REPORTS & MEDAL TABLE


ST. KITTS/NEVIS TEAM (by Diana & Eric Francis, with minor editing)

DAY 4 (by Site Manager)

Kevin Arthurton, in probably his first major International Championship event, placed 8th in the 200m finals with an excellent time of 21.05s.  Kevin earlier won his berth in the finals with a personal best of 20.98s (7th best time in the semis).

DAY 3 (by Site Manager)

Kevin Arthurton blazed his way into the finals of the 200 metres, placing 3rd in the third semifinals, with a personal best of 20.98s (7th best time in the semis).  Also performing well was Virgil Hodge with a personal best of 23.85s in her 200m semifinals.

DAY 2

With the Long Jump Men concluded at approximately 8:20p.m., St. Kitts and Nevis was represented by Vaughn Walwyn, who completed the first three rounds of the Loing Jump.  He placed 10th in a field of 15, but was unable to move on to the finals based on his mark. With this being his first event in almost three months he showed signs of maturity and the potential for growth. It is the opinion of Coach Eric Francis that we can only expect better things from this young gentleman in the future.

The St. Kitts and Nevis team will be represented by Kevin Arthurton and Virgil Hodge in the 200m event on Thursday, 7th August. The male 200m preliminaries are scheduled for 9:40a.m. and the male and female 200m semi-finals will be held at 6:40pm and 6:45pm this evening.

DAY 1

The St.Kitts and Nevis team was represented last evening in the semifinals of the 100m men by Delwayne Delaney. He was unsuccessfull in moving on to the finals but ran a very competitive race. He placed 7th in the semi-finals heat with a time of 10.76sec. Danny Esdaille ran 10.90s in his heats and did not advance to the semis.

Today the team will see our new comer to the team Vaughn Walwyn in the Long Jump. Vaughn is a impressive jumper and should give us something to cheer about.


DAY 1 - Tuesday 5th Aug

Trinidad and Tobago’s field athlete Candice Scott won the English-speaking Caribbean’s first track and field medal at 14th Pan American Games yesterday, when she secured bronze in the women’s hammer event, in Santo Domingo. Scott threw the hammer 69.06 metres for third spot behind the Cuban pair of Yunaika Crawford and Yipsy Moreno, who won gold with a new Games record 74.25 metres. She dominated the field and smashed American Dawn Ellerbe’s 1999 record of 65.36 by almost nine metres. Moreno (69.57) secured the silver ahead of Scott, the reigning US Collegiate champion and record holder.

In athletics, T&T’s Niconnor Alexander and Sheldon Morant of Jamaica, won their heats in the men 100 metres and led a group of Caribbean sprinters into the evening’s semi-finals. Alexander won in 10.45 seconds, while Jacey Harper was fifth in 10.57 in his qualifying heat. American Mickey Grimes posted an impressive 10.08 seconds to win heat one and led other heat winners Morant (10.30), Alexander (10.45) and Canadian Anson Henry (10.45) into the semi-finals.

The women’s 100 metres first round was scrapped because not enough competitors had entered for the preliminaries. T&T’s Fana Ashby, the CAC Games 100 metres champion and Kelly-Ann Baptiste advanced to the semis.

Félix Sánchez revs the crowds

Posted by NAAA on 8/7/2003, 7KBFélix Sánchez was yesterday’s star, when he ran in the qualifying round of the 400-meter hurdles. Sánchez outdid the other competitors in his heat by a comfortable margin. The ultra-nationalistic runner took it easy at the end of the race, delighting equally enthusiastic crowds by proudly flaunting the words “Dominican Republic” on his running attire. Sánchez is the country’s best hope for gold at these Pan Am Games and has told the press that it is a nice change to compete with the crowds in his favor. As the reigning 400m hurdles world champion, he is also one of the four athletes to have shared the IAAF Golden League Jackpot last year.

In the hurdles event, Félix Sánchez stopped the clock at 48.99, followed by Regan Nichols of the US (50.01) and Eronildes Araujo, the three-time Pan American champion from Brazil, in third place. The finals will take place today at 7:35pm at the Olympic Stadium. As reported in El Caribe, Sports Minister Cesar Cedeño said that the doors of the Olympic Stadium may possibly be opened to admit any and all Dominicans who want to watch Sánchez compete. Sanchez has asked for a full stadium.


Blackett’s big night - Wednesday 06, August-2003

Posted by NAAA on 8/7/2003, 18KBAndrea Blackett by Sam Wilkinson Santo Domingo – Barbados could get a medal tonight and lift the gloom that has so far surrounded their run at the Pan American Games, here. Last night, “Bajan Queen” Andrea Blackett was a comfortable second in her heat and qualified for today’s final of the women’s 400 metres hurdles, which is slated for 7:20 p.m. at the Olympic Stadium.

Blackett, the Commonwealth Games record holder, who struggled with injuries in recent years, looked sharp and eager last night. She clocked 55.86 seconds to be second to the silky-smooth Joanna Hayes of the United States at 55.64 seconds. Jamaica’s Debbie-Ann Parris, an Olympic and Commonwealth Games finalist, was third in 55.97 seconds. Throughout her race Blackett never appeared troubled. She cleared each hurdle easily and her rhythm looked in tune for a medal.
