Jumpers Sprint | Sprinters Jump
In its second year, the Central Hurdles and Relays Meet has fast become a favourite on the MCTF schedule. The meet was not overcrowded, often ran ahead of schedule and was centred by a fitting ceremony honouring the achievements of Olympic gold medallist, Deon Hemmings. Kudos to Jerry Holness and his team.

MCTF fielded a team of thirty student-athletes across the flat hurdles and sprint relays. While there were some excellent performances, overall the times were subdued because of heavy negative winds. Patrick Campbell and Myles Chingara took medal positions in the Class II 110mH and 400mH respectively. Newcomer Jevaughn Jackson took 4th in the Class II 110mH with an impressive run for his second time ever over the sticks. The relay teams also performed well highlighted by the performance of the mile relay squad that finished second in 3:18:83. The team entered as the meet record holders having won last year's inaugural. This year we were led off by National Long Jumper, Dexter Mckenzie (above left) who filled in at the last minute and split 48.2. Rolando Reid took the baton around in 50.9, Jodi-Rae Blackwood in 47.9 and Erroll Davis in 51.2.
