2011 CARIFTA GAMES A SUCCESS STORY
TH E R E SU L TS
Despite the lateness in award-
ing the championships to Montego
Bay and the inherent problems
that went along with that, CARIFTA
2011 was a resounding success.
Naturally there were several hiccups on the first day, but the LOC
were nonetheless able to produce
a first-class event. While there
were a few “back room” challenges none of this affected either
the competition or the athletes
who were comfortably with the
food, accommodation and transportation provided by the LOC.
Officials, security, team managers and sponsors did everything
possible to ensure that athletes
competing in the 2011 Carifta
Games would have a memorable experience,
and
the
consensusis it was indeed pleasantly memorable. Competitors
and spectators to the Games felt
that the venue, the Montego Bay
Sports Complex, was an excellent
choice as was the choice of the
Grand Palladium Hotel and Spa for
the Carifta Village.
President of the IAAF, Mr Lamine
Diack, who had a prior commitment in Africa which could not be
cancelled, was ably represented
by CEO of Pamodzi Sports
Marketing and IAAF Marketing
Advisor Mr. Pape Massata Diack.
Pape Diack spoke highly of the
facilities at which the Games were
held, the excitement of the
Games; the enthusiasm and the
hospitality of the Jamaican people. He promised to be a fixture
(like the President) at all future
Carifta Games.

April 23 - 25, 2011
Jamaica copped yet another
regional junior track and field
championships as they topped the
medals tables at the 40th Lime
CARIFTA Games inside the
Montego Bay Sports Complex.
Although the regional champions
won “only” 66 medals this year,
they dominated the
final session in front a
sold-out grandstand on
a balmy Caribbean
day, which was in sharp
contrast to the previous
two days of blazing
heat.

RESIDENT’S MESSAGE
MENSAJE DEL PRESIDENTE
Dear Colleagues,
The approaching IAAF Congress in Daegu,
Korea, is a clear signal that we are at the end of
another administrative period in our region.
There have been many challenges during the
period under review but I feel quite confident
that the administration in confronting these challenges, has achieved the best results for an on
behalf of our member federations.
Firstly, there was some concern about the level
of ongoing communication coming from the
regional office, a situation that was given the
priority attention it deserved. The quarterly
newsletter coupled with what we can now refer
to as an excellent website has kept our members informed about our daily activities. I would
like to personally thank all, especially those federations that kept us abreast with the athletic
activities in their countries.
As I reflect on what has taken place in our
region during the past two years, the most telling
statistic has been the growth of athletic performances by just about all the member federations within the NACAC area. I think it is worth
repeating that in my view this growth isdue to
the work of many new leaders in the region, and
the assurance and support given toothers to
resuscitate their programmes. There is no doubting that the NACAC administration has responded positively to the requests of member federations in support of new or ongoing programmes
and the athletics results achieved in Berlin are
just the beginning of what can be done through
positive leadership from those who aspire to
lead.
The IAAF administration is quite satisfied with the
many member federations who have come forward to host events and the region will continue
to provide support in various ways in order to
keep costs to member federations as low as
possible.
I could not end this message without applauding the work done by our members in submitting
their annual reports to the IAAF on time. We are
aware that there are clarifications and additional information required from some members
which I trust have been addressed.
On behalf of the NACAC Board, please accept
our sincere thanks for the overall support given
by members as we strive to provide the leadership you elected us to give and I look forward to
seeing you all, firstly in Mayaguez, and then in
Daegu, Korea.
Estimados colegas:
El próximo Congreso de la IAAF que se celebrará
en Daegu, Corea, es una clara señal de que
estamos terminando otro período administrativo
en nuestra región. Han habido muchos retos
durante este período bajo revisión, pero me siento bastante seguro de que la administración ha
hecho frente a esos retos y ha logrado los mejores
resultados por parte de nuestras federaciones
miembros.
En primer lugar, existe cierta preocupación acerca del nivel de la consistencia de la comunicación proveniente de la oficina regional, asunto
que se le dio la atención prioritaria merecida. El
boletín trimestral junto a la que nos podemos
referir como un excelente sitio web, ha mantenido informados a nuestros miembros acerca
de nuestras actividades diarias. Me gustaría
agradecer personalmente a todos, especialmente a aquellas federaciones que nos hayan
mantenido informados de las actividades
deportivas en sus países respectivos.
Al reflexionar sobre lo que ha ocurrido en nuestra
región durante los dos últimos años, la estadística
más notable ha sido el mejoramiento en el
desempeño de los atletas de casi todas las federaciones miembros en la zona de NACAC. Creo
que vale la pena repetir en mi opinión, este
mejoramiento se debe al trabajo de muchos
nuevos líderes de la región, y la garantía y el
apoyo extendidos a otros para resucitar a sus programas. No hay duda de que la administración
NACAC ha respondido positivamente a las peticiones de las federaciones miembros, brindando
apoyo a los nuevos programas o a los que están
en curso. Los resultados obtenidos en el atletismo
de Berlín representan el comienzo de lo que se
puede lograr a través de un liderazgo positivo de
aquellas personas que aspiren dirigir.
La administración IAAF está satisfecha con el
número de miembros de las federaciones
quienes han organizado los eventos en la región,
continuaremos ofreciendo apoyo de diferentes
formas con el fin de mantener a los miembros de
las federaciones a un bajo costo.
No podría terminar este mensaje sin aplaudir el
trabajo realizado por nuestros miembros al por
presentar sus informes anuales a la IAAF a tiempo.
Estamos consientes de que hay clarificaciones e
información adicional requerida por algunos
miembros los cuales confío han sido abordado.
En nombre de la junta NACAC, favor de aceptar
nuestro más sincero agradecimiento por todo el
apoyo brindado por los miembros mientras nos
esforzamos por ofrecer un liderazgo por el cual se
nos ha elegido. Espero verlos a todos primero en
Mayaguez y luego en Daegu, Corea.

HARRIGAN-SCOTT - ENDS BRAZILIAN TOUR WITH 11.14 SECONDS
HARRIGAN-SCOTT TERMINA SU GIRA BRASILEÑA CON 11, 14 SEGUNDOS
In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,
Tahesia Harrigan-Scott closed
her four race Brazilian tour with
a scintillating 100m victory that
saw her coming within .01 of
her 11.13 best.
She ended Nigeria's
Oludamola Osayemi winning
streak with her 11.14 time turning
back
the
2010
Commonwealth
Games
champ who was stripped of
the medal because of a doping violation - and ran 11.17.
Harrigan-Scott's 11.14 is among
the top 15 female time in the
world so far
this season. With the exception
of 2008 when she was hampered by a foot injury, the territory's double sprint record
holder has run 11.17 or faster
annually since 2006.
Harrigan-Scott who opened
her tour by meeting the
London Olympic Games “B”
qualifying standard when she
ran 11.33 seconds, also had an
11.26 which is an Olympic
Games “A” qualifier, a disappointing 11.53 in a slow race
before dropping last night's
time.
En Río de Janeiro, Brasil,
Tahesia Harrigan-Scott terminó
su gira brasileña donde corrió
en cuatro eventos con una victoria increíble en los 100 metros
que vio acercarse a 0, 01 de su
marca mejor de 11,13. Se paró
la buena racha de Oludamola
Osayemi de Nigeria con su
tiempo de 11, 14 - volviendo al
campeón de los juegos de la
Commonwealth de 2010 quien
fue despojado de la medalla a
causa de una violación de
dopaje - y corrió 11, 17. El tiempo de 11, 14 de Harrigan-Scott
se encuentra entre las 15
mujeres mejores tiempos del
mundo hasta ahora esta temporada. Con la excepción de
2008 cuando tenía una lesión
en el pie, la poseedora del
récord actual de dos lisos se ha
corrido 11, 17 o más rápido al
año desde 2006.
Harrigan-Scott quien empezó su
gira por calificándose para los
juegos olímpicos 'B' de Londres
cuando corrió 11, 33 segundos,
también tuvo un 11, 26 que es
un clasificado de los juegos
olímpicos 'A,' un tiempo decepcionante de 11, 53 en una carrera lenta antes de bajar el
tiempo de la noche pasada .

ASHLEY KELLY JOINS CHANTEL MALONE IN NCAA
TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS
ASHLEY KELLY SE UNE CON CHANTEL MALONE EN
EL CAMPEONATO NCAA DE ATLETISMO
occurió en la segunda ronda, Malone
catapultó enfrente de todos en el
triple salto en la quinta ronda y estuvo a media pulgada de su marca
mejor legal.
Illinois Jr. Ashley Kelly punched
her first ticket to the, NCAA Track
and Field Championships in Des
Moines, Iowa, joining Texas
Longhorns' Sr. Chantel Malone,
after using a personal best effort
to finish fourth in her 400m heat
and snatched one of the 12 spots
from the NCAA West Regional
Championships
in
Eugene,
Oregon.
El BVI 2010 Sol atleta femenina Jr. del
año hizo su mejor marca en la quinta
ronda cuando ella se hizo mejor que
el líder por media pulgada con su
marca ganadora de 13, 23 metros
(43'5"), agregando el triple salto como
su segundo evento individual en el
campeonato de la NCAA ajunto con
el salto de longitud en el que fue
cuarto con un salto de 6, 35 metros
(20'10"). El hecho que Malone y Kelly
están competiendo en el campeonato de la NCAA marca la primera vez
en la historia del territorio que dos
atletas se encuentran simultáneamente en la División I del campeonato.
Kelly chopped .12 from her previous best of 53.07 set last year,
with the sixth best time of the
meet, when the clock stopped at
52.95 seconds-the third best time
in Illinois' storied history.
In the 200m, Kelly advanced to
her first quarterfinal after running
24.16 seconds, then placed eight
in her heat in 24.41. Kelly-who had
a busy competition-helped the
Fighting Illini to a third place finish
in the 4x100m relay behind
Chantel Malone who led off the
Texas Longhorns squad and
passed off to St. Croix's Allison
Peter, en route to wining in 44.00,
while Illinois ran 44.52 as both
teams advanced to the NCAA
Championships. Kelly ended her
three days of running with a second leg carry on the 4x400m
relay that ran 3:40.78 to place a
non advancing fifth in its heat.
Meanwhile, lurking in fourth
place with a windy (+2.4 mps)
leap of 12.92m (42'4_”) that came
in the second round, Malone
uncorked a fifth round Triple Jump
effort that vaulted her to the top
of the pile and came within _” of
her legal best.
The 2010 Sol BVI Jr. Female
Athlete of the Year, made her fifth
round bound her best when she
went _” better than the leader
with her 13.23m (43'5”) winning
mark, adding the Triple Jump as
her
second
NCAA
Championships individual event
to the Long Jump in which she
was fourth with a 6.35m (20'10”)
leap. Malone and Kelly competing in the NCAA Championships
marks the first time in the territory's
history that two athletes are simultaneously
in
Division
I
Championships competition.
Ashley Kelly, la junior de Illinois, ganó
su lugar en el campeonato NCAA de
atletismo en Des Moines, Iowa, uniéndose a Chantel Malone, una atleta
de los Texas Longhorns en su último
año. Después de usar un mejor esfuerzo personal para terminar en el lugar
cuarto en su eliminatorio de los 400
metros y grabó uno de los 12 lugares
de los campeonatos de la NCAA en
Eugene, Oregon.
Portland State's Karene King-the
Big Sky Conference double sprint
champ-had a disappointing
meet starting with the 100m that
saw her only running 11.97 seconds. She had a non-advancing
24.57 seconds in the 200m before
anchoring her team's 4 x 100m
relay that had a non-advancing
seventh place showing in 46.13.
At the High School level,
Shenique Frett, a Weequhic High
School Jr. became the second
BVI athlete behind Chantel
Malone to make qualifying standards in an IAAF World Youth
Championships in three events,
when she won the New Jersey
State High School Championships
Section 1 400m in Basking Ridge.
Kelly bajó su marca de 53, 07 del
año pasado por 0, 12 segundos, con
el sexto mejor tiempo del encuentro,
cuando el reloj se detuvo en 52, 95
segundos - el tercero mejor tiempo en
la historia de Illinois.
En los 200 metros, Kelly avanzó al
cuarto de final por la primera vez
después de correr 24,16 segundos, y
luego ocupó el octavo lugar en su
eliminatorio en 24,41. Kelly, quien tenía
una competencia muy ocupada,
ayudó a Illinois al tercer puesto en el
relevo 4x100 metros detrás de
Chantel Malone, quien guió el equipo
de Texas Longhorns y pasó el testigo a
Allison Peter de St. Croix, antes de
ganar en un tiempo de 44, 00 mientras que Illinois tuvo un tiempo de
44,52 ya que ambos equipos avanzaron al campeonato de la NCAA.
Kelly terminó tres días de correr en el
relevo 4x400 metros con un tiempo de
3:40.78 para el quinto lugar, pero no
avanzaron en el eliminatorio.
Frett's 57.53 seconds run,
eclipsed the 57.68 she ran during
the
County
Individual
Championships last week in Mont
Clair, where she also recorded
personal bests of 12.46 for second
in the 100m and a 24.98 winner in
the 200m. Each mark was under
the
IAAF
World
Youth
Championships qualifying time.
Her performances qualified her
for All Group Championships on
Friday and Saturday in Plainfield.
She has also qualified to the U.S.
National
High
School
Championships in North Carolina.

Karene King de Portland State, la
campeona doble de la conferencia
Big Sky, tuvo un encuentro decepcionado empezando con los 100 metros en que tuvo un tiempo de 11, 97

segundos que no le permitía avanzar
en los 200 metros antes de correr el
último revelo para su equipo en el

RECORD BREAKING-YEAR FOR THE MEN'S 100M
ANNÉE-RECORD POUR LE 100 MÈTRES MASCULIN;
By Mathieu Gentès
When Yohan Blake (9.95) of
Jamaica and Christophe Lemaitre
(9.96) of France dipped under the
10 second mark in Montreuil-sousBois they became the 14th and
15th sprinters to dip under the
magic barrier in 2011. 15 sprinters
under 10-seconds in the 100metres breaks the previous record
of 14 from 2008.
Canadian track and field fans
will have the unique opportunity
of seeing Yohan Blake live in
action July 13 at the Toronto
International Track & Field Games.
Blake will line-up at University of
Toronto's Varsity Centre hoping to
break Usain Bolt's stadium record
of 10.00 seconds set in 2009. Blake
dipping below 10-seconds in
Toronto would be the first such
performance on Canadian soil
since 2001.
The Toronto
International Track & Field Games
serve as the final stop in the inaugural National Track League (NTL)
series.
In an interview with the BBC a
few weeks ago Bolt said about
Blake that, “This kid is like a beast,
if you see him in training, he strives
to beat me every day in training.
He works so hard and he's going
to be really good.” Bolt added in
the piece that his young training
partner keeps him on his toes and
keeps him at the top of his game,
“He tells me I'm going to beat you,
I keep telling him no, it's not going
to happen. That keeps me on my
toes - because I see how hard he
works.”
Another member of the 2011
sub-10 second club will also be
making an appearance on the
National Track League circuit;
Travis Padgett of the United
States will race in Victoria on

Il y a quelques semaines, lors
d'une entrevue avec la BBC, Bolt
a dit à propos de Blake : « Ce gars
est comme une bête, si vous le
voyez à l'entraînement, il vise me
battre à chaque jour à l'entraînement. Il travaille très fort et il
deviendra vraiment bon ». Bolt a
jouté au cours de l'entrevue que
son jeune compagnon d'entraînement le garde aux aguets, ainsi
qu'au sommet de sa forme. « Il
me dit qu'il va me battre. Je lui
rétorque toujours que non, ça
n'arrivera jamais. Ainsi, je reste sur
mes gardes, car je vois qu'il s'entraîne fort. »
Un autre membre du club des

With just under a month to
go before the inaugural
National Track League (NTL)
kicks off with the Edmonton
International Track Classic the
NTL and its five member meets
have been busy confirming
athletes.
Shot put ace Dylan Armstrong
from Kamloops, BC and hurdling queen Perdita Felicien of
Pickering, ON headline the
inaugural season of the
National
Track
League.
Armstrong, the current leader
in the IAAF shot put Diamond
Race, and two-time World
Champion Felicien will both
use the NTL as they prepare an
assault on the podium at this
summer's World Championships in Korea.
Joining Felicien in the hurdles are a pair of up and comers in Phylicia Geroge and
Nikkita Holder, remarkably all
threewomen originate from
the Pickering/Markham area.
Rookies George and Holder
will both prove to be strong
competition for the veteran
Felicien. George has steadily
improved with each outing this
season and this past weekend
dipped below 13-seconds registering the World Championships A standard. Rounding
out the hurdle field at this time
is Angela Whyte of Edmonton,
AB. Whyte is a tough competitor who is always in the mix at
the finish line. The two-time
Olympian has a bronze medal
from the 2007 Pan American
Games and a silver medal from
the
2010
Commonwealth
Games.
Another event shaping up as
can't miss is the men's high
jump which will feature Mark
Dillon of Bowmanville, ON, Mike
Mason of Nanoose Bay, BC
and Derek Watkins of Windsor,
ON.
Dillon won silver at the
2008
&
2009
Canadian
Championships; Mason owns 4Canadian
Championship
medals, won gold at the 2004
World Junior Championships
and was an Olympian in 2008;
Watkins, who was second at
last year's nationals, is the current season leader in the high
jump with a performance of
2.18-metres.
On top of taking aim at one
of the ten available NTL titles,
participating athletes will have
a chance to earn Canadian
only prize money in NTL identified events and through NTL

nated with Jeter winning the
100m in a world leading time of
10.70. Fraser-Pryce finished a disappointing 4th in 10.95; American
Marshevet Myers finished 2nd in
10.86 with Jamaica's Kerron
Stewart third in 10.87.
In a race was delayed by
three false starts Mullings went on
to nip Tyson Gay on the line at
the Adidas Grand Prix at Ichan
Stadium later in June - both runners were timed at 10.26.
Jamaica's Steve Mullings
clocked a personal best 9.80 to
win the 100m at the Pefontaine
Classic in Oregon early in June,
the time was also the third fastest
time on American soild and the
sixth fastest ever behind Usain
Bolt, Tyson Gay, Asafa Powell,
Nesta Carter and retired
American Maurice Greene.
At the same event the first
meeting between Jamaica's
Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce and
American Carmelita Jeter culmi-
Usain
Bolt set the
quickest time in the
world this season as
he eased to victory in
the 200 metres at the
Diamond

Bislett Games.
The Jamaican world
record holder raced
through the rain at
the Bislett Games to
win convincingly in
19.86
seconds.
Norwegian Jaysuma
Saidy Ndure was second in 20.43, while
Mario Forsythe of
Jamaica was third in
20.49.
Bolt said he was very
pleased with a time
that went some way
to answering his critics as he tunes up his
technique ahead of
this year's worlds in South Korea, which run from August 27. "I was
never really out of business," Bolt said after the race. "Business was
just a bit slow."

CAYMAN'S MOTHERSILL JOINS WADA
Cayman Islands sprinter
Cydonie Mothersill
Cayman
Islands sprinter Cydonie
Mothersill, recently created history by
becoming the first athlete from the
Caribbean region to be selected to
the World Anti-Doping Agency
(WADA) Athlete Committee.
Cydonie said she is honored to serve
as a representative for all sportsmen
and women, and believes that it is
important for WADA officials to understand the unique challenges athletes
face as they push themselves daily to
reach the top. She also said that she
hoped to support WADA in developing
sensible and effective drug detection
and prevention strategies.
Mothersill, who won her country's first
international gold medal, when she
minded
Gold
at
the
2010
Commonwealth Games in 2010, also
secured no less than three top podium
places on the international athletics circuit in the 200m last year. Her first victory
- in Cork, Ireland, then in Rethynmo
Greece, followed by a repeat win at the
Central American and Caribbean
(CAC) Games in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
Her other outstanding performances in
2010 included a 3rd place finish in the
200m and gold in the 4x100m relay at
the IAAF/VTB Bank Continental Cup in
Split, Croatia.
As a member of this committee,
Mothersill will also assist in raising awareness about anti-doping and will act as
liaison between WADA and international
and regional sporting organizations, as
well as governments on the subject of
anti-doping initiatives.
Her tenure on the WADA Committee
started in January 2011 and she will
serve for three years.
TYSON OUT OF WORLDS
NACAC Newsletter - June 2011
Sad news came to track and
field fans recently when US sprinter Tyson Gay withdrew from the
100m at the US Athletics
Championships held recently in
Eugene, Oregon, with an injury,
ending his hopes of competing in
the event at the World
Championships in August. This
ends his hopes of competing in
the event at the World
Championships in August against
sprint king Usain Bolt and his other
rivals.
Gay, who was seen as the only
real threat to Jamaica's Usain
Bolt in the men's 100m, withdrew from the second round
after placing second in his firstround race, citing a hip injury.
Veronica Campbell Brown, a
close friend and former teammate of Gay's at Barton County
Junior College, “it's unfortunate
what happened to Tyson. Our
sport is the better with a healthy
Tyson and I wish him a speedy
recovery”.
Training partners of the injured
sprinter, Jamaican Steve Mullings
and Nickel Asheade, have
voiced disappointment that the
American will miss the IAAF World
Championships in Daegu, South
Korea.
Word is that Gay is still eligible
for the US relay pool in Daegu,
but said in a TV interview following his withdrawal from the trials, that he did not earn the
place so he would pass.

metres. In the junior men's
10km race walk, Benjamin
Thorne improved upon Evan
Dunfee's Canadian junior race
walk record clocking in at
41:34; Dunfee's old record was
set in 2009 at 41:55.
As
the
Canadian
Championships came to a
close, day four brought on
some amazing performances.
One highlight was the men's
shot
put
where
Dylan
Armstrong (Kamloops) shattered his Canadian record and
re-established the International
Association
of
Athletics
Federation (IAAF) 2011 World
leading throw of 22.21 metres.
Earlier this season Armstrong
set a Canadian record of 21.72
metres; today all four of his
measured throws bettered that
mark.
In the women's 100m hurdles
Perdita Felicien (Over the Top)
won her tenth Canadian
Championship in 12.80 seconds. Phylicia George (Project
Athletics) finished with the silver in 12.89 seconds. After
along wait in the starting area,
it appeared Nikkita Holder
PERDITA FELICIEN
would be disqualified from the
championships for a false start.
Nikkita was allowed to race
under a protest and was later
reinstated with the bronze
medal.
Securing the ultimate feat, the
sprint
double,
Crystal
Emmanuel (Flying Angels) won
the 200-metres today in 22.99
seconds.
Yesterday
she
secured the 100-metre championship and is the first to capture both titles since Erica
Witter in 2003.
Two other Canadian records
were bettered today; in the
men's F33 classification shot
put, Robert Hughes (Sarnia
Athletics) improved his own
mark by 1-centimetre to take
the Canadian record to 8.99
à remporter les deux titres
depuis Erica Witter en 2003.
Comme
le Championnat
canadien se terminait, le Jour
4
a
apporté
quelques
superbes performances.
Le
fait saillant d'aujourd'hui fut le
lancer du poids masculin où
Dylan Armstrong (Kamloops),
de Kamloops, C.B., a fracassé
son record canadien et rétabli
la meilleure performance de la
saison de l'Association internationale des fédérations d'athlétisme (IAAF) avec un lancer
de 22,21 mètres. Plus tôt, au
cours de la saison, Armstrong a
établi un record canadien de
21,72 mètres; aujourd'hui, ses
quatre bons lancers ont battu
cette marque.
Au 100 mètres haies féminin,
Perdita Felicien (Over the Top),
de Pickering, Ont., a gagné
son dixième championnat
canadien en 12.80 secondes.
Phylicia
George
(Project
Athletics), de Markham, Ont., a
terminé avec la médaille d'argent en 12.89.

Each athlete's performance will be
given a score and the athlete with the
highest cumulative score in each category wins the division. The top eight athletes in each event in each division will
collect awards-with ribbons going from
positions 4-8. Some 16 of the 21 teams
have the maximum allowable eight
athletes and they will also compete for
the team title, which goes to the team
with the highest cumulative score from
all their participants.
Awards ceremony blocks are planned
at 12:30 p.m. each day following the
completion of the morning events and
again at 6:30 p.m following the afternoon session. The opening ceremony
will be held on Friday, July 1, preceding
