Jake Brislane proudly displays his silver medal

Jake Brislane picked up his second medal at the Carifta Games with a superb run to finish second in the boys under-20 5,000 metres.

Brislane, who won a bronze medal in the 1,500 metres on the opening day of competition on Saturday, went one better on Monday night with a fantastic run to grab the silver medal.

The 19-year-old had finished third in this event last year but hopes were high he could improve on that despite the presence of future world star Tafari Waldron, from Trinidad & Tobago.

Waldron did indeed bring home the gold medal, finishing more than 40 seconds clear of the field in a time of 15min 01.60sec and while Brislane was some way adrift of the Trinidadian, stopping the clock at 15:42.42, he finished nearly 20 seconds ahead of Waldron’s compatriot Omare Thompson, who finished third.

Brislane is the only Bermuda representative to pick up a track and field medal at this year’s Carifta Games but Miles Outerbridge did make it into the final of the boys under-17 200 metres, finishing seventh in a time off 22.63sec
