Othman leaps into action

High jumper Amelia Othman will be the first Bermudian athlete in Carifta Games action when she competes at the Thomas A Robinson National Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas this morning.

Bermuda have a 13-member team at the Games, which Bahamas is playing host to for the eighth time. Clevonte Lodge, who is competing in both the 200 and 400 metres, will see action this morning in the under-17 400 metre heats.

In today's afternoon session, Jessie Marshall and Tilly Norman will compete in the U-17 1,500 metres, followed by Ryan Outerbridge in the U-17 boys 1,500 metres ten minutes later. Elisha Darrell will compete in the U-20 high jump soon after.

Norman and Outerbridge are also competing in the 3,000 metres while Isabelle Dutranoit, one of the first time members of the team, will see action in the U-20 3,000 metres.

The opening ceremony was held last evening with action taking place today, tomorrow and Monday when Sakari Famous will be in action in the U-20 high jump semi-finals in the morning. Famous won a bronze last year, one of two medals the team earned at last year's Carifta Games.

Other members of the Bermuda team are: Taylor Hines (200m), Ashley Irby (1,500m), Johndell Cumberbatch (5,000m), Robert Edwards (5,000m) and Deneo Brangman (400m).
