Multitalented athlete Tyrique Vincent dipped under qualifying standards for the Carifta Games in three events over the course of the weekend’s trials, winning the boys U-17 triple jump on March 3, in addition to the U-17 110m hurdles and U-17 long jump on March 2.

Vincent was among about three dozen athletes to achieve the qualifying standards for the Carifta Games, which run from March 29 to April 1 in Grenada.

The Concorde Athletic standout cleared the Carifta standard in the Boys U-17 triple jump by nearly a metre, leaping 13.50 metres on his final attempt, well ahead of the 12.61m standard.

Reuel McEwen, Kristiano Perez and Dominic Maxwell also beat the standard, finishing second to fourth respectively.

Vincent was one of the most dominant athletes competing over the weekend, starting on Saturday, when he won the boys U-17 110m hurdles final in 14.43 seconds (wind assisted), below the Carifta standard of 14.78 seconds.

Omari Brown (Neon Wolves) finished second and also qualified after finishing in 14.48 seconds.

Vincent also cleared the long jump with a golden lunge of 6.74 metres, well ahead of the 6.34m Carifta standard.

Brown also qualified for this Carifta event, finishing runner-up in the long jump final, with 6.61m in his best and last effort.

Also on Sunday, Daeshaun Cole (Abilene Wildcats) dipped under the Carifta Games (21.55 seconds) mark in the boys under-20 200m dash semifinal, clocking a wind-aided 21.23 seconds, before challenging the final after press time.

Symphony Patrick, winner of the girls U-20 100m final and a Carifta qualifier on Saturday, also achieved the girls Under-20 200m standard for the Carifta Games.
