Jamaica Continues Track and Field Dominance With 38th Consecutive Carifta Games Title

Jamaica’s track and field brilliance was once again on display as the country secured its 38th consecutive Carifta Games title in an outstanding display of athletic dominance.

The Caribbean nation’s young ambassadors showcased remarkable talent at the Kirani James Athletics Stadium in St. Georges, Grenada.

Amidst fierce competition, Jamaica clinched a staggering total of 84 medals, surpassing last year’s tally by six.

The final day saw an impressive surge, with Jamaican athletes adding 33 medals to their collection, including 19 gold, eight silver, and six bronze.


The closing day featured unforgettable moments, with Jamaica sweeping the 4x400m relays and seizing gold medals in the sprint hurdles.

However, the championships encountered a controversial conclusion as several teams were permitted to rerun the Under-20 Boys’ 4x400m relays due to confusion over a false start.

Notably, Jamaican athlete Jaeda Robinson etched her name in history by breaking the championship record in the Girls’ Under-17 triple jump. 

In the highly anticipated 200m finals, Jamaican athletes secured victories in three out of four races.

Gary Card delivered a stellar performance in the Boys’ Under-20 category, while Shanoya Douglas and Natrece East displayed exemplary prowess in their respective events.

Hurdler Shaquan Gordon redeemed himself after facing disqualification in the previous year’s competition. Gordon’s victory, alongside Habiba Harris’s impressive win, highlighted Jamaica’s resilience and tenacity on the international stage.

Jamaica’s triumph in the Carifta Games reaffirms its status as a powerhouse in track and field, inspiring future generations of athletes and cementing its legacy in sporting history.
