Silver Belle!


Share post:

Hopes were high in track and field circles last week that at least one, if not both of Barbados’ two representatives at the Eighth IAAF World Youth Championships in Donetsk, Ukraine, would bring home a medal.
Last Thursday, everyone anxiously awaited the outcome of Mario Burke’s performance in the 100 metres. He finished fifth in the final, plagued by a niggling hamstring injury, so all of the attention shifted to Tia-Adana Belle.
And on the biggest stage she has seen so far, the 17-year-old Ellerton, St George resident kept raising the bar with successive performances before winning silver in the 400 metre hurdles yesterday.
