St Kitts and Nevis have been chosen to host the 2015 CARIFTA Games, while the 2016 Games will be held in Grenada. Both islands have hosted the Games before, with St Kitts and Nevis last hosting in 2008, while Grenada last hosted in 2000.

Grenada was chosen as host venue for the 2016 games, an interest which had also been expressed by Turks and Caicos Islands, St Lucia and The Bahamas, who submitted Letters of Intent. However according to the Jamaica Observer, St Lucia pulled out to support Grenada, while the Bahamas backed down in support of Turks and Caicos Islands.

Kyrah Scraders was the island’s top performer with two medals including a gold, while Sakari Famous [high jump], Jahnai Perinchief [high jump], and Dage Minors [1500m] also added to Bermuda’s medal tally.
