NASSAU, Bahamas (Sporting Alert) – As expected, Jamaica finished a top of the medal table at the 2013 Carifta Games, held at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium in Nassau, Bahamas.

Starting the day with 50 medals, the defending champions collected 19 more during the last session on the final day.

At the end of the meeting, Jamaica topped the three day Games with 69 medals, which included 29 gold, 25 silver and 15 bronze. The Caribbean powerhouses had more gold medals than most of the rest of the teams total medal count.

Host Bahamas finished second with 31 medals overall – including eight golds, 10 silvers and 13 bronze. Trinidad & Tobago ended with eight golds, two silvers and 10 bronze, for 20 medals, while Barbados also tallied 20 medals. They had four golds, 14 silvers and two bronze.

Like they did on Sunday night, Jamaica dominated the relays on Monday – winning three of the four contested 4x400m, while breaking the record in the Under-20 race.

The Jamaicans were initially disqualified for a lane violation, but got reinstated after team officials protested.

Sixteen teams won gold medals at the Games, with seven of those winning two or more golds.

    Well what can I say tracks are an inherent part of Jamaica. They just have to let us keep that crown. If only we had more finacial resources to keep more of our athletes home, the USA would not be able to walk beside us for tracks. Well Done Jamaica. we give the long distance to the Kenyans while we hold on to the sprints.
