Jamaica Badminton Association President Nicole Case was confident that Jamaica's team to the CAC Games in Colombia would win medals. 

It won one - a gold one - on Thursday on the men's doubles.

Gareth Henry and his partner Samuel Ricketts defeated Oselni Gurrero and Leodannis Martinez of Cuba 21-12, 11-21, 21-19 to win the men's doubles competition.

Henry and Ricketts was the only team from the English-speaking Caribbean to feature in the finals of the men's competition dominated by Cuban teams.

However, they managed to get by a Guatemalan pair of Rodolfo Ramirez and Lesvin Marroquin 21-17, 21-18 before facing the Cubans in the final.

The gold is the 13th won by the Jamaican team at the Games.
