Nkrumie, who will start as the leading contender to win the gold medal in the event at the 2022 Boys’ and Girls’ CHAMPS later this year, is expected to continue his preparations for the championships with another 100m outing at the Jamaica Carifta Trials taking place this weekend. The event will take place from Friday March 11 to Sunday March 13.
On the evidence of recent performances, many are already predicting a very exciting Class One boys’ 100m final, with the likes of Brian Levell of Edwin Allen High, St Catherine High’s Sandrey Davison, Gregory Prince of St Jago High, and Deandre Daley of Herbert Morrison Technical, expected to join Nkrumie in the race for one of the blue ribbon events.
The Boys and Girls’ Championships at the National Stadium is slated to take place from April 5-9, 2022.
