FORT de FRANCE – Barbados won two more medals late in the final session of the 43rd CARIFTA Games here at the Stade Municipal Pierre Aliker.
Overall, Team Barbados captured five gold, five silver and six bronze medals to finish with 16, with a silver and a bronze to close.
Shamar Rock was visibly disappointed after slipping to second place in the Under-20 boys’ triple jump. He has been leading with 15.39 metres when Odaine Lewis of Jamaica produced a jump that was ten centimetres longer to take the gold. The bronze medal went to  Clayton Brown, also of Jamaica, with 15.30.
The Under-18 girls’ 4×400 metres relay team also won a bronze medal in a time of three minutes 41.90 seconds. Instead of finishing, Sada Williams was switched to the second leg with Tiana Bowen anchoring, while Shonita Brome and Jaria Hoyte took care of the other two legs.
Jamaica won in 3:37.65 sand The Bahamas were second in 3:39.65.
The Under-18 boys did not face the starter, while the Under-20 boys’ unit of Joshua Walcott, Levi Cadogan, Akeim David and Tre Hinds were also fourth in 3:18.33.  (SAT)
