Entornointeligente.com / Controversy is still brewing over which team has eventually finished second in the girls section at the recent ISSA Grace Kennedy Boys’ and Girls’ Athletics Championships at the National Stadium. 10-time champions Holmwood Technical is now awaiting the verdict on their appeal filed with ISSA on Monday. Holmwood Technical were initially given second at the end of the 5-day championship following the disqualification of Hydel who had won the girls mile relay. However, Hydel were subsequently reinstated late Saturday night, resulting in them surpassing Holmwood to claim second on 289 points, just two ahead of Holmwood. Holmwood’s principal Hidran McKulsky has taken issue with aspects of the reinstatement report.

“If it is that the appeal was made within the 30 minute period, why was there no announcement on Saturday night stating this new position or why is it that Holmwood was not contacted to say that this action would have been taken?” said McKulsky.

In the meantime, the ISSA Competitions Officer George Forbes says a probe has been launched into how the reinstatement of Hydel was conducted. “We are investigating and if that (allegation that the Jury of Appeal had less than its minimum quota) is proven to be true then we’ll have to take further steps with the jury being re-empanelled with the view to taking a decision,” said Forbes.
McKulsky is also calling for the officials who were involved with the controversy to be made to explain their final ruling. The matter is now with the Jury of Appeal which officiatated at the championships.
