The Athletic Association of Guyana (AAG) will be hosting its third consecutive event for the 2020 season and the second ‘Development Meet’ tomorrow at 10:30hrs at the McKenzie Sports Club (MSC) ground in Linden.
Tomorrow’s meet comes on the heels of the ‘Cross Country’ fixture which was staged on the first Sunday of 2020 at the National Park and last week’s first Development meet that ran off at the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) ground.
As was the case last week, athletes will be contesting the 60m, 150m, 300m, 600m and 2000m races in addition to the jumps, throws and field events.
Last week, the AAG saw over 150 athletes registering for the first development meet as to showcase their talents.
Looking to qualify for the Olympics in Tokyo later this year, Davin Fraser and Akeem Stewart renewed their rivalry in the 60m and 150m male open races. Much to the delight of the fans who thought they wouldn’t have seen the speedsters compete against each other.
Fraser drew first blood, exploding out the blocks to get the better of Stewart in the 60m. However, Stewart turned the tables on his arch rival to win the 150m by 100th of a second.
Brianna Charles, a finalist in the Girls U-17 100m final at CARIFTA Games last year, got her season off to a perfect start, winning the 300m female race. Charles who competes in the marquee 100m, 200m and 400m events, won the 300m in emphatic fashion.
Elsewhere on the field, CARIFTA Games triple jump bronze medalist, Princess Brown, as expected dominated in her event as she continues to fine tune her form for her return to the regional games this Easter weekend.
