2004 Central American and Caribbean Junior Championships in Athletics

The 16th Central American and Caribbean Junior Championships were held in the Estadio Rafael Hernández Ochoa in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, Mexico, between 25–27 June 2004. The games were originally planned to be held in San Salvador, El Salvador. However, they were relocated to the state of Veracruz in Mexico in early 2004. Both cities of Xalapa and Coatzacoalcos were applicants.[1] A discussion of the results is given.[2]

RecordsEdit

A couple of new championship records were set.[3][4]

Event Record Athlete Country Type
Boys Under 20 (Junior)
200 m 20.67s   (1.2 m/s) Marcus Duncan   Trinidad and Tobago CR
Hammer throw
(junior implement, 6 kg)
59.03m1) Santiago Loera   Mexico CR
Girls Under 20 (Junior)
Shot put 15.74m Annie Alexander   Trinidad and Tobago CR
Boys Under 17 (Youth)
Octathlon 4832 pts2) Ramón Garibay   Mexico CR
Key
AR — Area record  • CR — Championship record  • NR — National record

Notes:

1): A new (junior implement) hammer of 6 kg was used for the first time at the championships. Therefore, the mark of 59.03m is naturally a new championship record. However, Yosmel Montes from Cuba threw the hammer 65.88m using the (senior implement) 7.257 kg hammer during the 1996 championships.[5]

2): The result of 14.91s in 110m hurdles was reported as wind-assisted (2.7 m/s).

Moreover, there were a couple of further results marked as championship records.[3][4] However, they might be disputable as discussed below:

Event Record Athlete Country Type
Girls Under 20 (Junior)
Pole vault 3.35m3) Nidza Torres   Puerto Rico CR
Carmen Castillo   Mexico
Isadora García   Mexico
Hammer throw 48.01m4) Mónica Coronado   Mexico CR
Boys Under 17 (Youth)
Pole vault 3.95m5) Yeisel Cintrón   Puerto Rico CR
Key
AR — Area record  • CR — Championship record  • NR — National record

Notes:

3): Citlalli Huerta from Mexico jumped 3.70m during the 2002 championships (marked as "Exhibition").[6][7]

4): Violeta Guzmán of Mexico threw the hammer (4 kg as in this competition) 51.46m during the 1996 championships.[5] The event was not held during the last championships in 2002, which might explain the mismatch.

5): Erik Corral of Mexico jumped 4.20m during the 1998 championships.[5] Again, the event was not held during the last championships in 2002, which might explain the mismatch.
