MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica (CMC) – Adrian Williams smashed a long-standing record to hand St Kitts and Nevis their first gold medal of the 40th CARIFTA Games, as he won the Boys’ Under-17 javelin here yesterday for the second year running.

Competing in the morning session of the Games at the Catherine Hall Sports Complex, the impressive Williams recorded a throw of 60.15 metres to eclipse the previous record of 59.39 metres set by Kerry Edwards of Trinidad and Tobago 18 years ago.

St Lucian Denzil St Marthe measured 58.91m to be second while Williams’ teammate J’Anthon Sillidy captured bronze with a throw of 55.01m. Despite his outstanding performance, Williams was still short of his personal best of 62.54 which he recorded earlier this month in Basseterre at the National Championships, which served as a qualifier for the CARIFTA campaign. That mark also qualified Williams for the IAAF World Youth Championship to be staged in France in July.

Williams, who won silver at the Central American and Caribbean Junior Championships in Santo Domingo last year, measured 57.86 metres when he won the CARIFTA title in Cayman Islands last year.
Adrian Williams of St Kitts-Nevis repeated as under-17 Javelin Throw champion. A World Youth qualifier from earlier in the season, Williams threw 60.15m for first place and a new CARIFTA Games record, eclipsing the 18-year-old mark of 59.38m established by Kerry Edwards of Trinidad & Tobago in 1993. Denzil St Marthe of St Lucia hit 58.91m to finish second, with J'Anthon Sillidy of St Kitts-Nevis 55.01m for third. Sadly, few saw what would be the only record performance of the day, as the event was concluded at the tail end of the morning session.
