CARIFTA inspired

With the successful staging of the
CARIFTA Games over the Easter weekend, many more youngsters are aspiring Usain

Many don’t even have to look
further than Cayman’s CARIFTA 100 metres gold medallist, Chantelle Morrison,
for inspiration. She is the fastest 16-year-old in the Caribbean and possibly
the world.

So what would normally be a low key
meeting on Saturday, for the May Day meet at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex,
should be extremely well attended.

Coach Tyrone Yen said there were 75
kids training last week, about 50 per cent more than usual.

The meet starts at 9am and age
groups eligible to participate are 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17 and over.

Events to be contested are: long jump,
high jump, ball throw, shot put, discus, javelin, 100m hurdles, 80m, 100m,
150m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 800m, 1500m and 3000m.

Forms for registration – which
closes on Thursday – can be obtained by contacting Elizabeth Ibeh 925-4763, Coach
Wason 916-6966 or Coach Yen 925-6917. 
Completed forms should be returned to any one of these three people or
emailed to [email protected].
Registration closes on Thursday April 29th, 2010.
