CAC Games tough for Bajans
THE GOING continues to get tough for Barbados.
Three days in and the ultramarine and gold are still without a medal despite some credible finals showings at the Central American And Caribbean Games (CAC) in Mexico.
Chester Foster, Ronald Sargeant and Bernard Chase all failed to advance in the men’s individual 10-metre air pistol after finishing 24th, 27th and 28th out of a total 32 competitors.
The trio then placed tenth with a score of 1 615 in a team competition won by Cuba, who ended with 1 699.
In women’s table tennis singles action, both Sherice Felix and Angela Reid suffered tough losses when they failed to win a game in their opening-round matches.
The news wasn’t good in canoeing either as Stanley Brooker placed ninth in the men’s KI 200-metre final and then paired with Simon Goodridge to finish eighth in the team final.
Christian Selby is slated to take the pool today to contest the opening heat of the men’s 400 free before the men’s hockey team face Mexico in a preliminary group match. (JM)
