Cant believe the times this 15 yo kid running for 400M. All he needs now is a good coach and to remain focus and he will surely be a main contender in the seniors in a few years time.

Yeah. I say by next year he will be competing against the seniors. 46.96 at 15 years old...He is on pace to reach 45 by the age of 18. He will surely challenge KJ in the future.

Actually that 44 point only came this year at age 18/19
At 15 he had the identical PR as Machel - 46.96, and Machel eh done for de year yet
However 45.24 at 17 is beastly

Yeah but there is no harm in being overly supportive and optimistic when a burgeoning talent comes along - look how you and Bolt turned out.

As long as we manage expectations and where possible jump in when guidance is sought, chances are our love for track can actually end up making a positive difference in an athlete's development. After all we are Trinbagonians, we born optimistic.

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad - Double Carifta Champion Machel Cedenio will lead an eight member national contingent to the 7th IAAF World Youth (under 18) Track and Field Championships in Lille, France, from July 6 to 11.

Cedenio was selected for the boys 400m. The 15 year old Southern Academy student is one of two local athletes who are ranked in the top ten in the world in the team. Cedenio is at 10th in the one lap sprint after he clocked 46.96 seconds at the Quantum Classic on May 28 at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella.  At this year’s Carifta Games in Jamaica in April the Quantum athlete sped to victory in the boys under 17 200 (21.43) and 400m (47.38). In the one lap race he missed out Usain Bolt’s record by 0.05 seconds.

Great start for Machel - just won his heat in 47.32, a time that would have broken Bolt's Carifta U-17 400m record. He needs to improve his start response time though, walked out the blocks.

Looking at the IAAF WY 400m boy's standings, he is the only boy born in 1995 (currently still 15 years old) in the rankings. All others are born in 1994 and are months if not more than a year older, impressive!!

Congrats to Cedenio. He will certainly take gold next year in this event, as he will still eligible. If needs to improve the beginning of his race. His reaction to the gun also needs to improve.

Now on a very serious note...what about Brown Ato?  The man does have a silver at World's.....!  He was a Jr. record holder and if not for injuries and very BAD decisions by him and his management team, he might have been something special today....what yuh think?  And I am not asking this for the dummies who sing his praises as if he is some world beater today...cuz that he ain't.

Yes Gawd on Pitch he is a definite talent. I also would have expected a better start from a 200/400 runner but he is young and hopefully has an attentive coach.

Noo he wont!

There is No world Youth next year!

Next year is World Juniors and he will go up against older boys. He could still win that, but his shot at World YOUTH has passed.

Having looked at the race, MC first half was too slow. In fact he fact he was last with 100m to go. Now he is in the big league with athletes outside the caribbean, he will learn from this experience. Mind you, 46.89 as a 15yr is fantastic.

Machel Cedenio celebrating his 400m victory

Carifta champions Machel Cedenio and Andwuelle Wright are among seven T&T athletes who ranked in the top ten in the world in their events. Cedenio (Simplex) is at number four on the men’s junior (Under-20) 400-metres performance listing following his 45.93 personal best (pb) clocking in striking gold at the Carifta Games in the Bahamas on March 30. Cedenio also ran 45.99 to take the TnT Elite Twilight Games men’s one-lap title on May 3.

Triple Carifta medallist Jereem Richards (Abilene Wildcats) is eighth with a pb run of 46.20 seconds in finishing third behind Cedenio at the TnT Elite Games. Richards is also eighth in the 200m (20.95). John-Mark Constantine (Concorde) is seventh-quickest in the men’s 100m after he dashed to 10.38 (pb) to win at the Carifta trials on March 2. Constantine’s run was more impressive as he ran into a 3.4m/s headwind.

Double Carifta bronze medallist Reubin Walters (Memphis Pioneers) sits at ninth in the men’s 110m hurdles (99.0cm) with a pb time of 13.66 set at the Falcon Games on March 24. In the World Youth (U-18) standing, 2012/2013 Carifta gold medallist Andwuelle Wright (Signal Hill Secondary) is seventh in the boys long jump with his 7.29 distance which he set in retaining his boys U-17 Carifta title earlier this year. Last year’s Carifta boys U-17 200m champion Jonathan Farinha (Abilene Wildcats) is at fourth in the boys 200m with 21.10 pb dash at the first day of action at the Falcons Games on March 23.

Kayelle Clarke is the lone female on the global listings. The Petrotrin Palo Seco sprinter is at sixth in the world youth 200m after she returned a time of 23.76 in finishing sixth in the girls under-20 200m finals at the Carifta Games.

We carried him to the Olympics last year 2012 and benched him (I am willing to overlook last year because we medalled) and now we carry him to the World Champs this year 2013 and benched him yet again.  :-\

I am now wondering if Cedenio was ill or injured or something?
This World Champs would have been the perfect opportunity to allow the youth to prove that he is now a man and can handle the responsibility just like what the Jamaicans did with Javon Francis his big rival from his recent junior 400m days who Cedenio has beaten on a few occasions.

So the question now beckons, do we see Machel Cedenio as one of our future 400m stars or not?!

This is why the Jamaicans can excel so consistently because they are prepared to give their talented youths a chance to shine like how they threw Javon Francis in at the deep end and he floated beautifully to help deliver them a 4x400m silver medal.
We can learn so much from the Jamaicans where athletics is concerned.
Why bench one of your most talented youngsters especially when more that one of your senior runners are spent/burnt out and clearly not up to par?

Now here is a reminder of how a spent and out of form Lalonde Gordon was placed in a position to messed up our vital 2nd leg and lost us a possible medal while the talented youth Cedenio who could have done a much better job was forced to sit on the bench because as folks want to argue he don't have the senior experience.

Well how on earth is Cedenio meant to get his much needed senior experience then if he is regularly to be brought along for the ride because he qualified to be on the squad but is still left on the bench when some of the seniors are clearly not up to par for one reason or the other?

Here is Javon Francis and the Jamaicans celebrating after the 4x400m relay final.
 
Jamaica 4x4 team celebrates silver medal
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/7jU4xVjdBlI" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/7jU4xVjdBlI</a>
Jamaica 4x4 team celebrates silver medal. Calabar High schoolboy Javon Francis was Jamaica's star. The Jamaican team, which also included Rusheen McDonald, Edino Steele and Omar Johnson, stopped the clock in a season best 2:59.88 behind USA, anchored by LaShawn Merritt, 2:58.71, a world leading time.

>>>>>>

Now imagine if Cedenio was given his chance how our team could possibly have been celebrating alongside the Jamaicans too and could even have won a silver and not just a bronze medal in the 4x400m Relay.

This was a big opportunity wasted in my eyes to baptize Cedenio and to announce his arrival on the senior stage as a 400m runner as well as to bring home an extra medal.  :pissedoff:
I hope our team management learn from this. Give the youths a chance especially if the seniors are performing below par!

Been chiming on this since last year. It's time to let the stallion out of the stable.

Next year he has Penn Relays, CAC Seniors, World Relay Champs (Bahamas), Commonwealth Games to show his mettle.

Caution: He needs to improve his running posture by running taller to control how his leg rotates outward when he runs, striking with the ball of his feet instead of his heel when he strides, and experimenting by going out a little faster in the first 200m to better balance his race, instead of leaving it so late every time. While that strategy works against juniors that will no longer work when he moves up and mixes it up with the big boys.

His competition from Carifta, World Youth and World Juniors have moved on and are benefitting from increased strength and "big boy" experience - Javon Francis (45.19/44.0 split), Arman Hall (44.8x) and Stephen Newbold (44.2 split at Penn Relays).

A dose of private sector sponsorship FROM NOW (not later) would be nice if someone can get it into their heads to help athletes on their way UP.
