24 Belize athletes participate in C. American Games

Friday, 03 March 2006

The Belize Olympic and Commonwealth Games Association announces it is sending a delegation of 24 Belizeans Athletes to the VIII Central American Games which will be hosted this year in five Central American capitals. While Belize is not hosting a discipline, only participating, Salvador is not taking part.

To care for its 24 athletes the Association is sending along 12 officials.

The biggest delegation is of basketball players. Twelve of these will head out for Panama City this weekend.

They include Keith Acosta, Ian Augustine, Darren Bovell, Ernest Broaster, Kelvin Gillett, Claude Jones, Jurett Jones, Darwin Leslie, Aubrey Lopez, Kirk Smith, Leon Williams and Stephen Williams.

Belize is also fielding a team of women body-builders.

Sharalee Greene and Kimberley Weir who both competed in body-shaping contests last year in Belize are going to Managua to take part in the women’s competition.

Dillon Jones and Roger Sutherland are to compete among the men.

This year, for the first time Belize is fielding a Triathlon team of four. The members are Rigoberto Rivas, Calvin and Linden Rojas and James Scott.

Guatemala City will host the cycling segment of the Central American Games and Belize is sending a four-man mission.

Its members are Marlon Castillo, Douglas Lamb, Ernest Meighan and Jeffrey Zelaya.

Only one athlete will represent Belize at the Athletics events which are to be staged in Managua, Nicaragua.

He is Joel Wade, who hopes to make his mark in the 220 and 440 metre races.

Was Pulu Lightburn there? Pulu is sort of an elder statesman of Belizean sports, and a good guy.
