On the eve of the World Championships 2015 in Beijing, Team T&T has been rocked by injury to two members of the male 4x100 team. Rondel Sorrillo and Dan-Neil Telesford have been ruled out of the meet after aggravating former injuries.
The team is now down to a "bare four" in the form of Keston Bledman, Kyle Greaux, hurdler Mikel Thomas and Emmanuel Callender. The team already arrived in Beijing deprived of regulars such as Richard Thompson, Marc Burns, Darrel Brown and Marcus Duncan for various reasons.
Now, we have to keep our fingers crossed that nothing else occurs that would result in us having to pull out of the relay entirely!
The games start tomorrow night, Friday 21st, local time.
Medal hopefuls Cleopatra Borel and Jehue Gordon will be first in action for T&T. Borel throws at 2:10am Saturday morning local time, in the Women's Shotput while reigning World Champion Jehue Gordon hopes to end a disappointing season strongly in the 400m hurdles. His first heat runs off at 10:43am Saturday.
