World Athletics Day qualifier for CUT

| 28/05/2014

(CNS): Alongside 122 other IAAF members the Cayman Islands Athletic Association will be taking part in the 2014 edition of the IAAF World Athletics Day on Saturday. Now in its 19th year, the IAAF World Athletics Day is the sport’s annual worldwide festival of youth and one of the busiest programmes of competitions in the athletics calendar. The Meet will take place at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex at 4:00pm and CIAA has confirmed that it will be used as a qualifier for the CUT Age Group Championships which will take place in Trinidad and Tobago on July 25 & 26.

The World Athletics Day offers the opportunity to promote the sport through youth participation in clubs and schools.

The festival has always been held on a designated weekend each year and whilst Saturday, May 10 & Sunday, May 11, 2014 is the preferred weekend for the IAAF’s Member Federations to celebrate the IAAF World Athletics Day, the option of holding their celebration at any time during the month of May has been allowed in an effort to aid the greatest possible number of participating Federations.
