At the Velo­drome in the Na­tion­al Sport­ing Vil­lage, Browne worked his way up from the back of the pack to lead in the penul­ti­mate lap of the six-lap race but was over­tak­en by the even­tu­al gold medal­list Colom­bian Kevin Quin­tero

In the fi­nal lap, he was still among the top three, un­til he was squeezed out by Venezue­lan Her­sony Canelon and Le­an­dro Bot­tas­so of Ar­genti­na, both of whom stayed on to se­cure the sil­ver and bronze medals, re­spec­tive­ly

Ini­tial­ly, he was ad­judged as the fourth-place fin­ish­er but was a mo­ment lat­er rel­e­gat­ed to six af­ter of­fi­cials re­viewed the footage of the race cit­ing an in­fringe­ment. To which na­tion­al cy­cling di­rec­tor Erin Hartwell en­gaged an of­fi­cial to query the de­mo­tion. He was pre­sent­ed with the ev­i­dence on the re­play and the re­sult re­mained un­changed

In the ear­ly ses­sion, Browne pro­gressed as an au­to­mat­ic qual­i­fi­er, com­fort­ably win­ning heat two in round one. He start­ed at the head of the pack and stayed out in front to cross first

Af­ter press time, Ak­il Camp­bell and Tyler Cole were com­pet­ing in the Men’s Madi­son fi­nal, hop­ing to seal this coun­try’s fifth medal. T&T al­ready has four medals—two gold, a sil­ver and a bronze

Ear­li­er, Alexi Cos­ta and Te­niel Camp­bell were sched­uled to race in the Women’s Madi­son (30km with 12 sprints) but did not start

Man­ag­er of the na­tion­al cy­cling team, David Fran­cis, “Camp­bell got in late from France on Sat­ur­day af­ter she was bumped off her flight.”

On Sat­ur­day night in the last event on track in the women’s om­ni­um, Cos­ta fin­ished 10th in the points race did not earn any points. She placed in ninth over­all with 76 points

Cos­ta had ear­li­er in the day, earned 26 points in the 30-lap scratch race fol­low­ing her eighth-place fin­ish. In the tem­po race, she crossed ninth and award­ed 24 points while in the elim­i­na­tion race, she was placed eighth and got 26 points

Ja­da Cha­toor fin­ished 14th in the Women’s 10km in the Open Wa­ter Swim com­pe­ti­tion at La­gu­na Bu­ja­ma. The lo­cal swim­mer clocked 2:14:50.6

Cha­toor coach McLeod was pleased with his swim­mer’s ef­fort say­ing: “I am very proud of her. The con­di­tions were tough, 19 de­grees wa­ter tem­per­a­ture, this is new to her. She swam like a re­al war­rior with all heart, soul and mind. Con­grats to her.”

Seems un­like­ly that for two days straight there would be no wind out at sea but that was the case at Bahia de Para­cas

Lo­cal sailors Kel­ly-Ann Ar­rindell and An­drew Lewis are sched­uled to com­pete in races one, two and three in the Men’s and Women’s Dinghy Open Se­ries but no luck

The sailors went out in the cold con­di­tions and stayed for two and a half hours be­fore the of­fi­cials post­poned the start for to­mor­row

Mon­day is sched­uled to be the re­serve day but ac­cord­ing to man­ag­er Ka­iron Ser­rette, it will be used as a race day

“Three races to­mor­row (to­day) and then three on Tues­day,” he said Ser­rette, who ad­vised that the lo­cal sailors will be adapt­ing to the new sched­ule

They un­der­stand the na­ture of the sport so man­ag­ing that part of it. They are both frus­trat­ed but stay­ing fo­cused be­cause they’re ea­ger to race.”
