Medal table (unofficial)Edit

The medal count has been published.[13] There is a mismatch between the unofficial medal count and the published medal count for the Bahamas. This can be explained by the fact that there was a jump off between Jamal Wilson and Kyle Grant, both from the Bahamas, in the Men's High Jump Under 20 competition, which is separately listed in the results[8] and might have been counted twice.
