The name Jahshani Farrington was embedded into the minds of the thousands watching the ESHS Inter House Track and Field Championship both in person and online via our Facebook LIVE stream.
Farrington, a member of Carlisle House 4 erupted for 20 personal points yesterday. He tied with Carifta Games Gold Medalist, Jaleel Croal and Carifta Games Silver Medalist, Khybah Dawson for the top spot among males.
Jahshani’s most memorable race was his 1500m. He ran a tight race with seasoned athlete Jelani Croal representing Lettsome House 1, all the way to the 100m mark with Ikyjah Williams, representing O’Neal House 2 hanging behind. All eyes soon focused on Farrington and Croal as they both engaged all their remaining strength and speed for a fast and competitive finish to the race. Running neck and neck down the stretch, they crossed the finish line at lightening speeds just the tip of a hair apart. Jahshani was awarded 1st place in the race after much deliberation by the officials regarding such a close photo finish.
In a LIVE interview during the day, Jahshani thanked many persons for their encouragement and support leading up to the day’s event.
