As expected Grenadian Kirani James destroyed his competitions to win the U20 boys 400 metres dash at the XXXIX CARIFTA GAMES in the Cayman Islands on Saturday with a record run.
James clocked a personal best and championship record of 45.02seconds to win by almost 40m over the trailing field.
Finishing second was Trinidad and Tobago’s Deon Lendore, at 46.59, with Jamaica’s Jermaine Gayle taking third in 46.80.
Bahamian Shaynae Miller won the girls’ U17 with a championship record of 53.36.
Lennox Williams of Jamaica clocked 48.01 to win the U17 boys race.
Earlier in the day, Barbadian young star Akela Jones and Jamaica’s Chad Wright set records in the field events.
Jones, just 14-years-old, established a new record for the girls’ U17 High Jump with a 1.85m effort, while Wright left it late to capture the boys’ U20 Discus with a massive effort of 63.11m.
