Caribbean athletes swept the medals in the women's blue riband event...the Women's 100m.

Gold - Michelle Lee Ahye (TT) 11.14
Silver - Christania Williams (Jca) 11.21
Bronze - Gayon Evans (Jca) 11.22

Yes, Williams didn't get her usual bullet start out of the blocks, and it cost her, but Ahye delivered on the day...congrats.
