DEVONSHIRE, Bermuda — Jamaica is already off to blistering start to the LIME 2012 Carifta Games at the National Sports Center in Devonshire Bermuda.

Leading the way was Demar Gayle, who won the boys’ Shot Put gold medal. Gayle threw a massive 17.31m to take gold over Trinidad and Tobago’s Kenejah Williams, who did 16.75m and Drexel Maycock from the Bahamas, who finished with a mark of 15.67. He just edged out Jamaica’s Shamar Kitson, who did 15.62m.

Also winning gold for Jamaica were Fedrick Dacres, who did 58.57m to take the boys’ U20 Discus Throw event, Sabina Allen – winner of the U20 girls’ Triple Jump and Jehvania White, who took gold in the U17 girls’ High Jump with a clearance of 1.60m.

Conditions at the National Sports Center started out rainy and at times has been cold for some of the athletes, especially the throwers and jumpers, who struggled to keep a consistent rhythm.

“It’s cold and a bit windy so conditions are not really for the throwers,” Dacres said after his winning performance.
