SOME?ATHLETES SHOWCASED speed and others their strength and stamina during yesterday’s PowerAde Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships (BSSAC) at the National Stadium.
Sprinter Mario Burke, a CARIFTA?Games gold medallist in the 100 metres for Under-17 boys last year, stepped up to the 400 metres during the morning session, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the powerfully built Harrison College runner.
He had to pull out all the stops to clock the fastest qualifying time of 48.33 seconds in the Under-20 boys’ 400-metre semi-final heat, but fell just after crossing the finish line.
