The Flow CARIFTA Games Are Coming, Here's What You Need To Know!
Will you be reppin TCI?
The Bahamas will host the CARIFTA Games for the eighth (8th) time on March 30th to April 2nd 2018. The Games will bring together some 500 athletes and 150 team officials from 26 countries, all among the best track and field athletes in the Caribbean.
First held back in 1972, Austin Sealy, then president of the Amateur Athletic Association of Barbados, inaugurated the CARIFTA Games to mark the transition from the Caribbean Free Trade Association (CARIFTA) to the Caribbean Community (CARICOM).
CARIFTA was meant to enhance relations between the English-speaking countries of the Caribbean after the dissolution of the West Indies Federation, but the CARIFTA Games took that idea a step further, including the French and Dutch Antilles in an annual junior track and field championship competition.
It is held for three days during the Easter period and consists of 65 track and field events including sprint races, hurdles, middle distance track events, jumping, throwing events, and relays in line with the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) guidelines for junior athletes.
Available exclusively on FLOW TV, here's some of the local athletes and to cheer on who will be reppin TCI!
