bow Cup Triathlon Gaetan Geteaud
of France is hoping to be here for next
Sunday s (November 1) Flow Energy
Sunday adult duathlon and one savan-
nah race in the capital city of Port-
Arranger Jason Gooding told the T&T
Guardian yesterday that although it
could be a hefty cost to have the french-
man here for the race it could be worth-
while since the much fancied event has
been attracting some of the country s
top middle distant runners.
Some of the runners who have
already registered for the race are
Guyana s Kelvin Johnson, who has basi-
cally dominated local middle and long
distance in T&T in recent times and
his countryman Lionel Dandrade. For-
mer Carifta 800 metres medallist
Garvin Nero will also be among a com-
petitive field along with top duathlete
in neighbouring Barbados, Oein Josiah
and Avinash Ananalay of T&T.
The day s activities will begin with
a race for juniors (10-12 and 13-15) from
7.30 am. They will face a 1 km run/3.7

Top T&T men s beach volleyball
pair Fabien Whitfield and Daneil
Williams will lead three local pairs,
into battle when the sixth edition
of the Norceca Beach Volleyball Cir-
cuit serves off at Pigeon Point, St
Lucia from today until Sunday.
In addition to Whitfield and
Williams, who are coming off a 12
straight wins in the T&T Volleyball
Federation national team selection
qualifiers for the Norceca Continental
Olympic Qualifiers on Monday night,
T&T will be represented by the top
two women s teams in Ayana Dyette
and Malika Davidson, as well as Elki
Phillip and Shenelle Gordon.
Last year, no tournament was held
in St Lucia, however, two years ago,
the Toco-born pair of Whitfield and
Williams, placed eighth.
Following their victory in the qual-
ifiers, Whitfield and Williams played
unbeaten at the National Beach Vol-
leyball Developmental Centre, against
three other pairs on Monday night.
Back on September 13, in Florida
Whitfield and Williams spiked a sec-
ond ever bronze medal on the Norce-
ca Beach Volleyball Tour when they
came from a set down to beat Cana-
da-B duo Dan Dearing and Garrett
May 18-21, 21-19, 15-12 to add to a
similar finish on home soil at Mission
Beach, Toco, three years ago.
The top three finish for the T&T
men, who were also fifth in the
Fourth-leg at the end of August in
Varadero, Cuba, capped off a run of
nine tournaments, two on the FIVB
World Tour, Pan Am Games in
Ontario, Canada, two in California
Tournaments and four legs of the
Norceca 2015 Circuit.
On the tour, the T&T men also
won the CBVA s Manhattan Beach
Open after reaching the last eight at
the Pan American Games in July and
the California Cup gold medal match.
So far this season,Williams and
Whitfield have competed at all five
stops of the Norceca 2015 Tour begin-
ning with a ninth placed in Cayman
Islands in April; ninth at the second
stop in Punta Cana, Dominican
Republic in June and 14th in North
Bay, Canada in August.
The Toco boys along with Josiah
Eccles and Tevin Joseph were T&T
representatives during the first round
of the Norceca Olympic Beach Qual-
ifiers held in T&T earlier this year,
and have already secured one of the
two team spots for the second round
of the Olympic qualifiers which will
also take place later this year.
In the women s competition,
Dyette and Davidson will be com-
peting in their fifth event after missing
the first stop in Cayman Islands while
Phillip and Gordon will be taking
their season bow.
The pair of Apphia Glasgow and
La Teisha Joseph were eighth at the
first stop in Cayman Islands after
which Dyette and Davidson, first year
partners ended 13th in Punta Cana;
15th in North Bay; ninth in Cuba, and
13th in Florida.
However, the duo is unbeaten at
home in their last seven National
qualifying events, including the last
two over the past ten days at Chagua-
nas and enters today s tournament
on a high.
Dyette and Davidson are also in
prime position to earn half of the
national women s places for the sec-
ond round of their Olympic Qualifiers
to be held in Jamaica later this year.
Following the conclusion of this
weekend s Norceca Tournament, the
tour shifts to Guatemala City
(November 3-9) before concluding
in T&T (November 11-16).
