Also going close to a medal was Ashley Irby who placed fourth in the under-20 girls 1,500 metres, clocking 4min 54.13sec. she was less than two seconds outside the bronze medal which was won by Guyana’s Kezra Murray in 4:52.88.

Tilly Norman, of Bermuda, was sixth in the under-17 1,500 metres, finishing in a time of 5:04.62. Jessie Marshall finished eighth in 5:06.16.

Clevonte Lodge narrowly missed a bronze medal in the under-17 400 metres, where he placed fifth in a time of 48.93 seconds. The bronze medal was won with a time of 48.42 seconds while the winning time was 47.54. Lodge had the fourth fastest qualifying time (49.23) to finish second in heat two of the preliminaries.

Johndell Cumberbatch finished seventh in the under-20 1,500 metres in a time of 4:12.41 while Ryan Outerbridge placed 10th in the under-17 boys 1,500 metres with a time of 4:30.96. The gold medal was won by a Jamaican in 4:08.73.

Sakari Famous, the team’s other captain, will be in action in the under-20 girls high jump today in the final day of competition. She won one of Bermuda’s two medals last year, claiming a bronze in the under-18 division.
