CAC gold medallists for World Games
T&T’s gold medallists at the CAC Championships, which ended on Sunday, have automatically qualified for the World Athletic Championships in Daegu, South Korea, from August 27 to September 4. Cleopatra Borel Brown (shot put), Renny Quow (400m), Semoy Hackett (100m) and Ayanna Alexander (triple jump) all confirmed their spots at the 23rd edition of the meet at the Jose A Figueroa Freire Central American Stadium in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, as well as Keston Bledman who won the 100 metres and the women’s 4x 100m relay team of Magnolia Howell, Michelle Lee Ahye, Ayanna Hutchinson and Hackett.
Borel-Brown attained the qualifying mark previously and did so again on Sunday.
Hackett dipped under the required 11.29 barrier in the women’s 100m twice with her best mark of 11.17, set on May 14. The 22-year-old was again within the standard when she raced to the CAC gold in 11.27 seconds on Friday. Quow won in Puerto Rico in 45.44 with the standard required being 45.25 while Alexander is the biggest benefactor of the new qualifying procedure. The B standard for the women’s triple jump is 14.10m, which is beyond the national record of 13.96 set by Alexander in 2009. The A mark is 14.30m and Alexander’s 2011 best is 13.60m. This country’s men’s 4x 400m team also ensured selection for the World Championships. The squad of Lalonde Gordon, Jarrin Solomon, Deon Lendore and Renny Quow teamed up to clock 3:01.65 seconds in taking silver and was under the 3:04.00 standard.
The victorious women’s 4x100m team was again under the 44:00 required in winning in 43.47.
The Men’s sprint relay squad, which clocked 38.89 to finish second, was also inside the World Champs standard. Keston Bledman, timing 10.05 in capturing the men’s 100m dash, was well under the 10.28 barrier.
