Champs 2021: Calabar's Javar Thomas wins triple jump goldFriday, May 14, 2021
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Calabar High School's Javar Thomas led from the first round to win the Class 2 boys' triple jump at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls Championships at the national stadium today.
Thomas' 15.23m (1.8m/s) in the first round stood up to the test as Kingston College's Jaydon Hibbert took second with 15.15m (0.8m/s) in the final round but his second best mark of 15.04m would still have seen him taking the silver over Jamaica College's Michael Curriah's 14.61m, edging Calabar's Nathan Wade's wind-aided 14.60m (3.0m/s).
