Demetrie Meyers retains 3,000-meter race title at CARIFTA Games in Grenada; Brooklyn Lyttle claims bronze in girls’ under-17 long jump

Posted: Sunday, March 31, 2024. 9:51 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Now 16-year-old Demetrie Meyers repeated his 2023 gold-medal winning 3,000-meter race performance at the CARIFTA Games in St George’s, Grenada, earlier today.

He defeated the field at the Kirani James Athletic Stadium in nine minutes, 5.86 seconds, shaving time off his personal best but still short of the meet record.

On Saturday, Meyers missed out on defending his 1,500-meter title, placing fifth.

In other results, 16-year-old Brooklyn Lyttle collected Belize’s only other medal of the Games with a third-place finish in the girls’ under-17 long jump, traveling 18 feet and nine and a half inches but falling short to the Bahamas’ J’kaiyah Rolle and Shashana Johnson of Jamaica.

Demetrie’s older brother Daniel placed 13th in a field of 14 in the boys’ under-20 1,500 meters and 15-year-old Jaaden Williams participated in the youth categories for the long and triple jump respectively. Williams scored 11.96 meters (39 feet, 2.75 inches) in the triple jump and 5.37 meters (17 feet, 7.5 inches) in the long jump but missed the medal stand.

Congratulations to all participants.
