Feb 17, 2012 Sports Comments Off on AAG first Developmental Meet set for Sunday
After weeks of inclement weather in Georgetown which forced the Athletics Association of Guyana (AAG) to alter their calendar of events, the first Development Meet is now slated for Sunday from 11:00hrs at Police Sports Club Ground, Eve Leary.
The initial Developmental Meet was timetabled for the first Sunday in February with the National Cross Country (NCC), the last Sunday in January, however bad weather resulted in the Cross Country being run off on Sunday last.
With the pre-competition training after the offseason sessions, Guyana’s leading junior and senior athletes will have the opportunity to exhibit what they have been training to do and that is to compete.
The junior athletes will be taking full advantage of this Meet to gauge their preparations for the upcoming Junior CARIFTA Trials to be held on March 4.
Junior athletes on show will come from the Running Brave Athletic Club, Mercury Fast Laners, Guyana Defence Force, Rualites Athletic Club, Police Progressive Youth Club and the Upper Demerara Club.
Sunday’s Meet will also present the opportunity for new talent to come to the fore in the sprints and quarter-miles in the senior category since Guyana’s Defense Force’ Rupert Perry and Quinse Clarke as well as the Guyana’s Police Force’ Winston George will not be participating. The trio is currently training in Jamaica.
All standard events will be run off at the Meet with the exception of 3000m, 5000m, long jump, triple jump, high jump, discus and javelin. All officials are asked to be present at the venue for 10:00hrs.
Age categories for athletes competing on Sunday: Youths (13 – 17), Juniors (18 – 20) Open (20 and over). Entry fee per event is $200.00.
