Maurice Wilson, head coach of the Sprintec Track Club, has come out against the proposed method for selecting Jamaica’s female sprint hurdlers for the team to compete at the IAAF World Championships in September.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Machel Cedenio and Kyle Greaux had third-place finishes in the 400m and 200m, respectively at the XXXIII Meeting Citta' Di Padova in Italy on Tuesday.

Jamaica’s Megan Tapper set a new meet record and a season-best to win the 100m hurdles at the XXXIII Meeting Citta' Di Padova at the Stadio D. Colbachini in Italy where her compatriot Shelly-Ann Fraser Pryce won the 100m in 11.00 on Tuesday.

WhosWhoLegal has selected Trinidadian/Canadian attorney, Dr. Emir Crowne, as one of the best sports lawyers in the world. He is the first Caribbean sports lawyer to be recognised in this manner.

Bahamian Olympic champion Shaunae Miller-Uibo has admitted she is considering the 200m, 400m sprint double at the upcoming IAAF World Championships in Doha but only if the organisers amend the schedule.

The 25-year-old star has displayed splendid form over both distances for the past several months. Her most recent outing, a dominant half-lap sprint at the Herculis EBS in Monaco last Friday, saw Miller-Uibo pull clear of a quality field, which included 2016 Olympic 100-200m champion Elaine Thompson and Dafne Schippers, the 2017 world 200m champion and 2016 Olympic silver medalist. The athlete is even more of a dominant force in the one-lap event but knows first hand the demands of attempting the sprint double. At the 2017 World Championships, an obviously overworked Miller-Uibo settled for the bronze medal in the 200 metres race and finished fourth in the 400 metres event.

Impressed with her performance at the weekend, however, the athlete admitted that attempting the double was once again a possibility. "I feel pretty good, like I did a good job out there," Miller-Uibo said. "I'm happy with how the race went. The quicker I get at 200m, the quicker I'd be at 400 and I'm really happy with where I'm at right now.” “My coach said he was very happy with how I ran the turn. If they can change the timetable for the Olympics, I'd be more than happy to double."

Shaunae Miller-Uibo continued her unbeaten streak this season and Steven Gardiner won a 400m surrounded by controversy at the Diamond League meeting in Monaco on Friday.

Shanieka Ricketts produced a 14.67m performance for third on the first day of the Diamond League meeting in Monaco on Thursday.

Trinidad and Tobago sprinter Michelle Lee Ahye is claiming that she is “saddened” by the circumstances under which she and her wife Chelsea have parted ways but insists that she was not charged in relation to allegations that she abused the woman she married in May 2018.

Michelle-Lee Ahye, the 2018 Commonwealth Games 100m champion is facing domestic abuse charges in Texas, the Trinidad Guardian is reporting.

Jamaican Olympian Twilet Malcolm died on Wednesday morning in Houston, Texas, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. She was 50 years old.

Akeem Bloomfield, Nikita Tracey and Tynia Gaither were among the winners at the Spitzen Leichtathletik meeting in Lucerne on Tuesday when former world-record holder Asafa Powell ran his fastest time in two years but did not win.

Shaunae Miller-Uibo, Steven Gardiner and Danniel Thomas-Dodd were Caribbean winners in Hungary on Tuesday at the Gyulai Istvan Memorial where they were also podium places for Fedrick Dacres, Janieve Russell and Stephenie-Ann McPherson.
