Guyana has been named as host for the 50th edition of the Carifta Games in 2021, marking the first time in the country’s history that the region’s premier junior track and field meet will be staged there.

The 48th games concluded in Cayman Islands on Easter Monday, with Bermuda now set to play host to the event next year.

Guyana’s athletics chief, Aubrey Hutson, said the country had lobbied organizers with the main argument that it was a “travesty” the country, located on the South America mainland, had never yet staged the games.
