A & B GUNNING FOR GLORY IN RIO

Antigua & Barbuda kicked off at the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil on August 7th, with Noah Mascoll-Gomes swimming in Heat 1 of the 200m free style event. With a good start off the block, and clocking his personal best time of 1:53.63, which put him in 5th position, it was not enough to qualify for the semifinals but we are all proud of his stellar performance.

The other hopefuls gunning for glory are Samantha Roberts, who will be competing in the 50m Free Style heats on August 12th at 12pm, followed by senior sprinters, Daniel Bailey and Cejhae Greene on August 13th, at 8:30am in the preliminaries of the men's 100m event, at the João Havelange Stadium.

Sprinting sensation, Miguel Francis will compete in Round 1 of the men's 200m event on August 16th at 10:50am and National High Jumper, Priscilla Frederick on August 18th 9am. Proving they are capable of competing against the best in the world, the 4 x 100m relay team featuring Daniel Bailey, Miguel Francis, Cejhae Greene, Chavaughn Walsh, Jared Jarvis and Tahir Walsh, will be vying for a spot on August 18th at 10:40am.

Since first competing at the Olympics in 1976, the country has never won a medal and the nation will be looking on to see if the contenders will claim the country’s first Olympic medal. With the tiny nation rallying behind the athletes and their coaches, we wish them good luck and victories in their respective events.
