SUNDAY, APRIL 8: Chelsea James set a new under-17 girls shot put record at the CARIFTA Games today.
The 14-year-old schoolgirl, of Trinidad and Tobago, threw a personal best of 14.02 metres to claim gold at the games.
She said: "That's the furthest I've ever thrown. It was a very nice feeling. It was a very tough competition, but I had to make the best of it."
Bermudians Hadiyah Barnett and Tiara DeRosa, who also competed, did not figure among the medals.
Ms James, in third year at high school, praised the commitment of Bermudian athletes and said the standards of competition were high across the board.
And she added she now has her sights set on Commonwealth and Olympic competition.
Ms James said: "I would love to go to other games and experience the competition out there. I'd love to be at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014."
The record was set using a new weight of put, which renders previous records redundant.
