PRESIDENT of the National Association of Athletics Administration (NAAA), Ephraim Serrette, yesterday heaped praise on the national female athletes after some fine performances at the NGC/Sagicor NAAA National Senior Championships held at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo, last weekend.
The Rebirth champion runner held-off a very strong field to win the women’s 100 metres crown with a new national and championship record time of 10.82 seconds on the Second day of the NGC/Sagicor/NAAA National Open Track and Field Championships out at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, last night.
National sprint queen Michelle Lee Ahye continued her domination of the track with gold in the 200m final yesterday at the NAAA National Senior Championships which came to an end at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo.
One selfless London Marathon runner sacrificed his own race to help a physically exhausted fellow runner across the finishing line.
MICHELLE-LEE Ahye broke the national women’s 100-metre record on her way to the title, while Emmanuel Callender won his first national 100m title at the NGC/Sagicor Open Championships at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo, yesterday.
