The two-day meet concluded at the National Stadium in Kingston, on Sunday evening, and there were several highlighting performances.

One of the standout performers at the meet on Sunday was Kingston College star quarter-miler Akeem Bloomfield, who captured the Under-20 Boys 400m title.

Bloomfield, in his first outing of the season, captured the title in a solid time of 46.51 seconds and he was eager to test his fitness ahead next week’s Boys and Girls’ Champs 2016.

The 19-year-old entered Sunday’s final as the favourite and the man with the fastest qualifying time from Saturday (47.44), and he quickly set the stage for another good time after taking control of the race from the gun and running a fast 200m.

“I ran the first 200m very hard, and after covering the rest of the runners, I slowed down as there was no challenge for me,” he was quoted as saying in the Jamaica Observer.

Bloomfield, who posted the fastest time for Class One boys this season, has a personal best of 44.93 seconds, set at Champs 2015.

Finishing second was St Jago High’s Sean Bailey, who finished strong in the second half of the race to cross the line in 46.76 seconds while Terry Thomas of Greater Portmore took third in 47.76 seconds.

Another standout performance on Sunday’s Carifta Trials came in the Boys’ Under-18 110m hurdles finals where Florida-based Damion Thomas raced away to victory in the Boys’ Under-18 110 metres hurdles final.

The 16-year-old Thomas was born in the United States, but opted to represent Jamaica per his father’s request. He clocked 13.73 seconds to win the event and finished ahead of Oquendo Bernard of Jamaica College, 13.97 seconds.
