Andrew Stone contributes to “successful” CARIFTA Games for Cayman

Caymanian Andrew Stone put the region on notice in his CARIFTA debut, after earning two podium placements during the games in Kingston, Jamaica over the weekend.

Stone, 16, first captured gold after leaping 6.76 metres in the long jump event on Saturday (April 16) during the 2022 CARIFTA Track and Field Games.

“He has tremendous abilities,” Cayman’s athletics national head coach Kenrick Williams said of Stone.

The under 17 competitor then went on to claim yet another podium placement. This time on Sunday (April 17) in the high jump, where he cleared 2m, to win silver.

Cayman also medalled in the under 17 and under 20 4×100 metres relay races, earning bronze in both events.

The U17 team consisted of Rashawn Robinson, Jacob Ebanks, Ty Goddard and Jerrell Maize, while the U20 team featured Jaiden Reid, Davonte Howell, Alex Gordon and Jamar Ellis.

“It was a successful meet overall,” Williams added.
