Calabar’s Christopher Taylor teased the crowd and Class One quarter-milers Akeem Bloomfield, Twayne Crooks (Kingston College), Nathon Allen and Martin Manley (St Jago) confirmed what we already knew – Saturday’s final is going to be something special.

You could hear a pin drop inside the National Stadium at times yesterday as a few athletics loyalists sat under overcast skies to witness the first blocks being laid on the opening day of the ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Athletics Championships.

Things only truly got under way today, with four finals set to be contested, as the mad rush for points gets into high gear.

The boys’ Class One 400m is one of the most eagerly anticipated events at this year’s championships, with the form of Bloomfield, who recently ran 45.41, and Crooks, as well as St Jago duo Manley and Allen, setting up a mouth-watering finale.

All four won their heats and booked their places in Friday’s semi-finals yesterday – Bloomfield closing down with more than 100m to go to post 48.11, Crooks bouncing comfortably to 47.22, Allen easy in 48.22, and Manley comfortably registering 48.23.
