Five of the Cayman Islands’ top track and field performers, including three who competed at the recent CAC Senior Championships in Cali, Colombia, left yesterday, for Toluca, Mexico, and the NACAC Under 23 Championships.
Tyrell Cuffy, who is listed for the 100 metres and 200 metres dash events, Carl Morgan, who will participate in the long jump and triple jump, and Carlos Morgan, who will line up in the long jump and javelin throw, will be joined by Rhymiech Adolphus, as members of a 4 x 100m relay squad.
Perry Anglin will contest the high jump. John-Paul Clarke will conduct the coaching duties and Elizabeth Ibeh will act as manager.
The NACAC meet brings together top athletes aged 20, 21, and 22, from Canada, the United States, Central America, and the Caribbean.
Toluca is located approximately one hour from Mexico City, and at an altitude of 9,000 feet, is the highest city in Mexico.
One of the peculiarities of this meet is that, according to the program of events, the great majority of the competition will take place during the morning hours, with no separate afternoon or evening sessions scheduled.
Although the information received from the local organising committee in Mexico has been minimal, the members of the Cayman delegation have managed to prepare themselves adequately and hope to achieve satisfactory results.
