Champions and Winners of the Weekend in Sports!

COMMONWEALTH GAMES GOLD COAST 2018 – ATHLETICS

The Commonwealth Games down under have come to an end and Jamaica did extremely well, winning International medals that we have never won before.

Over the weekend, we took over some of the Field events!

Jamaica’s thrower, Danniel Thomas struck Gold in the Women’s Shot Put!

Fedrick Dacres and Traves Smikle brought home the Gold and Silver respectively for the Men’s Discus.

Back on the track, Paralympian, Tevaughn Thomas won Bronze in the Men’s T47 100m!

Natoya Goule finally medalled internationally with a Personal Best in the Women’s 800m Final with a sweet Bronze medal finish.

Danielle Williams and Yanique Thompson got Jamaica a Silver and Bronze respectively in the Women’s 110m Hurdles.

Jamaica also took home medals in the 4×400m Relays for both the Men and Women!

Bronze for the Men

Gold for the Women!

NBA PLAYOFFS – BASKETBALL

The NBA Playoffs started last Saturday and the Celtics are already 1 up on the Bucks and the Thunder 1 up on the Jazz.

Warriors blew out the Spurs and the 76ers routed the Heat.

The Raptors finally won an opening Game 1 in the Playoffs, beating the Wizards.

The no. 1 team in the West, the Rockets, had a fight to beat the Timberwolves, 104-101. This may be one of the best match ups for the West in the 1st round.

Surprises?

The Cavs lost to the Pacers 80-98. But if you think about it, LeBron James usually allows a Game 1 loss.

Pelicans beat the Trail Blazers, 97-95. They had a significant lead for most of the game and when the Trail Blazers came fighting back it just wasn’t enough.

PREMIER LEAGUE – SOCCER

More exciting weeks ahead in Sports. Stay tuned!
