Kevon Pierre and Trinidad & Tobago 4x100m team wins SILVER MEDAL at Worlds

The Trinidad and Tobago quartet of Kevon Pierre, Marc Burns, Jacey Harper and Darrel Brown, won the 4x100m Silver medal today at the 2005 World Championships, being held in Helsinki, Finland. They ran a national best time of 38.10s following their world leading time of 38.28s set in the heats. Trinidad and Tobago missed the Gold by 2/100th of a second to France. Pierre ran the first leg of the 4x100m relay handing off the baton in a commanding position to Marc Burns.

Kevon Pierre, who was born in Trinidad, learnt his Track & Field while attending the Charlestown High School in Nevis and later at Morgan State University in Maryland and Florida International University. He competed for Nevis in many local and regional meets and for the Federation in limited regional competitions. Kevon whose intention was always to run for the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis was not given that opportunity at the International level.

Kevon also competed in the 200m at the World Championships but did not progress to the quarterfinals, running 21.24s into a slight headwind in the heats. Kevon is currently ranked No. 36 in the 200m and No. 61 in the World in the 100m. The Nevis Amateur Athletic Association wishes to congratulate him in his sterling SILVER MEDAL performance and wishes him continued success in future International competitions.

KIM COLLINS (2nd from right) WINS 100M WORLD BRONZE MEDAL

From IAAF site:  Alongside Gatlin, Abdul Aziz Zakari GHA, a promising second to Gatlin in his semi in 10.00 into a headwind, was well away alongside Gatlin but as the champion got into top gear the Ghanaian fell dramatically back to finish last. In the meantime Collins was building his trademark workmanlike performance to hold second only to lose it as an inspired Frater forced his way through for silver. As they crossed the line, Gatlin glanced to his left, saw the time and danced over the side to collect the American flag. Frater gave an astonished look as he realised the enormity of what he had done and Collins fell to the track in relief that once again he had confounded the pundits. “People had forgotten all about me,” said Collins. “But that’s the way I like it. It makes me come down the middle when no one is looking for me.” Explaining his up and down form in the qualifying rounds he said he had had calf problems, but in the final all caution was cast to the wind.
