The National Association of Athletics Administrations of Trinidad and Tobago is hosting its Sunshine Development Meet today at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo. The meet starts at 5:30 p.m. and will feature 37 events for UYouth (Under 18), Junior (Under 20) and Open athletes.
The meet will allow many of the country's top athletes to continue preparing for the upcoming month of Championships in June. The Youth and Junior competitors are fine-tuning their training for the National Junior Championships (June 10-11) while senior athletes will be action at the Open Championships (June 23-25). The NAAA took the decision to host the meet after the cancellation of the Relays and Field Events Development Meet and the Hurdles and Events Festival which were carded for May 20 and May 28, respectively. In addition, the non-staging of the annual Hampton Games have left many local athletes short of competition, as the Hampton Games usually attracts teams from Barbados, Guyana, Grenada and the USA.
