BARBADOS CAPTURED THE highest medal tally at the Caribbean Development Boxing Tournament, which ended on Saturday night.

The Bajans captured 17 medals with five gold, eight silver and four bronze.

Four of the gold medals were captured at the Sea Rocks Dome – two going to females – to bring the curtain down on the tournament.

Those wins were something to shout about since on the previous night the hosts had clinched a single gold in five matches.

Kimberly Gittens repeated as welterweight champion after she outfought Cindi Claudio of the US Virgin Islands in four rounds.

Gittens, who captured the Best Female title last year in Guyana, shared the award with track and field star Mary Fraser who also fought above her bracket after competing in the Elite division.
