Records tumble at Gibson Relays

Posted by Dresonic on February 25, 2007


Twelve records were accounted for at the 30th renewal of the Gibson Relays at the National Stadium on Saturday. The meet, which was fairly attended, had patrons on the edge at times, especially when the fastest man went down on the track and anchored his MVP sprint relay team to victory in a new time of 39.18 seconds, while the female team was in spanking form clocking 43.60 for their sprint relay.

Kingston College accounted for three records – class one 400m relay and class three in new times of 40.38 and 44.04 respectively, and the class three boys erased the 4×200 record in the heats clocking 1 minute 31.55 and returned to capture the final in 1 minute 33.76.

St Jago High boys had three victories with one in record time – class two 4x100m relay in 41.66. They also won the class four in 47.14 and the class two 4×200 in 1 minute 28.93. Holmwood girls accounted for two – in the 1600m relay in 3 minutes 35.68 and the 4×800 in 8 minutes 48.96.

Their boys took the equivalents in 3 minutes 13.48 and 7 minutes 45.06 respectively. Manchester High class three girls accounted for the only school girl sprint relay record in 46.00, and they also won class 4 in 49.10.

Kingston College won the class four 4×200 in 1 minute 37.90, class three in 1 minute 33.76, and St Jago class two in 1 minute 28.93 and Camperdown claiming class 1 in one minute 24.93.

Other records to go are 110-metre hurdle to Markino Buckley (MVP) in 14.51; the 400m to Shericka Williams in 52.17; the boys’ 4x100m to Hydel Prep in 50.97 and the 4x60m to St Catherine Primary in 51.12, and the 4x60m shuttle relay to Our Lady of the Angels in 34.6.

Sherone Simpson (11.22) of the MVP Track Club and Carl Barrett (10.32) of the GC Foster College won the women’s and men’s 100m open respectively.
