Mothersill fast in Europe

Cydonie Mothersill continues to churn out high standard results in the 100 and 200 meters.

At Rethymos on the island of Crete, in Greece, she sped to windy 11.12 and 22.74 marks, as he finished second to Rachel Boone- Smith of the United States in both events.

Cydonie will be heading for Cartagena, Colombia, where she will be repre-senting the Cayman Islands in the Central American and Caribbean Games.The ath-letics portion of the multi-sport competition begins on the 25th of July.

In a bizarre prelude to the meet in Greece, Jamaican stars Asafa Powell, Mi-chael Frater, Sherone Simpson, and Bridgette Foster-Hylton were scratched from the competition by meet organizers when they failed to arrive as scheduled from Italy.

According to an Associated Press report, airport officials in Italy refused to allow Asafa to bring his spikes on board as carryon luggage, and he declined to board the flight.Apparently, the other athletes came to the same decision.

Meet organizers have issued a release regarding the ‘unprofessional conduct’ of the athletes.
