What an amazing run on the world stage this July for The Bahamas youth team!
Medal Winners (10 Medals in all)
- Anthonique Strachan started it off on the podium with a bronze in the 100 meters (11.46) that she followed up with a gold in the 200. That golden performance of 22.70 not only earned her the win, but a place in the record books and the world rankings. It was the new Pan Am Junior record and it is the fastest time in the world by a junior athlete this season!
- Latario Collie-Minns etched another medal for the 242 with an strong but unsatisfying bronze in the triple jump with a 50-8 (15.44 meters).
- Then on Sunday night it really lit up for The Bahamas when Katrina Seymour added another gold to the collection with a sizzling 57.87, just off her personal best of 57.82 from Nationals.
- Just an hour later the women notched the first relay medal with A GOLD in the 4x100 with a 45.04 with the baton passed by Devynne Charlton, Carmeisha Cox, V'Alonee Robinson, and Strachan closing it off (giving her three medals around her neck!). That performance took down the Ja by a fairly substantial .33 margin!
- The men's team added another relay medal of the weekend, taking bronze in the 4x100 with a valiant 40.26 performance that was powered by Blake Bartlett, Shavez Hart, Delano Davis and Trevorvano Mackey.
- Tower of a man Ryan Ingraham added a silver medal to the mounting pile of Team Bahamas medals with a 7-3.25 (2.22m) high jump.
- But oh no.. the show wasn't over yet... not even close. College of the Bahamas star Tamara Myers gave The Bahamas another triple jump medal with her 42-2 (12.85m) effort that earned her the silver medal.
- The night was finally concluded by the Men and Women 4x400 Meter Relay, an event which gave The Bahamas an additional two bronze medals. Strachan must be walking around hunched over with all of the weight around her neck by now... she contributed to that team to add a fourth medal, along with Pedrya Seymour, Charlton, and Katrinia Seymour... they ran a 3:42.61, four second behind Canada--would be a lot closer with Shaunae in the mix. The men for their part ran a 3:14.96 bronze medal with Nejmi Burnside, Andre Wells, Hart, and Julian Munroe doing the work.
