Bermuda Team Going To NACAC Championships

July 22, 2019

Bermuda will be sending a team to the NACAC Age U13 [11&12] & U15 [13&14] Championships which will be held in El Salvador on Friday [July 26] and Saturday [July 27].

Bermuda National Athletics Association President Donna Raynor said, “This competition is similar to a pentathlon and decathlon with the athletes gaining points for each event and the athlete with the most points winning the event.

“The athletes in the U13 age group girls compete in 60m, High Jump, Ball Throw, Long Jump and 800m. The U13 boys compete in 60m, High Jump, Ball Throw, Long Jump and 1000m.

“The U15 age group girls compete in 80m, Long Jump, Shot Put, 60m Hurdles, Ball Throw, 1000m. The U15 boys compete in 80m, Long Jump, Shot Put, 80m hurdles, Ball throw, 1200m.

“We have been having competition for several athletes in this age group for the past several months accumulating points and the athletes that completed the series with the most points were selected for the team. For all of these athletes they have been training very hard in all events but specifically with the hurdles as this will be their first International competition in the hurdles.

“We are confident that these athletes will be competitive in this event. Bermuda has placed well over the past several years and have had persons like Jordan Bascome, Zekiah Lewis, Anaya West, Za’Kayza Parsons who placed in the top 3 in their age group.

“This event is used in the region to identify athletes who could end up competing in the multi-events or to figure out what is an athletes best event to begin preparation for Carifta and of course on to the Olympics.
