Record medal haul for Trinidad

PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil, CMC-Trinidad and Tobago has captured its highest medal count ever in the World Masters Outdoor Track and Field Championships which climaxed in Brazil on Sunday.

T and T completed the event with an all-time high medal tally of 18, improving on the seven medals earned at the 2011 World Masters meet in California, USA.

The Trinidadians claimed three relay medals on the final day of action and ended the Championships with four gold medals, seven silver and seven bronze.

Leading the way was double individual bronze medallist Martin Prime, who guided the men’s 50-54 4×100 metres team to silver in 46.10 seconds.

The T&T combination of Prime, Lester Herbert, Raymond Smith and Dave Massiah finished behind Great Britain (45.67). The same quartet went on to bag bronze in the 4x400m. Prime left Brazil with five medals, the most captured by any T&T athlete at the global biennial meet.
