3. GibbonsAdia Gibbons and Emily Cabral were Bermuda’s dynamic duo as Bermuda clinched the Concacaf Girls’ Under-15 Championship Division Two title with a 2-1 win over Grenada at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, today.

Cabral set up Gibbons’s opener with virtually the last kick of the first half, before Nyah Hood equalised from a Melania Fullerton corner in the 48th minute.

Cabral then finished off a beautiful give-and-go with Gibbons in the 57th minute to give Bermuda the title.

Gibbons almost helped give Bermuda the lead in the fifth minute, but Katelyn Medeiros, who scored Bermuda’s only goal of the semi-final win over St Lucia on Friday, shot over the crossbar.

5. Smith

Tyrone Smith has vowed to make every jump count as he enters the final two years of his athletics career.

Smith hopes to complete the modern Olympiad cycle, finishing his career at the Tokyo Games in 2020, which would be his fourth Olympics after Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio de Janeiro 2016.

The 33-year-old long jumper made his long-awaited return to a championships podium after winning the silver medal at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia, last Wednesday.

He will be hoping to build on that performance when he competes at the at the North American, Central American and Caribbean Championships, at the Varsity Stadium, Toronto, from Friday until Sunday.

“I recognise now that every competition is precious and you can’t take anything for granted, especially as you logically approach the end of your career,” Smith said.
