Two more athletes hit Carifta standard
The total number of Bermudian athletes eligible for the Carifta Games climbed to eight after two more met the qualification standard at the weekend.
Ryan Outerbridge achieved the standard in the under-20 menís 5,000 metres, clocking a time of 16min 54.29sec, narrowly under the qualifying time of 17 minutes at the National Stadium at the weekend.
Outerbridge was joined in qualifying by Eleanor Richmond, who threw 36.54 metres in the under-17 javelin, surpassing the minimum standard of 36 metres.
Meanwhile, Ashley Irby came agonisingly close to qualifying in the womenís under-20 1,500, clocking a time of 5:00.65, falling just shy of the standard of 5:00.00.
Outerbridge and Richmond join the likes of Sakari Famous, Amelia Othman, Caitlyn Bobb, Isabelle Dutranoit, Johndell Cumberbatch and Nathan Armstrong in qualifying for the competition, which will be held at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex in the Cayman Islands from April 20 to 22.
Having already qualified Dutranoit competed in the New England Indoor Championships in Boston and placed sixth overall and improved her time in the 3,000, finishing in 10:19.86.
Elsewhere, Shaquille Dill competed in the USC Open Indoor Meet in South Carolina and claimed victory in the 800 in 1:52.88.
Famous won the islandís only medal at the Carifta Games in Nassau, Bahamas, last year. The high jumper has won a medal in all six of her appearances at the regional event.
