More athletes qualify for Carifta Games
A total of 27 Bermuda athletes have now qualified for next month's Carifta Games in Jamaica.
Last night, at the National Sports Centre, Sherwin Herman reached the standard in the 5,000 metres in a time of 16 minutes 54.80 seconds and Zakiyyah Showers met the mark in the 3,000m in a time of 11:09.39.
Bermuda Track and Field Association (BTFA) president Donna Watson said: “Thanks to Jay Donawa who assisted the athletes in the 5,000m. We still have one more meet to go and I am again confident that more athletes will be added to this list. We are up to 27 creeping closer to that 30 number that I am looking for.”
n Bermuda road runner Andy Starr smashed his personal best in last Sunday's New York City Half-Marathon, crossing the finish line in one hour 23 minutes and nine seconds.
He was 336th overall and broke his previous lifetime best, which he set in the Bermuda International Half-Marathon in January, by four minutes.
Starr is currently in training for next month's Boston Marathon.
