VERACRUZ, Mexico – Virgin Islander Chantel Malone today November 25, 2014 did the Territory proud at the Caribbean and Central American (CAC) Games in Veracruz Mexico by winning the gold medal in the women’s long jump.

Malone leapt a distance of 6.46 metres in her championship effort which left her competitors in the dirt and sealed her the win.

However, her compatriot Tahesia Harrigan-Scott finished a disappointing 8th in the 100 m women's final with a time of 11.93.

Laverne Jones of the United States Virgin Islands grabbed bronze with a time of 11.54 behind Venezuela pair, Andres Purine and Nedium Vargas who ran 11.29 and 11.43 respectively.

    Congrats Chantel.

    Tahesia, you've represented the Virgin Islands well for several years and have made us very proud. But it's time to pack it up. There was a time when you could run 11.29 in your sleep. 11:93 ?? Nah man. Time to pass that Baton to Nelda.
