George, clear prospect for Police future in Athletics
In a meet organised to spot future talent for the Guyana Police Force Track and Field Team, Winston George ensured that he impressed the Top Brass of the institution yesterday at the Police Sports Club Ground, Eve Leary.
George turned in 21.3 seconds to win the 200m Men ahead of Keith Roberts, who had 22.1 seconds and Derwin Eastman (22.3) to initiate an excellent performance at the Guyana Police Force Mini Meet at the renowned sports venue.
George also won the 400m and placed third in the 100m behind Guyana Defence Force, Rupert Perry and Quincy Clarke. Perry won in 10.4 seconds while Clarke was second in 10.6 seconds. George finished third in 11.0 seconds in the 100m race.
In the other available results up to press time, Cindy Fraser ran 27.9 seconds to win the 200m ahead of Ava Harry (30.1) and St. Hill (30.1). In addition to the Police events, there were some invitational events that sparked heated debates.
For instance, while no times were available, Fortune got away from Neisa Allen and junior sprint sensation, Tiffany Carto in the 100m. Fortune also won the 400m ahead of Shanna Thornhill and Allen later last evening.
Seasoned senior middle distance runners, Cleveland Forde, Dennis Horatio and Cleveland Thomas got the day off to an entertaining start in the male 800m when they finished in that order setting the crowd alight at the Sports Club. Julio Sinclair was impressive in winning the Discus event.
The meet was organised to enhance the Police team ahead of the Inter-Services Athletics Championships (ISAC) later this year. ISAC will be held at the Guyana Defence Force Ground and the defending champs, Police, are leaving no stones unturned.
