Vincentians cop five medals at regional track meet

Three Vincentian athletes last Saturday at the Barbados National Stadium, combined to pouch five medals at the 2020 hosting of the Joseph Payne Memorial Classis Athletic Championships.

Ulanda Lewis and Nellie Ambriton, earned themselves two medals each, with Amal Glasgow accounting for the other.

Lewis, a double bronze medallist at the 2019 Junior Carifta Games in the Cayman Islands, won gold in the Girls’ Under-17 100m and secured a silver in the Under-20 200m.

Lewis’ winning time in the 100m, was 12.19 seconds, while she stopped the clock in the 200m, at 24.86 seconds.

Both clockings, meant that Lewis attained Team Athletics SVG’s standards for the two events to this year’s Carifta Games in Bermuda.

Meanwhile, Ambriton was ahead of the field, and copped gold in the Male Under-17 400m in a time of 50 seconds.

Ambriton took the bronze in the 800m, timing 2 minutes 00.34 seconds.

And, Glasgow got a bronze in the Male Under-17 400m. Glasgow’s time was 50.72 seconds.

At last Saturday’s event, Lewis represented her club- High Performance, while Ambriton and Glasgow represented XCel Track Club.

Jodeisha Samuel of High Performance and Verrol Sam of X- Cel Track Club, competed as well in the championships.
