July 14, 2022 | 0 Comments

Bermuda’s elite and senior track and field athletes are set for major competitions this summer; Jah Nhai Perinchief will be at the World Championship in Eugene, Oregon later this month, and following that Jah Nhai Perinchief, Caitlyn Bobb, Sakari Famous, Tiara DeRosa and Dage Minors will be competing in the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, England,

BNAA President Dr Freddie Evans notes that the NACAC Open Championships, to be held from August 19th – 20th, will serve as the last meet of the season for the BNAA.

Dr Evans explained that winners of individual events at the 2022 NACAC Open Championship will be treated as having qualified for the World Athletics Championships, which is scheduled for Budapest, Hungary in 2023.

The BNAA President recently approached the NACAC leadership to confirm that the regulations had not been changed from allowing NACAC Champions an open invitation to the next World Games and called it an “exciting opportunity for Bermudian athletes” as the BNAA hopes to send a team of 20 or more to the Championship.

“Although late in the season, it is a great opportunity for aforementioned athletes as well as collegiate stars like Ryan Outerbridge [5000m], Mykal Dill, [Long Jump] Katura Bulford Trott [200m, 400m] ZaKayza Parson [100m, LJ] and Nirobi Smith Mills [800m]. Bermuda is eager to see how our National Record holders in the women’s 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relays teams fair in the competition. Also BNAA is expecting to send a men’s 4 x 400m team to these games,” he said.

“Clearly, NACAC is anxious to have its best athletes at the Open Championships in Grand Bahama, 19 – 21 August. What better reason to be there than a guaranteed qualifying sport for the World Championships in Hungary.”
