Trinidad and Tobago capped off a six-medal haul at the 2022 Commonwealth Games with a historic men’s 4x400 metres relay gold at Alexander Stadium in Birmingham, England on Sunday.
The TT quartet of Dwight St Hillaire, Asa Guevara, Machel Cedenio and Jereem “The Dream” Richards, running in that order, powered to victory in three minutes, 01.29 seconds.
In the process, they ended TT’s 56-year gold medal drought in this event at the Games. The last time TT won the Commonwealth men’s 4x400m was in 1966, when Lennox Yearwood, Kent Bernard, Edwin Robert and Wendell Mottley topped the field in Jamaica.
