Tramaine Smith of Lodge and Josiah Atkins of Christ Church Foundation are on the Barbados CARIFTA track and field team for St Kitts-Nevis this weekend.

The pair were not in the original squad announced last week but nudged the selectors with outstanding performances at the PowerAde Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships.

Smith made the qualifying mark for the 200 metres, clocking 21.57 seconds as he beat the Under-17s in an impressive run.

“I was amazed and surprised because at CARIFTA trials I didn’t run that fast and to do it at school sports was very shocking,” Smith told NATION SPORT after training with the squad yesterday evening at the National Stadium.
