Zydon Lightbourne-Furbert breaks two Middle School records

Zydon Lightbourne-Furbert blitzed around the track

Zydon Lightbourne-Furbert broke two records at the Bermuda School Sports Federation’s Middle School Track and Field qualifying meet on Monday.

The young Warwick Academy student started the day by breaking the over-13 boys 200 metres record with an impressive time of 22.54 seconds before breaking the 400 metres record in a time of 52.75 seconds. He also finished as the top qualifier in the 100 metres.

In the team event, Saltus Grammar School has soared into a 16-point lead after day one largely thanks to their jumpers.

Leydi Raynor and Jasmine Reid-Rubaine claimed first and second in the under-12 girls long jump, while Chaz Edmead and Jace Postlethwaite won gold in the under 12 and under-13 long jump events. J

Jordan Williams claimed two golds by outjumping everyone in the over-13 triple and high jumps.

The Whitney Institute are within distance of Saltus and string of good performances on the track at the finals will give them a chance to overhaul the team in red.

Hasim Ming showed his versatility by winning the under-12 boys turbo javelin and will also be one of the favourites in the 800 and 1500 metres next week.

Whitney did well in the throwing events, with Jacob Furtado finishing second in both the discus and shot, and Ariah Peets winning the turbo javelin event.

Bermuda High School’s impressive medal haul on day one puts them in third place in the combined male and female points total.

Milan Gibbons-Thomas was their star in the open girls triple jump, while Amara Samuels and Taylor Washington won their respective shot put competitions. Avery-Paiva-Lowe won gold in the turbo javelin

The championships will conclude with more field events and all the track finals on Tuesday, May 14
