Young trailblazers

Some of the best young athletic talent which the island has to offer was on show yesterday in the Powerade-sponsored Barbados Secondary Schools Athletics Championships at the National Stadium.

Once again the ladies of Springer Memorial are stamping their authority on proceedings and the lads of Christ Church Foundation are putting in a serious bid to erase 25 years of dedicated but frustrated efforts.

There were some excellent displays from the likes of Aria Small, Kai Alleyne and Dequan Lovell who set tongues wagging in the shot put.

Barbados TODAY brings a pictorial review of some of the action on the track and field.
