Shane off track


Share post:

BARBADOS will hunt for gold at this year’s Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games without the help of star hurdler Shane Brathwaite.

The saviour for Barbados at this year’s Commonwealth Games in Scotland, with a bronze medal in the men’s 110 metres hurdles, Brathwaite told MIDWEEK SPORT he will miss the CAC Games slated for Veracruz, Mexico, from November 14-30.

For him, the timing of CAC falls in his off-season and means that he will not be at his peak.

“I will not be in Mexico because my off-season training starts at the end of October, so in terms of preparation I won’t be ready. I just wouldn’t have enough time to run the kind of times that I would be happy to run and be competitive,” said Brathwaite, now back home spending time with his family in Spooners Hill, St Michael.
