Detrimental sanction imposed on Cayman’s athletic association

Cayman Islands national track and fielders have been banned from participating in sanctioned competitions. A letter released last week by Cayman Islands Athletics Association (CIAA) President Lance Barnes stated;

Copy of the letter released.

On Friday July 25th, the North American Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC) imposed a sanction on the Cayman Islands Athletic Association.

The sanctioned leveled against the association is in respect to refunds to be made by the CARIFTA 2019 LOC (local organizing committee) for added charges made to member federations that contravened NACAC standing policy.

The sanction prevents any athlete from the Cayman Islands from participating in any NACAC and World Athletics athletic event including the Olympic Games. We are aware of the severity of the sanction imposed, and do not take it lightly. We remain committed in keeping you informed on this and any other association matters.

Local track officials told Cay 03 Sports, the CIAA will have a meeting on Monday (27 July) to discuss decisions on the imposed sanction against the Cayman Islands.
