By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize Athletics Association on Thursday announced that Double Gold Carifta Medalist Demetrie Meyers and Olympian Brandon Jones will be competing in its National Championships this weekend, April 15-16, at the Marion Jones Sporting Complex in Belize City.

Meyers arrived in Belize in Thursday after competing in the 50th Carifta Games in Nassau, Bahamas, where he won gold in the 1500m and 3000m.

Jones missed the Carifta Games though he had been selected by the BAA.

“We at the BAA would like all to come out and support our rising stars,” the BAA said in a press release.

The BAA also said world champion coach Andre Cason will be present at the National Championships scouting for the BAA Junior and Senior teams. Cason will also be identifying possible talent to be considered for scholarships.

“We ask that all registration be submitted on Friday, April 14th, by 10 pm,” the BAA said.

“For the first time in Belize this National championship will feature a Professional Fully Automatic Timer. All official results will be posted online for the world to see!”

The National Championships start at 9:00 am on Saturday.
