“Gaskin, Sealy fail to medal at Pan Am games”


Barbados will have to wait a little longer for their first medal at the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima Peru.

Yesterday’s high hopes of a podium finish were dashed moments ago when Sade Sealy and Sonia Gaskin finished outside of the medals in the women’s 800m.

Sealy came fourth with a lifetime best and new national record time of 2:02.23 while Gaskin placed 8th with a time of 2:05.68.

The race was won by Jamaican Natoya Goule (2:01.26). Cuba’s Rose Mary Blanco took the silver (2:01.64) and Deborah Rodriguez of Uruguay secured the bronze. (AGB)
