Jamaican traithlete Llori Sharpe eyes ranking rise at Barbadian event

By April 17, 2019

Triathlete Llori Sharpe leaves Jamaica on Friday, April 19, for the CAMTRI Elite Sprint Triathlon Championships on Sunday, April 21 in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Sharpe is ranked 23rd of the 51 female triathletes in the Continent of the Americas and plans to use Sunday’s championships to climb further up the rankings.

“This is another elite race that I am definitely looking forward to because not only am I racing against some of the top triathletes from around the world, I also have an opportunity to improve my ranking in the Americas region, so I am definitely looking to performing well,” said Sharpe, who is ranked 23rd in the Caribbean, fourth in the Caribbean and first in the English-speaking Caribbean.

Sharpe said she does not believe the course will pose any real challenges.

“The course is familiar as I have done the race already, I did it last year and so I shouldn’t have too many issues getting my way around it. I am just looking for a good race, some good competition and a good result.”

    A fiery four-for from T&T Red Force pacer Uthman Muhammad handed the team a commanding 148 runs win over Barbados Pride at the West Indies Championship, in Tarouba, on Sunday.

     The win was the first for the Red Force over Barbados in three years.  Resuming the final day on 343 for 9, the home team managed to add another 7 runs before Anderson Phillips was dismissed for 350.  The total meant the Pride needed a mammoth 350 runs to win, a total they would not get close to.

    Muhammad, who finished with overall figures of 34 for 4, went to work early on the innings.  The bowler trapped Sheyne Moseley for five and Shamarh Brooks followed soon after for 10, which left Barbados struggling on 32 for 2.  Anderson Phillip, who took six first-innings wickets, got in on the act after removing Justin Greaves for one, leaving the Pride in further trouble at 33 for 3.  Shane Dowrich was next at the crease but could not repeat his first innings heroics as he became Muhammad’s third wicket. 

    Kyles Mayers and Kraigg Brathwaite briefly stopped the rot when they added 53 for the fifth wicket but Mayers was dismissed 10 runs short of his half-century by Akeal Hosein.  Brathwaite was next to follow, also dismissed by Hosein on 36.

    Kevin Stoute and last man Chemar Holder featured in another solid stand, as they added 52 runs for the last wicket but Muhammad struck again by capturing the wicket of Stoute for 33. Holder ended unbeaten on 34 off 37 as the Pride crumbled all-out for 182.
