New Records In Two Events During 2019

Bernard Linley Track & Field Retrospect by Bernard Linley :: 12.11.2019

The two new national records of 2019 came in the men`s long jump and shot put.

In the long jump Andwuelle Wright jumped 8.25m on 15 July when taking the NACAC under 23 title in Queretaro, Mexico, adding 2 cm to the old record he had set in 2018.

Actually, in that competition Wright did 8.25m twice: in the third round (with 0.7 wind) and in the sixth round (with 1.3 wind).

The shot put record was broken by Akeem Stewart when he threw 20.43m on 16 March while winning a competition at Coral Gables, Florida. The previous mark of 19.96m had been established by Stewart himself in 2016.

In summary both new records were set abroad by athletes who held the old records.

Although no women`s record was broken, the lone Junior under 20 record this year was achieved at 400m by a female athlete, Rae Anne Serville born in 2002. She did this when taking the junior title in 52.89, just 0.02 seconds faster than the 52.91 mark set by Adia McKinnon in 2000, before Serville was born.

This young sprinter, who was also senior 400m champion in 2018 and 2019, is now the best candidate to challenge the 51.83 national record held by Janeil Bellile since 2014.
