Carifta Team Selected

After a hard fought weekend of performances forty-two (42) athletes and fifteen (15) officials have been selected to represent Trinidad & Tobago at the 45th Carifta Games to be held in St. George’s Grenada from Saturday 26th to Monday 28th March, at the newly refurbished National Stadium.

The athletes will be competing at Under 18 and Under 20 age groups. These age groups are similar to the global competitions such as the World Youth (Under 18) and World Junior (Under 20).

Tyriq Horsford will be returning to defend his gold medal and record-breaking performance from last year, in the Javelin Throw in the boys under-18, while Akanni Hislop who also won gold last year in the boys under-18, 200m dash will be trying to repeat that feat, but this year he will be competing in the boys under-20.

Pan Am Junior 100m Gold; World Youth 100m Silver; World 4x100m bronze medalist, Khalifa St. Fort will be competing at her first Carifta Games and would be leading the charge amongst the girls on their quest for precious metal. St Fort will be competing in the 100m, 200m and 4X100m relay.
