Richards, Lendore golden in Boston, Borel also wins in Chile

T&T sprinters Jereem Richards and Deon Lendore both grabbed gold on Saturday night at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston.

Running in the Jesse Loubier Men's 300m, Richards topped the four-man field, including his countryman Renny Quow, in a time of 32.10 seconds. Quow did not finish the race.

Meanwhile, in the Men's 400m, Lendore opened his season with a fine run of 46.25 seconds to take the gold. Running in the same race, Machel Cedenio placed third with a time of 47.86 seconds.

Also running at the meet was Keston Bledman in the Men's 60m. He finished at the bottom of the pack in a time of 6.76 seconds.

Earlier on Saturday, T&T shot putter Cleopatra Borel won her third gold medal in Chile, competing for the third time in a week. Borel threw 18.20m.

Speaking to Guardian Media Sports after, she said, "The goal for this tour was really to hit 18.20m and achieve the world standard. We've done so and I'm really happy about that as well, so I'm just excited to see how things are going to continue to progress for this season."

At the Tyson Invitational, Sparkle McKnight was part of a Team Johnson Elite 'A' team competing in the Women's 4x400m Relay, but they didn't finish the race. Dominique Blake and McKnight got the race off to a decent start but on the third leg, Daina Harper couldn't follow through.

McKnight also ran the Women's 400m on Friday night where she placed third in Section 3, finishing 13th fastest overall.

Running at the Montreal Grand Prix, Mikel Thomas failed to finish in the Men's 60m International final after qualifying in third.
