Guyana continues to make its mark at the 51st CARIFTA Games in St. George’s, with outstanding performances from its athletes earning gold medals on the first day of competition.

In addition to Hinckson’s victory, Tianna Springer and Malachi Austin showcased their prowess on the track, both claiming gold in their respective U20 400m races. Malachi Austin achieved a personal best time of 46.35 seconds, securing his gold medal and also earning a spot at the World U20 Championship.

Tianna Springer’s performance was equally impressive, clocking 52.31 seconds in the Girls U20 400m finals. Not only did she clinch the gold medal, but she also established a world-leading time for athletes under 18 years old. This remarkable feat adds another accolade to Springer’s collection, following her previous gold medal win in the U17 category last year.

Prior to today’s race, only Skylar Franklin of the USA had posted a faster time than Springer, making her achievement all the more noteworthy. Moreover, Springer’s time comfortably met the Qualifying standard for the World U20 Championship, scheduled for August 27 – 31 in Lima, Peru.
