Long-jumper and Cayman flag-bearer Louis Gordon was first up in the track-and-field events. Gordon jumped 7.43 metres and finished ninth overall on August 2, at the Alexander Stadium.
“I feel like I could’ve done better,” Gordon said. “But it just [didn’t] come together in time.”
Teammate Rasheem Brown then hit the track for the 110m hurdles, where he finished fifth in his heat, clocking 13.76 seconds.
Shalysa Wray closed the show for Cayman athletics in the 400m dash in 53.92 seconds. She placed sixth in her heat.
Three-time Olympian sprinter Kemar Hyman was also scheduled to compete but was forced to pull out of his 100m race after he tested positive for COVID-19.
