This is the time of the year when countries in the Caribbean region has their National Trials to select their teams for the World Athletics Championships in Budapest, Hungary, from August 19 – 27th, 2023.

It promises to be an exciting championship with great athletes from all over the world. The premier event is usually the 100m Men and Women, which will have some strong competition this year.

The US trials produced some fast times with Fred Kerley (9.88), Cravont Charleston (9.91), Christian Coleman (9.91) and Noah Lyles (9.94) making the team for the US. They look like the favorites, but there are some powerful contenders from Africa this year.

The Women’s 100m will be the most competitive and thrilling. The US Team will include Sha’Carri Richardson, who ran the second fastest time in the world this year (10.71) in the first heat of the women’s 100m at the US Championships just completed. She seems determined to make up for failures in the past.

Not to be outdone the Jamaican women’s 100m team to the World Championships will include Shericka Jackson with a world-leading 10.65, Shashalee Forbes (10.96), Natasha Morrison (10.98) and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce who qualified as the reigning champion. Neither FastElaine nor Briana Williams were able to make the team.

And then, of course, there is Julien Alfred with times of 10.83 and 10.84 in May 2023. She has a strong field to compete against, which should help her her to achieve a new PB and NR, and ensure that she will not be disqualified for a false start, as happened at the World Champs in Oregon last year. Make sure to cheer her on in Round 1 on August 20th and the Final on August 21st, on ESPN.

With great interest, the National Athletics Centre opened on Saturday with a family sports day. More than 5, 000 people tried out the long jump and what it’s like to run on the red carpet of world records.

Hungary’s newest sports and leisure park was a great place to be all day long, with 2 000 people attending the stadium tour and getting their first behind-the-scenes look at the central venue of the World Athletics Championships Budapest 23.

After concluding their National Trials today, Athletics Kenya have announced their strong team to the 2023 World Championships in Budapest. Ferdinand Omanyala; and double World Record holder, Faith Kipyegon top the list of athletes released by AK to represent Kenya.
