By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Athletes from the entire country will compete at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex in Belize City on Saturday and Sunday, May 29-30, in the National Track and Field Championships

“From the districts we’re looking at least from 50 to 75. From Belize City we hope that we can get another 75 to a 100,” said Belize Athletics Association (BAA) president Deon Sutherland.

The BAA hosts the athletes that come from the district providing them with hotel accommodations and food said Sutherland.

“We have some clubs and they are bringing their teams,” Sutherland said.

“Everything is set for the weekend, so, I’m asking athletes to pre-register so that we could have things set up as quickly as possible,” Sutherland added.

“We wanted the four athletes that are on the Olympic Solidarity scholarship. Three of them are here, only Samantha Dirks [is not] but she already has a registered meet for that weekend that neither she or her coach can change,” Sutherland said. The other three, Shaun Gill, Mark Anderson, and Hillary Gladden, will compete this weekend. 

In a press release, the BAA said all athletes 16 years and older can participate in the events.

Registration forms are available from BAA via email ([email protected]), from their Facebook page (Belize Athletics Association) or at the Marion Jones Sports Complex. Registration is $10.00 per athlete.

The track events will include: 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 1500m, 4x100m, 4x400m, 3000m, 5000m.

The field competitions will include: long jump, triple jump, high jump, javelin, shot put, and discus.
