Ten Belizean athletes to compete in Mexico’s National Athletics Championship in Querétaro

Posted: Tuesday, June 8, 2021. 3:40 pm CST.

By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Ten Belizean should be leaving on Wednesday to compete as invited guests in Mexico’s National Athletics Championship in Querétaro.

“We’re sending a team to the Mexico Senior National Championships in Querétaro, Mexico from the 11th to the 13th,” said Belize Athletics Association (BAA) president Deon Sutherland.

Initially, the BAA was to send eleven athletes, but the Central American Cross Country Championship is being held this coming weekend in Guatemala, so the BAA opted to send national 1500m and 5000m champ Brandon Adolphus to that competition.

Sutherland said that since Mexico’s National Championship is for Mexican citizens only, the Belizean athletes will participate as invited guests. Their times will be considered for the international events coming up, including the Tokyo Olympics.

“We’re asking for participation because we want our athletes to get timing and more events under their belt in order to qualify for ranking points for the Olympics and the Pan American Games 2023,” said Sutherland.

The team will be led by BAA Executive member and coach Shelmadine Carr.

The athletes the BAA is sending to Querétaro are:

Samantha Dirks – 200m, 400m, 4x100m relay

National 100m champ Hilary Gladden – 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay

Ashontie Carr – 400m, 800m, 4x100m relay

Ashanti Carr – long jump, triple jump, 4x100m relay

National 100m champ Shaun Gill- 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay

National 200m champ Mark Anderson -100m, 200m, 4x100m relay

National 200m subchamp & 3rd place in 100m Rahim Monsanto – 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay

Jihad Ahmaad – 100m, 200m, 4x100m relay

Linden Wade – 400m and 800m

National 400m champ Gary Neal – 200m and 400m
