The 50th CARIFTA  Track & Field Championships opened this  evening  in  Nassau,  Bahamas  with  an impressive opening ceremony program depicting a sampling of the  cultural life   and music of the host nation along with the traditional march pass of the  competing teams including a  smart looking 21 strong Cayman Islands team lead  by  co-captains  Brianna Smith and  YaNelli Dawkins. 

Prior  to the  opening ceremony  the  athletes  had their first workout  at the  Stadium under  the watchful  eye of Coaches  Holness and  Williams and  were later  visited  at their base at the  Breezes Resorts  where they were  addressed  by  the  President,  First  Vice-President  and  General-Secretary of  Cayman Athletics.  All three   stressed the  importance of the  athletes striving  to improve  on their Personal Bests for the  events in which they are competing.

News from the  camp  was that last Year’s Under 17 Boys High Jump  Silver medalist, Andrew Stone, will forego competing in this  event due  to a strain  but will be present to challenge for another Gold medal in the Under 20 Boys Long Jump,  where he will  renew rivalry with the two athletes, he beat at last Year’s Championships for the Gold medal.

Competition will commence tomorrow morning at 9:00am local time with the following athletes slated to compete: Arion Wright in the Boys Octathlon, Aaliyannah Anderson in the Under  17 Girls  100m  and Jaden Reid and Devonte Howell in the Boys Under 20 100m.
