I don't believe MLA is on the decline I just think that she has had a lot going on behind the scenes this year. If KAB can get into sub 11 form before October she too stands a chance at making the final.

Please note that KAB's 100m PB of 11.14 so far this season is quicker than MLA's SB of 11.18.

The fact that MLA has been running much more often on the circuit than KAB this season and yet KAB still has a faster 100m SB than MLA this season should be worrying for those who are expecting MLA to make the World Champs 100m Final and to place anywhere inside the top 6 in the final.
I doubt that anyone who wants to place in the top 6 come the Women's 100m Final at World Champs in Doha will be able to do so without going sub-11 and MLA is yet to go sub-11 this season.   

Lets hope both MLA and KAB can go sub-11 and be in sub-11 form by Doha.

On the bright side Kamaria Durant is looking in the best shape I've seen her in for a while and ran a new 100m PB of 11.17 in the 100m Semis at Senior Open Champs and placed 3rd in the 100m Final. In addition KD also won the 200m Final in a respectable time of 22.96 so a TTO Women's 4x100m relay team of Durant to MLA to (Semoy or Prieto) to KAB can make the World Champs Final and could even place in the top 5 with enough baton practice but they will have to be prepared and able to lower our 4x100m relay NR of 42.03 if they plan to be anything other than lane-fillers in the Final.

these are the senior level results you get when you don't develop talent on a consistent basis at the youth level. now you end up having to depend on the same senior athletes for five, six years and hope they can bring home medals at world champs and olympics

Yes that's the problem, not much in the way of new talent. I don't see much on the development of the sport either.

On a side note we have been winning medals in other sports in the ongoing Pan American games. I created a thread here https://www.socawarriors.net/forum/index.php?topic=66445.msg987233#new

Don't think the track and field portion of the games have started.

Congrats. Well done.Continued success at the games. She and Tenil Campbell are the most consistent TT female athletes at the moment. I don't think Cedenio made it to the final. Hope Portius Warren makes it to the final.  Teneil Campbell copped silver in cycling. Not bad. Go Ladies! Tyra Gittens is looking pretty good to medal. Good Luck.

That would be nice. But it cold up in Lima. It is their winter at the moment. She probably don't want to pull a muscle to jeopardize her chances in Doha.

Keston Bledman performance in the men 100m final was terrible and Kelly Ann Baptiste in the women final was just as terrible. Now you see the state of our track and field (especially in the sprints) when we are still depending on these athletes who are clearly past their prime to win us medals. The younger athletes should be running faster than these two so they can compete at these games

 man this is disappointing. It appears that Richards did not make the 200 finals. I hope I am wrong when I checked the schedule.

Actually, I was wrong. I checked another site which said he qualified. Am I glad on that error.

Not really anything great from our Track and Field athletes. Good to see us collecting medals but based on the times they are running cannot say they are now more ready to medal at Doha than before the Games. Look at our men 100m sprinters, surely easy to say we will be lucky to even have finalist in Doha. Looking back at the world relays from earlier this year I was expecting better from our men 4x400 relay team and now I am skeptical about their chances of winning Gold in Doha, but they still remain our best hope for Gold at the Worlds. Also wanted Keshorn to win gold and improved on his season PB, and Ahye to improve on her times, as she is still running too slow to challenge for a medal. NO Gold medals from any of our Track and Field athletes at the Pan Am. But I am willing to be patient with our top T&F athletes and see what happens as the season continue to progress.

In other sports especially cycling we have done really well. So from a T&T team perspective we have done good, we even improved on our medal count from last Pan American Games but in Track and Field in particular I don't see any major improvements.

In the relay, he did not have the typical last 200 burst. And he did not make the 400 final. So something is wrong. Better now than Tokyo time. He has time to recover from what ever ailments that is bothering him.

Cedenio, Lendore and St Hillaire are sub 45 runners. And all of them are struggling.. Yes. Better now than Qatar or Tokyo.

What's the deal with Lalonde? He didn't run at the National Championships. Maybe he is resting for Tokyo. .

Men's 100m finalist???

Right now we don't have a single M100m dash worlds qualifier!

I think the last time that's been the case was like 1991.

I love the optimism in here, but trust and believe...

WINTER IS COMING....

With very few exceptions, all there is is a decline in our established stars, and NOTHING coming through the youth ranks makes me think "future prospect".

It's the usual, where one year some very young upstart runs well and is hailed as one to watch, only to disappear soon after.

I tried for a decade to avoid this by calling out the flaws in our system and the removal of the jokers running it, as well as changes in how we prepare our teams, but here we are.

Yeap is dry season for our sprints. It reminded me the gap after Crawfie time went. It took a long time before we get Ato. And Ato was pure luck for us. Out of the blue Ato just appeared. At least for me. I had never heard of him before the World Junior Championship. We would not be that lucky again.

Well if the ones in charge don't listen to your advice then we real backward. With your experience and connections with the advancements in T&F, when someone like you offer advice everybody should at least be listening.

If this happens (only one medal at Worlds) and the NAAA TT with its current leadership don't wake up and start listening to the advice of people like Ato then they never will.

Lets' see what transpires.

T&T squad for World Champs...and its a small team simply because enough our athletes did not meet the qualifying standards to compete

Kyle Greaux, Jereem Richards (200m), Machel Cedenio (400m), Andwuelle Wright (long jump), Keshorn Walcott (javelin), mile relay squad
