Description

First organized in Barbados in 1986, the Caribbean Union of Teachers’ (CUT) Students’ Tracks and Field Championships are the only competition of its kind in the Caribbean, providing young athletes aged 8 to 15 with their first taste of regional competition. They have been a breeding ground for success with emerging athletes who had, and still have success, on the world stage. The Olympic medalists Obadele Thompson, Veronica Campbell, and, more recently, Grenadian sprinter Kyrany James, got their first opportunity in these games, which are also a recognition that sports play a significant role in the regional integration process.
