No T&T 400m relay team for World Indoors

Published: 
Saturday, March 1, 2014

National runner Jereem Richards has opted out of his place on the 4x400 metres relay team for the upcoming International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Indoor Championships, leaving management with little choice but to deduce the national contingent to four athletes. Due to Richards’ withdrawal, Lalonde Gordon, who will compete in the 400m event, has asked to be excused from the 4x400 relay because of groin muscle problems. 

“Running three rounds of the individual event then two rounds of the relay may be too much for the athlete,” said the National Association of Athletics Administrations (NAAA) in a press release.
Along with Gordon, Jarrin Solomon will also challenge the 400m event.  Michelle-Lee Ahye and Geronne Black will both feature in the 60m event. The last member of the entourage is coach and manager Paul Voisin. 
The IAAF World Indoor Championship will take place in Soport, Poland, from March 7-9.
