Central Arizona College freshman, Ruebin Walters captured the men’s 60 metres hurdles title at the Glendale Community College Indoor Invite, in Arizona, USA, on Saturday. The Trinidad and Tobago athlete got to the line in 7.90 seconds. Liberia’s Wellington Zaza produced a 7.95 run for second spot.
Another T&T/Central Arizona athlete, Hezekiel Romeo threw the iron ball a personal best 17.70 metres to seize silver in the men’s shot put. British Virgin Islands thrower, Eldred Henry won with a 20.00m effort—a new national record.

At the Kent State Tune-Up, in Ohio, Kevin Roberts struck gold in the men’s long jump. The Tiffin University freshman’s winning leap was 7.30m.
Roberts opened the competition with a 6.98m jump, and then fouled in the second round. He bounced back with a 7.08m third round leap, and jumped 7.05m in round four. But it was in the fifth round that Roberts produced his best, disturbing the sand at 7.30m to take the lead. He opted to not jump in the sixth and final round.
Roberts also competed in the triple jump, finishing sixth with a 14.11m effort.
And in New Jersey, University of Delaware junior, Chelsi Campbell got home in 26.08 seconds for ninth spot overall in the Princeton Invite women’s 200m.
