could this be a sign of new dismal phase in Caribbean T&F on the global stage? time will tell

BTW, the United States dominated the medal table and was far ahead from the rest of the world

Keep an eye out for Avindale Smith. He is the REAL deal. 200m and 400m specialist. Also a powerful 100m runner. Ran 10.45 at age 15 last year. Ran 47.90 to win the 400m this weekend. On the pace to be something special.

Rae Ann Serville is the real deal too.

Indoors is completely different to outdoor running.  you hardly ever find the same people winning both. for example, has Bolt ever run indoors or won an indoor medal? Its a banked track with sharp turns. I wouldn't worry too much about the results here.  Having said that, I am impressed with the return of Deon Lendore, which strengthens the 400 pool, but i am worried that Cedenio doesn't appear as strong and fast as he was two years ago. From my eyes, he appears over weight but that could be deceiving.

Cedenio is our tallest quarter-miler and has never done a full indoor season with his club so in addition to not being physically suited to running indoors he doesn't have as much experience running indoors as our other athletes who were selected for the 4x4 team in Birmingham. Also Cedenio being more conditioned and suited to running outdoors will tend to peak later in the outdoor season anyway.
Cedenio should be just fine provided he has put in the required winter/pre-season training.

Wow, not a single post. Actually, it is very disappointing on our part.  JA  28 Gold, Bahamas 6 Gold, TT 3 Golds. And I think this JA high school TF weekend. So their best is no at the Carifta. So how effective is TF grass-root programs.

Fyi Champs in Jamaica was last weekend, not this weekend.
And actually we won 4 gold medals, 6 silver & 7 bronze medals for a total of 17 medals.
On Day 1 we won 4 medals (2 gold, 0 silver, 2 bronze)
On Day 2 we won 6 medals (1 gold, 2 silver, 3 bronze)
On Day 3 we won 7 medals (1 gold, 4 silver, 2 bronze)

Our Boys U17 4x4 team got DQed for exchanging the baton outside of the exchange zone otherwise we would have won 1 more bronze medal for a total of 18 medals.
In addition Avindale Smith picked up a hip injury and did not start in the Boys U17 200m final where he was a strong contender to medal. Avindale was also withdrawn from our Boys U17 4x4 Relay team which would have been a strong contender for gold if he was healthy to run in the final as he was winner of the individual Boys U17 400m gold.
Adéll Colthrust the 2017 Carifta Boys U17 100m champion was also missing from our team due to injury.

Still we under-performed and won less medals than last year so it seems that we are going backwards rather than forwards.

Our main flaw was not fielding any athletes in about half the events rather than taking a leaf from Jamaica and trying to field athletes in as many events as possible. It seems that NAAA has a policy that if they believe an athlete is not a strong contender for gold then they don't want to send you to the Carifta Games and in this regard they don't seem to realize that the Carifta Games is the major development meet for young athletes in our region and the more athletes we can give the experience of competing against the best in the region is the more they can improve and then be able to come back stronger the following year to become stronger medal contenders.

Bahamas with 1/4 of T&T's population seem to understand that Carifta Games is a development meet which is why they are now reaping the fruits of their investment in their young athletes over the past number of years. Our NAAA seems to be very shortsighted in this regard and don't want to use Carifta as a development meet for our young athletes which it is.

I have heard the NAAA President Ephraim Serrette refer to the Carifta Games as the Olympics for our young athletes which clearly tells me that he has the totally wrong concept of what we should be using the Carifta Games for which is as a development meet for as many of our young talented athletes as we possible can.
If Mr Serrette does not understand how to use the Carifta Games to develop our young athletes to compete against the best young athletes in our region then all that he needs to do is to watch what Jamaica and The Bahamas are doing and to copy their development strategy. This should not be so difficult for him to figure out.

Socapro, thanks for the info. Congrats to the medal winners and those who participated in this weekend Carifta. While  as a former Carifta  partipant Emphraim may  see this as a mini Olympics, I agree with you, this a Developmental Games. I remember in one games not too long ago, there was a girls u-17 relay I think, where there were just 4 countries contesting. We were not one of them. We have over a million people and we can’t find yutes to partipate ? As you said, how come Bahamas can do it? For me, this is the main reason why we have never had a woman medal in the Olympics. You are correct. NAAA has to change its approach. We know money is always a problem. But we MUST continue to engage the govt, business and parents.  This is the point where We may have the last chance to influence some of our youths. After that is hit or miss. There is so much internal and external negative influences that can catch their attention. Anyway, let us see how the NAAA approach this next year.

I was flicking the tv channel and came up on the Diamond league in China. The 100 had Gatlin, Degrasse. The other American dude dropped out. Gatlin and Degrasse did not place. But was impressed with the Chinese sprinter who came second(he was given first, but VAR corrected that). The winner was a guy named Prescod from UK. He was in the outside and accelerated in the last 40 to pip the Chinese. It was 10. something. But it was raining and miserable, so I guess a lot of people did not want to overextend so early in the season. But the Brit say, he loved it. That is the kind of weather he was training in back home.

Our women's sprints seems to be increasing in depth. If Kayelle Clarke decides to compete as a professional athlete and can keep dropping her times that's a great addition to not only the 200 individual (just ran 22.82 pb at NCAA east prelims) but 4x100 too since she runs a solid 3rd leg. Zakiya Denoon just ran pbs 11.30 and 22.96 at the NCAA east prelims just hoping she continues to get better and better. She has shown steady improvement. If KAB can be her ever dependable self, MLA is healthy, Khalifa continues to improve. Then we just need one other solid leg together with a lot of practice to have a great shot at a medal. We have options now- Selvon, Hackett, Thomas, Durant, Denoon and Clarke...

  8 Durant, Kamaria     91 Simplex     

We are seeing the emergence of Zakiya Denoon at senior level, she ran an 11.21 PB in the heats. One more year at LSU and I believe she will be in the 11.0x range let's hope. That will be key for our relay. We need KAB back at her best though. Jenea Spinks again present in the 100m final bodes well for the future.

Excellent job by Andwuelle Wright for that 8.23m jump.

Kyle Greaux has great technique and I'm wishing him continued success. Wishing Keston Bledman a speedy recovery.

This is the games where the ones who are "overlooked" should excel. We will see?

Happy for the medals but Hackett can run much faster than 22.95, not sure if she will be happy with that silver

The relays will be interesting

Che, I was asking myself the same question.

That will be interesting to find out as Tyra Gittens was in bronze medal position after 6 disciplines and could have easily won a bronze medal had she competed in the last event (the Women's 800m Heptatahlon);

It also does not make any sense that T&T did not field any male 400m runners and a Men's 4x400m relay team especially knowing the high calibre of Male 400m runners that we have when compared with the best in the region. It is also at these regional games that we should be blooding our individual Women 400m and Women's 4x400m relay teams if the NAAA TT are serious about ever making sure that T&T fields competitive Women's 4x400m relay teams at future global championships.
Or maybe they are content to continue seeing our TTO Teams underachieving for the talent we have at our disposal as we currently have been doing for the last decade at various track & field games and championships.

We need to continue lashing the NAAA TT hard for their shortsightedness in selecting TTO teams for these various regional games which ultimately leads to our teams underachieving in the amount of medals they bring home. The NAAA TT still seems to be more concerned about taking the maximum number of officials on these trips than they are about giving the maximum number of TTO athletes the opportunity to compete against the best in the region for medals and to also gain vital experience that can serve them well for being competitive at the world class level at future global championships.

On a related side note, maybe the time has come for Jehue Gordon to also try his hand at some other track events and not to limit himself to just the 400m Hurdles as that strategy might benefit him in the long term in getting back to the top flight in his pet event. If I was Jehue I would try my hand at competing in more 400m flat events and more 110m Hurdles events to help work on my top end speed and speed endurance.

Did some of our athletes get food poisoning? I was watching a video of the 800 meters race. Saw Nicholas Landau starting the race, and by the last 400 meters he was nowhere to be seen.

Silver medal in the women 4x100 m. I think baton passing cost us a real shot at the gold. 10 guesses who won.
