Athletes debut in fine style
The numbers were much larger this week, and some athletes who were injured last year, made their season debut in fine style earlier today at the League 1 athletics meet at the National Stadium.
Blitz’s Shae Nurse won the Under-15 boys’ 800 metres in 2 minutes 20.61 seconds and his teammate Tamal Atwell was smooth as silk in winning the 400 metres in 53.63 seconds. Both boys had hamstring injuries last year and seem on course for a competitive division which will also include Mario Burke and Ramarco Thompson, who were watching from the stands.
Miguel Carrington and Richard Lynch will also be thrown into the mix, as well as NAPSAC champion Rivaldo Leacock who goes straight into the Under-15 division.
CARIFTA Games captain Tyrell Forde of Rising Stars shrugged off his knee injury from last season, opening with 14.18 seconds in the Under-20 boys’ 110m hurdles.
Next week’s League 2 meet will start at 2 p.m. (SAT)
