After staging last year’s championships without fans in the stands, this year’s CHAMPS will welcome the return of supporters while the organizers have also made a few adjustments to the schedule to balance out the excitement each day.
The Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) also revealed earlier this year that spreading the finals across the entire five days would allow for athletes to recover sufficiently between their respective events and the coaches were absolutely on board with the new format.
This year, the prediction books are showing that Kingston College (KC) boys and Edwin Allen girls will start the event as CHAMPS 2022 favorites based on their respective depth in quality and performances thus far in the earlier season.
However, defending champion Jamaica College (JC) is just as confident heading into the championships, while although Calabar hasn’t been having the best of year, the former champion will be aiming for at least a top-three spot. St Jago, Wolmer’s, Excelsior High, Herbert Morrison, and St Elizabeth Technical are also expected to be among the top five contenders this year.
On the girls’ side, meanwhile, many times reigning champion Edwin Allen is expected to deliver again.
Their main challengers should be Hydel, St Jago, Holmwood Technical, and Vere Technical. Excelsior High and Immaculate will also be aiming to battle for top five places as well.
Among the featured athletes to look out for are the Clayton twins Tina and Tia, Briana Lyston, Brian Levell, Deandre Daley, Nkrumie Bouwhajgie, along with several others.
ISSA said last week that the sale of tickets for this year’s championships has been going very well so we can expect to see the crowd participating from the stands each day.
