Spencer seals it


Share post:

Barbadians have failed to get on the podium at the Commonwealth Games, but other Caribbean countries have been among the medals.

St Lucian high jumper Levern Spencer won gold in the women’s high jump on the penultimate day of the Games on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia, yesterday.

The 33-year-old Spencer, who collected bronze at the event in 2010 and 2014, cleared the bar with a season’s best effort of 1.95 metres.

In the process, she won a fourth global gold medal, following her triumphs at the Central American and Caribbean Games in 2010 and 2014 and the Pan American Games in 2015. (HG)
