Cleopatra Borel and Ayanna Alexander, the only T&T female athletics representatives who won silverware four years ago, will lead a strong national line-up at to the 2014 Commonwealth Games, which takes place in Glasgow, Scotland, from July 23-August 3. Borel and Alexander both finished with silver in the women’s shout put and triple jump events, respectively, at the 2010 event held in India. Borel also won a medal, bronze, at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Australia.
Along with Borel in the women’s shot put line-up is Annie Alexander, who will also feature in her favoured discus event. The full team was announced yesterday by the T&T Commonwealth Games Association and the T&T Olympic Committee.Meanwhile, T&T fields a men’s line-up which features no returning medalists in athletics from the last Commonwealth Games. Olympic bronze medalist George Bovell will feature. Top local shooter Roger Daniel, who won bronze at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and cycling sensation Njisane Phillip are also in the group.
