Their first game against Costa Rica got off to a great start, and after four tries and a beautiful conversion, the Guyanese team cruised to a 22-7 victory. Their next match-up set them against Mexico, who proved to be tough opponents, edging past the home team 14-10.Nevertheless, the Guyanese team kept their heads held high and after some regrouping, defeated Colombia 14-12 later that day.Advancing to the quarter-final round, the “Green Machine” were matched with long-time rivals Jamaica. The opposing team drew first blood with a successful try, pushing Guyana to make a comeback. Not long after, the local team saw the fruit of their labours, levelling the score 10-10. However, as fate would have it, Jamaica pushed through a successful try to edge past Guyana in the last few minutes of the game. Despite being knocked out of medal contention, the “Green Machine” went on to demolish Guatemala 24-7 in a placement match.Over on the athletics field, javelin thrower Leslain Baird and triple jumper Troy Doris both advanced to the final in their respective events.Baird completed a massive 74.72-metre throw but it was not enough to make the podium, landing him in fourth place.
