At Central American Games, hit and miss in karate, cycling

As the Central American Games wind down, Belize has another medal added to its tally while missing out on another in cycling. In karate, Leon Guild secured the bronze medal in his under-eighty-four kilogram kumite category. In cycling, the women’s road race covered just under forty-five miles in and around Managua and Belize’s two participants, Kaya Cattouse and Alicia Thompson, finished fourth and fifth respectively, about two minutes behind the winner. In the male field which featured thirty-nine top-class participants, including Guatemalan Cross Country contender Manuel Rodas, Belize’s best finish was eighth by Giovanni Lovell, in an eighty-plus mile race which saw just thirteen competitors finish. Lovell placed three and a half minutes behind race winner Carlos Andres Brenes Mata of Costa Rica. The rest of Belize’s contingent included Ron Vasquez, Nissan Arana, Robert Liam Stewart, Tarique Flowers and Joslyn Chavarria. The games finish on December seventeenth.
