PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago – World Relay medallists Rondell Sorillo (La Brea Athletics) and Reyare Thomas (Neon Trackers) warmed up for next weekend’s NGC/Sagicor Open Championships by taking the 100m titles at the 3rd President’s Classic at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port of Spain on Saturday (14 June).  

Sorillo, who ran the third leg on T&T’s silver medal-winning men’s 4x100m at the inaugural IAAF World Relays Championships in Bahamas last month, took the men’s 100m title in 10.47. 

In the women’s 100m, Thomas won in 11.48 ahead of her World relay team mate, Kamaria Durant (Simplex) 11.49 while Carifta girls under 20 100m silver medallist Aaliyah Telesford (Pt. Fortin New Jets) was third (11.61). 

World Championships 400m hurdles bronze medallist Josanne Lucas (Tobago Falcons) had her first race at home in close to two years. She won the women’s 100m hurdles in 13.73. The national 400m hurdles record holder was back in competition after injury ruined her participation at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Lucas’ time was 0.44 seconds off her season’s best of 13.29. The 30 year old created history at the 2009 World Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Berlin, Germany, when she became the first local woman to win a medal at the global senior meet. Then she won bronze in the one lap hurdles final in a national record time of 53.20.
