Jamaica will have all their 100m representatives contesting the respective Under-17 and Under-20 finals on today’s first day of the 49th staging of the Carifta Games at the National Stadium in Kingston.

All the 100m finals are scheduled for later.

The Clayton twins, Tia and Tina, have the fourth and fifth quickest times heading into the Girls’ Under-20 100m final following the opening round of the qualifiers.

Tia Clayton booked her place in the final after winning her first-round heat in 11.63 seconds while World Under-10 100m champion Tina Clayton, the gold medal favourite, advanced after a second-place finish behind Guyana’s Keliza Smith in heat three.

Smith won very easily in 11.55 seconds while an easy-looking Tina Clayton clocked 11.65 seconds.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Shaniqua Bascombe has the quickest time following an 11.50 clocking in heat one.

The Jamaican pair of Deandre Daley (10.27) and Bouwahjgie Nkrumie (10.38) have the two quickest times going into the final of the Boys’ Under-20 100m after winning their semi-final heats very easily.

In the Girls’ Under-17 100m, Theianna Lee Terrelonge of Jamaica advanced to the final after winning semi-final one in 11.73 seconds while her teammate Camoy Binger qualified on time after failing to pick up one of the three automatic qualifying spots from her semi-final heat.

Binger finished fourth in 12.14 seconds, just good enough to quality.

Terrelonge’s 11.73 is the second quickest going into the final.

Adaejah Hodge of the British Virgin Islands leads all qualifiers with 11.44 seconds.

Jamaica’s Gary Card leads all qualifiers going into the Boys’ Under-17 final with 10.81 seconds. Shaquane Gordon, the other Jamaican, has the third quickest time of 10.92.
