Silver for T&T in Men 4x100 relay
Women claim bronze medal

Published: Monday, May 26, 2014 (T&T Guardian)


T&T’s national women’s 4x100m celebrated this country’s first ever medal at the IAAF World Relay Championship, when the foursome, anchored by Kai Selvon clocked 42.66 seconds to claim bronze, in Nassau, Bahamas, on Saturday.
 
The bronze medal-winning women, which also included Kamaria Durant, Michelle-Lee Ahye and Reyare Thomas, finished behind the United States (41.88) and Jamaica (42.28). T&T moved into the final after finishing second in the opening heat, and third overall with a season-best 42.59, behind the US (42.29).
 
T&T bowed out of both the women’s 4x200 and 4x800m final after failing to complete either.
 
T&T claimed bronze in the Men 4x400m in a time of 2:58.34, a new national record. First was the USA with 2:57.25. Second was Bahamas with a time of 2:57.59.
 
T&T claimed silver in the men’s 4x100m relay edging Great Britain into third place in a time of 38.04, a season best. Jamaica won the event with a time of 37.77.
 
The T&T Men 4x100 team included Keston Bledman, Marc Burns, Rondel Sorillo and Richard Thompson.
 
Speaking after the final, both Ahye and Durant said they were pleased at the result. “(It) Felt really good for the whole team. (I’m) really happy that we were able to get a medal, especially since it was the first for Trinidad and Tobago. Also, I thought the competition was tough and we had to run our hearts out,” said Ahye.
 
Durant said it was important for T&T to get a medal since it was the first ever World Relay Championship.
 
“First time medalling for Trinidad and Tobago, so really excited about that,” she said, adding, “(I) thought the track was really fast and the competition on the whole was very exciting.”
 
Unfortunately, T&T’s 4x400m women: Shawna Fermin, Domonique Williams, Romona Modeste and Alena Brooks, failed to make it past the heats. T&T (3:30.91) finished fourth behind Nigeria (3:27.07), Brazil (3:30.37) and Italy (3:30.67) in Heat One, and ninth overall.
 
T&T’s men’s 4x400m team, comprising Lalonde Gordon, Jarrin Solomon (two of four runners in T&T’s bronze medal team at the 2012 Olympics), Renny Quow and Machel Cedenio eased into last night’s final after placing second (3:01.06) in the heat, behind a star-studded Olympic champion team, the Bahamas, which set the Championship record in 3:00.30.
 
Bahamas ran with all four runners, Chris Brown, Michael Mathieu, Demetrius Pinder and Ramon Miller, who led the country to glory in 2012. Overall, T&T finished third in the heats, behind Great Britain (3:00.74). T&T lined up in lane five in the final.
 
The highlight of the inaugural World Relays on Saturday, was Jamaica’s 4x200m which smashed the world record with a gold medal run in 1:18.63. Anchored by multiple Olympic medialist Yohan Blake, the Jamaicans led a Caribbean-strong final, which saw St Kitts finish runner-up in 1:20.51, and Barbados fourth in 1:21.88. France took third in 1:20.66.

TT capture two bronze at World Relays
Monday, May 26 2014 (T&T Newsday)

TRINIDAD AND Tobago captured a pair of bronze medals at the inaugural two-day IAAF World Relays, at the T Robinson Stadium, Nassau, Bahamas, up to press time yesterday.


On Saturday night, Trinidad and Tobago placed third in the women’s 4x100-metre race while, last evening, there was another bronze for the twin-island republic, in the men’s 4x400m.

Starting the Women’s 4x100m race in lane three, Trinidad and Tobago crossed the finish line in a time of 42.66 seconds, trailing the United States, who ran 41.88, and Jamaica who clocked 42.28.

Nigeria were fourth in 42.67, followed by Great Britain (42.75), Germany (43.38), Brazil (43.67) and France (43.76).

The highlight of yesterday’s performances for Trinidad and Tobago was the men’s 4x400m team, which completed the four-lap race in a national record time of two minutes 58.34 seconds.

The fancied Jamaica did not finish due to a botched baton exchange, but the United States captured gold in 2:57.25, while hosts Bahamas took silver in 2:57.59.

Fourth place went to Great Britain in 3:00.02, with Cuba (3:00.61), Venezuela (3:01.44) and Brazil (3:03.87) trailing.

In the 4x100m men, Trinidad and Tobago advanced to last night’s final, after placing second in heat one of the preliminary round. The TT team clocked 38.09, behind Great Britain who ran 37.93 while Japan, who were third in 38.34, advanced as one of the two “fastest losers”.

Also progressing to the 8.37 pm final were Jamaica, Brazil, France (heat two), Germany and Canada (heat three).

The TT team were drawn in lane four of the final, with France in lane one, Japan in lane two, Germany in lane three and, from lanes five to eight — Great Britain, Jamaica, Canada and Brazil.

The women were due to participate in the 4x200m final last evening, as they will face the starter’s gun in lane one, alongside Nigeria (lane two), United States (lane three), France (lane four), Jamaica (lane five), Great Britain (lane six), Switzerland (lane seven) and Bahamas (lane eight).

The national women’s 4x800m relay team failed to finish in the final, with the United States triumphant in eight minutes 1.58 seconds, ahead of Kenya (8:04.28) and Russia (8:08.19).

There were no joy for the TT women 4x400m foursome, as they placed fourth and last in the ‘B’ final. Trinidad and Tobago completed the event in three minutes 33.21 seconds, behind Australia (3:31.01), Bahamas (3:31.71) and Canada (3:32.58). The World Relays concluded last night.

T&T men bag 4x4 bronze in record time
By Kwame Laurence in Nassau
Story Created: May 25, 2014 at 9:34 PM ECT (T&T Express)


Trinidad and Tobago produced a sizzling run in the men’s 4x400 metres final, at the IAAF World Relays, here in Nassau, Bahamas, late yesterday.

Lalonde Gordon, Renny Quow, Machel Cedenio and Jarrin Solomon captured bronze at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium, establishing a new national record in the process--two minutes, 58.34 seconds.

Gordon put T&T in pole position with a strong leadoff leg. Quow was impressive too, and when Cedenio got the baton he was second, marginally behind Bahamas’ Chris Brown.

Solomon also received the baton second, but LaShawn Merritt was right on his shoulder. The American moved past the T&T anchor with about 150 metres to go.

The urgings of a 15,000-strong crowd were not enough to propel Bahamian Michael Mathieu over the line ahead of Merritt, the world champion overhauling his fellow-anchor to hand United States gold in 2:57.25. Bahamas clocked 2:57.59 to take silver.

After press time, last night, T&T hunted precious metal in the men’s 4x100m event.

Running in heat one in the qualifying round, Keston Bledman, Marc Burns, Rondel Sorrillo and Richard "Torpedo" Thompson combined for a 38.09 seconds clocking—good enough for second spot and an automatic berth in last night’s championship race.

Great Britain finished first in heat one in 37.93.

Jamaica went into the final as the fastest qualifiers, the northern Caribbean team clocking 37.71 seconds. Great Britain and T&T were second and third fastest, respectively.

In the women’s 4x400m “B” final, Shawna Fermin, Alena Brooks, Magnolia Howell and Romona Modeste produced a 3:33.21 effort to finish fourth.

Australia emerged victorious in 3:31.01, forcing Bahamas (3:31.71) to settle for the runner-up spot. Canada (3:32.58) finished third.

In the “A” final, the Americans grabbed gold in 3:21.73, while silver went to Jamaica (3:23.26) and bronze to Nigeria (3:23.41).

T&T were non-finishers in the women’s 4x200m and 4x800m events.

In the 4x2, the first exchange, between Michelle-Lee Ahye and Reyare Thomas, was never completed, and Kai Selvon and Kamaria Durant were left stranded.

United States (1:29.45), Great Britain (1:29.61) and Jamaica (1:30.04) earned gold, silver and bronze, respectively.

Jessica James ran the opening leg for T&T in the 4x800m, and at the end of her two laps she trailed the field.

Fermin was charged with second leg duties, but was unable to complete her assignment. Her injury did not seem serious, but the discomfort was sufficient for Fermin to abort her run.

Neither Brooks nor Modeste got the opportunity to break a sweat.

United States were golden in the event in 8:01.58. Kenya clocked 8:04.28 to secure silver, while bronze was bagged by the Russians in 8:08.19.

RELAY HISTORY
4x1 women strike bronze!

By Kwame Laurence in Nassau
Story Created: May 25, 2014 at 9:37 PM ECT (T&T Express)


Kamaria Durant, Michelle-Lee Ahye, Reyare Thomas and Kai Selvon re-wrote the history books at the Thomas Robinson National Stadium here in Nassau, Bahamas, on Saturday night. They teamed up for the first-ever global medal from a Trinidad and Tobago women’s relay team, and also became the country’s first podium finishers at the inaugural IAAF World Relays.

The T&T quartet completed their lap of the track in 42.66 seconds, edging Nigeria (42.67) into fourth spot. The Americans, anchored by Lekeisha Lawson, claimed gold in 41.88, while silver went to Jamaica in 42.28.

Durant, the newest member of the team, ran the leadoff leg for T&T. “It was exciting being in a final,” Durant told the Express, “and being with these girls. I don’t even know what to say because I know these girls have been in it longer than me and I know they’ve been longing for it. Just to be with them is an achievement. I’m very happy.”

Ahye was superb on the back straight, the in-form sprinter setting up T&T’s push for precious metal. “Yes, the door has officially opened,” Ahye declared after the race. “Look out for us more in finals and on the podium.”

The experienced Thomas ran the third leg for T&T, handing the baton to Selvon. Thomas was a relieved woman on Saturday night. “It has been years the women tried to mount the podium, so this was a great opportunity.”

Selvon, who outduelled Nigeria anchor Francesca Okwara in a keen battle for bronze, was also thrilled to be part of a victory ceremony at a global championship. “We’ve been working at it for a long time. We’re just happy to see we pulled through this time and we executed. We’re proud of one another.”

USA WINS FIRST GOLDEN BATON – NASSAU 2014

26 MAY 2014 GENERAL NEWS NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS
USA WINS FIRST GOLDEN BATON – NASSAU 2014

The IAAF World Relays have excelled beyond our expectations


“The IAAF’s faith in the innovative IAAF World Relays, a new event with a new presentation concept, and The Bahamas’ ability to deliver a top global sports entertainment product have been richly rewarded this weekend,” said IAAF President Lamine Diack.

"In the 'sun, sea and sand paradise' that The Bahamas markets itself, we have experienced a true sporting paradise which has excelled beyond our expectations. The people have embraced the IAAF World Relays and the noise of their support will be left ringing in our memories for many years to come.”

President Diack awarded The Golden Baton to captains Will Leer and Chanelle Price of the USA. The Golden Baton is awarded to the best overall team across all ten finals, with eight points scored for first, seven for second, and so on down to one point for eighth.

The USA's total of 60 points included five victories, in the men's 4x400m and the women's 4x100m, 4x200m, 4x400m and 4x800m, the last of which included Price. They picked up additional points in the men's 4x800m and 4x1500m (the team including Leer) and the women's 4x1500m. Both 4x1500m finishes were second places and national records.

At the end of the first day, the USA led Kenya by only one point, 21 to 20, with Jamaica standing third with 15. Jamaica came through on the second day to finish second with 41 points, powered by first-place finishes in the men's 4x100m and 4x200m relays. Their women's 4x100m and 4x400m relays provided second-place finishes as well.

Kenya picked up an additional 15 points in the second day to finish third with 35. Their major point-winners came from world record performances in both men's and women's 4x1500m races, but an unexpected four points came from their men's 4x200m relay, which finished fifth.

In total, 29 teams scored points across the ten events.

REPORT: WOMEN'S 4X100M – NASSAU 2014

2014 IAAF World Relays Women 4x100m Final, T&T 3rd in
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/WfRTp8ybSUc" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/WfRTp8ybSUc</a>

It was a blazing second bend by Jeneba Tarmoh which set up victory for the USA in the women's 4x100m final, and sharp baton work on all three exchanges didn't hurt, with the US team clocking 41.88.

The victory put the US women, who set the world record of 40.82 in the 2012 Olympic final, back on top of the global rankings for the sprint relay after taking silver behind rivals Jamaica at last year's IAAF World Championships.

Tianna Bartoletta and Alexandria Anderson set the race up, staying even with the Jamaican lead-off pair of Carrie Russell and Kerron Stewart.

Bartoletta even had the slowest reaction time of the eight finalists but, in the end, it didn't matter as Tarmoh scorched past Schillonie Calvert on the turn before passing the baton to LaKeisha Lawson and the US anchor had a free flight down the homestretch, even as Jamaica's Samantha Henry-Robinson tried in vain to close the gap.

Neither USA nor Jamaica had their top talent available, as Jamaica's winning anchor runner from Moscow 2013 and last year’s IAAF World Athlete of The Year, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, though entered, did not run, and many of the top US women stayed home.

Jamaica held on to second in 42.28; third place went to Trinidad and Tobago, with Kamaria Durant, Michelle-Lee Ahye, Reyare Thomas and Kai Selvon bringing the baton around in 42.66, the latter overtaking Nigeria just a few metres from the line to grab third place by 0.01.

Most of the top quartets ran the same line-ups from the heats to the final, a fact which may have contributed to all 24 exchanges in the final coming off successfully.

Earlier, the USA won the first of three heats with 42.29, using Bartoletta, Anderson, Tarmoh and Lawson – the same line up they would run in the final – with Trinidad and Tobago taking the second automatic qualification spot.

Jamaica held off a strong challenge from Nigeria to take second heat, also in 42.29.

The third heat went to Great Britain – fielding Asha Philip, Anyika Onuora, Jodie Williams and Desiree Henry – in 43.20, with France taking the second spot.

Hosts The Bahamas finished third in 43.54 but just missed out on a place in the main final with the two fastest non-automatic qualifier spots going to Germany and Brazil, the third-placed teams in the first two heats.

26 MAY 2014 REPORT NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS
REPORT: MEN’S 4X400M – NASSAU 2014

USA wins Men's 4x400m 2:57.25 WL BAH 2nd TRI 3rd IAAF World Relays 2014
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/SCMrtI5nW58" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/SCMrtI5nW58</a>

LaShawn Merritt may have won the 4x400m relay for the USA, but he had to beat 17,004 Bahamians to do it. The USA barely led through the entire race, and Merritt had to come from third place to deliver the 2:57.25 victory.

LaToy Williams started The Bahamas this time, but was deep in fifth at the handoff. Trinidad and Tobago took the lead, with David Verburg getting the stick to Tony McQuay for the USA, and McQuay was able to win the break on the backstretch.

Meanwhile, Demetrius Pinder moved the Bahamas up to third, and fought past Trinidad and Tobago on the second turn to move into second. Both islands got in front on the homestretch, which meant Bahamas' Olympic hero Chris Brown got the baton in the lead for the third leg.

Brown would not be headed and the USA's Christian Taylor couldn't get around Trinidad and Tobago; Brown's split was a scorching 44.20.

Taylor then got to hand off to LaShawn Merritt, however, and Brown had Michael Mathieu and 17,000 screaming countrymen. Merritt moved into second on the backstretch, waited around the second bend, and moved out to take on Mathieu on the homestretch. It wasn't until the final 10 meters that the hopes of the capacity crowd were dashed and Merritt moved into the lead for good.

Trinidad and Tobago earned a national record in third, with 2:58.34. Jamaica suffered a dropped baton at the first exchange but battled back to finish eighth in 3:10.23.

It was a duel to the last lap for Belgium and Japan in the B final, with Kevin Borlee finally putting Belgium in front for a 3:02.97 victory; his brother Dylan and twin Jonathan had the first two legs. Japan's mark was 3:03.24.

26 MAY 2014 REPORT NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS
REPORT: MEN’S 4X100M – NASSAU 2014

Jamaica wins men's 4x100m 37.77 TRI 2nd GBR 3rd IAAF World Relays 2014
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/LI2L7kbqXZ4" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/LI2L7kbqXZ4</a>

The men’s 4x100m final was Jamaica's to lose, and they managed to avoid that fate with a 37.77 clocking and an authoritative anchor leg from Yohan "The Beast" Blake. Blake's closing 100m was clocked in 9.07 with a running start.

The start of the race was delayed when France’s first-leg runner withdrew with an injury, but once underway it was all Jamaica. Nesta Carter led off and passed to Nickel Ashmeade, who had a visible lead when he exchanged with Julian Forte.

Blake had a clear lead of several meters when he broke out into the homestretch with the baton. Jamaica's handoffs, while often messy, were secure and covered by the raw speed of their athletes.

The many Jamaican fans who turned out for the IAAF World Relays congregated near the top of the second curve, singing and dancing, through the awards ceremony.

Trinidad and Tobago came in second with a 38.04 clocking, powered largely by Richard Thompson's last-leg heroics; Thompson pulled the men in red past Dwain Chambers of Great Britain. Brazil (fourth) and Japan (fifth) were credited with identical 38.40 clockings.

Ukraine got a ray of light in the B final, running a 38.53 national record to hold off a strong challenge from Cuba (38.60). Australia failed to complete the second exchange and Netherlands the third; with Barbados not starting, the eight-lane race had five teams finish.

Earlier in the evening, Great Britain won the first heat in 37.93, with Trinidad and Tobago second in 38.09, gaining ground but not quite closing the gap. Japan, third in 38.34, qualified by time.

Jamaica won the second heat handily with a 9.01 closing 100m from Andrew Fisher, running 37.71; Brazil took second in 38.10. France was a non-automatic qualifier with their 38.33. Germany took the third heat in 38.62 with Canada the second in 38.70. The Bahamas and the USA were both disqualified for passing out of the zone.

Relay splits Gordon 44.3 , Quow 44.6 , Cedenio 44.5 Solomon 44.94

like our relay team in reverse? our fastest split first and our slowest last?
I think this line-up order was best to keep us in contention for a gold medal until the last leg. Our only problem was that Solomon is not yet a regular sub-45 quarter miler but he does has the fighting mentality that is required in a world class relay competition.

If we replace Solomon with a fresh Lendore on the last leg then its worries and problems for both USA and Bahamas especially if our other guys can ensure that he gets the baton ahead of our rivals on the final leg.

I am predicting from now that our relay team in this order (L.Gordon, R.Quow, M.Cedenio, D.Lendore) can take our national record down to 2:56.xx and can win gold in any major championships once all our quarter-milers are kicking on all cylinders.

Solomon can also run in the Heats to help us qualify for the Final while we keep Lendore fresh for the Finals and some of the other guys like Jereem Richards, Zwede Hewitt & Carlyle Roudette, Jereem Richards,  Jehue Gordon & Ade Alleyne-Forte.

Indeed. Solomon gave 110%. Remember he was running against the 5th fastest man in history in the 400m. With Cedenio improving rapidly, I think Solomon realizes that a sub 45 is necessary for him to keep his spot.

Lalonde looks like he is ready to step up to James, Santos and Merrit.. Quow is not that far behind them.

One last thing.. Cedenio will be the next sub 45 runner. I expect him to do it before the end of the season. If not, he will certainly run low 45.

Well Cedenio has already done a 45-low this season when he ran 45.23 in the Cayman Islands earlier this month and based on his relay split of 44.5 in Worlds Relay 4x4 Final he is definitely looking like he is capable of a sub-45 in the flat quarter-mile race this season.
Hopefully his sub-45 from the blocks will come at the World Junior Champs in July if all goes well but I won't be surprised if it comes before that which will also serve to seriously intimidate his opponents.

I was just thinking that it might now be a good time for us to officially create T&T 4x400m Relay A and B Teams to regularly compete against each other at our national and international meets at home.

This will serve to prove which members of the B team can be considered for selection to the 6 member 4x400m Relay A Team to represent us at major champions by us monitoring which of them can regularly put down sub-45 relay splits which is expected of all A-Team members.
It will also help to give our A team some serious competition when running at home especially when they don't have other top quality 4x4 relay teams like Bahamas, USA and Jamaica to compete against at home meets.

So with that in mind here are my T&T 4x400m Relay A & B Teams for now.

T&T 4x400m Relay A Team 2014:-
Lalonde Gordon - 44.91 SB & 44.52 PB,
Renny Quow - 45.36 SB & 44.53 PB,
Machel Cedenio - 45.23 SB & PB,
Deon Lendore - 44.36 SB & PB;

Extra A Team Squad members (who can run in Heats to keep one or two of above members fresh for the final like the USA does with Merritt):-
Jarrin Solomon - 45.19 PB & 46.24 SB, Zwede Hewitt - 45.51 PB;

T&T 4x400m Relay B Team 2014 (with members who should be pressing for places on the A Team):-
Jereem Richards - 46.15 SB & PB,
Ade Alleyne-Forte - 46.13 PB,
Jehue Gordon - 46.43 PB,
Carlyle Roudette - 45.77 SB & PB;

Extra B Team Squad members (pressing for inclusion in the B team and who can also be used to form a potential 4x400m Relay C Team to show their pedigree) are:-
Asa Guevara - 47.12 SB & PB, Brandon Parris - 47.27 SB & PB, Theon Lewis - 47.66 SB & PB, Brandon Benjamin 47.31 PB;

Carlyle Roudette should be on the A team . I dont know if he does not know how to time his race properly in the flat 400m .But he usually runs a below 44.6 relay split. Look at his relay legs and splits for texas a&m

If Carlyle Roudette can reliably run low 44 splits on his relay legs for us and can do so more reliably than Hewitt or Solomon then he definitely deserves to be included on the A team.
Maybe we can swoop him into the A Team for Hewitt?
Would you put your head on a block that Roudette can reliably run a quicker relay spit than Hewitt considering Hewitt's 45.51 flat PB?

yes hewitt has a faster pr but when last he came close to breaking 46 seconds. Roudette broke 46seconds  repeatedly for the season. Since the 8th June 2011 hewitt has not broken 46

Solomon should be on the A team. He runs the split like a beast.

And if you check the Olympic semis and finals. His split may be around 44.5 or less.

I agree which is why I have him on the A Team.
However in the Final a fresh Lendore replaces Solomon on the final leg as we need someone who can equal Merritt's ground speed and keep the lead if they get the baton ahead of Merritt on the last leg. :beermug:

What about them?
I don't think we currently have enough world class female quarter milers to form an A Team and B Team.
However if you think we do then I invite you to produce a similar A and B Team list for our women.
And please ensure that the A team can compete with the Jamaicans and USA and can reliably make a World Class 4x400m Relay Final.

I look forward to your list.  :beermug:

These girls are all decent 400mh runners. I think all three can run better than sub 54 in the 400 flat. I dont think any of the current 400m women can break 54. The Americans and Jamaicans tap into their 400mh talent pool most of the time. I think we will be doing the same soon.

I knew the 4x400 women were trying to pull something together. But I never knew they were that bad :(.

T&T relay runners grab two more medals

T&T relay runners grab two more medals
Published: Tuesday, May 27, 2014 (T&T Guardian)


T&T bagged a further two medals, one which included a national record-breaking performance, to close its account at the inaugural IAAF World Relays, at the Thomas Robinson Stadium, Nassau, Bahamas, on Sunday, with a sixth-spot finish in the standings amongst all participating nations.
 
As a result, all three teams (women’s 4x100m, men’s 4x100m and men’s 4x400m) secured spots at next year’s IAAF World Championships in Athletics, which will take place in Beijing, China.
 
The men’s 4x100m relay team, anchored by Richard Thompson, captured a silver medal after clocking 38.04, behind Jamaica (37.77). Keston Bledman opened the race, before passing the baton to Marc Burns, who in turn handed it to Rondel Sorrillo.
 
Jamaica, which finished second in the overall tally, led the 4x100 race with Yohan Blake, both of whom were part of Jamaica’s world record-breaking team at the London Olympics, included. Nickel Ashmeade and Julian Forte, also contributed to the team’s gold. Great Britain (38.19) finished third.
 
Later in the evening, T&T again came up massive in the 4x400m relay, smashing the national record by nearly a second, to claim bronze.
 
Jarrin Solomon, anchored the team in a 2:58.43 finish, behind the USA (2:57.25) and a full-strength Bahamas (2:57.59). T&T’s previous record, captured at the London Olympics, was 2:59.40.
 
Solomon and Lalonde Gordon were part of both record breaking teams. The other runners helping T&T claim bronze on Sunday were Renny Quow and Machel Cedenio.
 
A day prior, T&T opened the medal haul with a third-placed finish in the women’s 4x100m relay. Kai Selvon anchored with Kamaria Durant, Michelle-Lee Ahye and Reyare Thomas completing the team. T&T clocked 42.66, behind the USA (41.88) and Jamaica (42.28).
 
Unfortunately, the entire trip was not as successful for some T&T athletes as it was for others. Due to an injury to Shawna Fermin during the 4x800m relay, T&T failed to finish. Jessica James led the race, and handed the baton to Fermin. Alena Brooks and anchor Romona Modeste did not run.
 
Fermin, however, was a part of the 4x400m relay team, which finished fourth in the ‘B’ final. Fermin, Brooks, Modeste and Magnolia Howell clocked 3:33.21.
 
The United States topped the overall standings with 60 points, while Jamaica and Kenya finished second and third, with 41 and 35 points, respectively. Great Britain (24 points) took fourth; Australia (21) fifth; T&T (19) sixth; France (18) seventh; Bahamas (15) eighth; Poland (14) ninth and Nigeria (13) tenth.
 
The event served as qualifiers for the 2015 World Championship in Athletics. Only Jamaica and Great Britain qualified for all four relays (men’s 4x100m, 4x400m, women’s 4x100m, 4x400m).
 
Roughly 575 athletes from 43 nations ran. T&T travelled with the ninth highest contingent of athletes- 23. Bahamas will host the second edition of the annual competition once again, next year.
 
Select results
 
Men’s 4x100m
1 Jamaica (Nesta Carter, Nickel Ashmeade, Julian Forte, Yohan Blake), 37.77
2 T&T (Keston Bledman, Marc Burns, Rondel Sorrillo, Richard Thompson), 38.04
