2014 CARIFTA Games



The 2014 CARIFTA Games were held from April 19–21, 2014 at the Stade Pierre Aliker in Fort-de-France, Martinique. A detailed report of the event was given for the IAAF.

For the first time, the youth competition was open for athletes aged under-18 rather than under-17. The event served as regional trials for the athletics competitions at the 2014 Summer Youth Olympics.

Austin Sealy Award

The Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the games was awarded to Akela Jones, Barbados. She won three gold medals (100 m hurdles, high jump, and long jump) in the junior (U-20) category.

Records

By default, all winning marks in the U-18 category were new championship records, because the category was newly introduced substituting the U-17 category. However, only the marks that improved the existent U-17 records are considered here.;Key:
