TEAM TTO ended their North America, Central America and Caribbean (NACAC) Championship with another silver, this time courtesy of the men's 4x 100 relay team last evening in the Bahamas.

The quartet comprising Jerod Elcock, Eric Harrison Jr, Asa Guevara and Kyle Greaux edged out Jamaica for the silver although both squads were timed in 38.94 seconds. The USA team of Lawrence Johnson, Brandon Carnes, Isaiah Young, and Kyree King powered to victory in 38.29 seconds.

TTO's second silver followed on from Keshorn Walcott's silver in the men's javelin on Saturday night.

Team TTO did not fare as well in other events their athletes competed in.

In the women's 200-metre dash, Team TTO sprinters failed to secure a podium place with (Mauricia) Prieto finishing fourth in 23.49 seconds while T&T's second entrant (Reyare) Thomas failed to finish.

That race was won by USA's Brittany Brown in 22.35 seconds with the Bahamas' Tynia Gaitner bagging the silver in 22.41 seconds, while another USA sprinter A'Keyla Mitchell, secured bronze in 22.53 seconds.
