Conolly off to Colombia

A young Caymanian sprinter is taking on South American competition.

Rashaun Conolly will be representing the Cayman Islands at the “International Youth Athletics Grand Prix.” The meet is being held in Colombia until Nov. 30. Conolly left Cayman on Thursday, with plans to return next week, to compete in the Under-18 Boys 200 meter event. Coach Jerry Holness from the Brac is accompanying Conolly, who runs with the Mustang Track Club. This weekend’s meet is billed as a qualifier for the International Association of Athletics Federations 2015 World Youth Championships in Cali, Colombia.

Conolly is no stranger to representing Cayman, having done so at the 2014 CARIFTA Games in Martinique earlier this year.
