Bajan duo take U-19 gold


DOMINICK SCANTLEBURY and Kennie King rose from a game down to give Barbados Under-19s their lone gold when badminton’s CAREBACO youth tournament climaxed on Sunday at the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex.

Scantlebury, who appeared in two other finals, seemed to be missing out in the men’s double after a lukewarm start by partner King handed Trinidad and Tobago’s Leon Cassie and Vance Juteram the advantage.

However, King awoke from his stupor to help his partner to pound their opponents 18-21, 21-11, 21-8.

Scantlebury, a national junior volleyballer, and six-footer King showed their leaping ability to unleash their attacking strength, which stunned even the normally animated Cassie. (KB)
