Commonwealth Games: Keevin Allicock, Aliyah Abrams to be Guyana’s Flag-bearers
Aliyah Abrams and boxer Keevin Allicock, will be Guyana’s Flag-Bearers at the opening of the 22nd Commonwealth Games on Thursday (July 28).
For Allicock, the 2022 event will mark his second appearance at the Commonwealth Games following his participation at the 2018 games in Australia.
In 2017, the 23-year-old Allicock won silver at the Youth Commonwealth Games in The Bahamas.
For Abrams, one of the country’s most consistent track athletes, particularly over the distance of 400 meters, this will be her first outing at the Commonwealth Games.
The 25-year-old Abrams is heading to the Commonwealth Games after her performance at the World Athletics Championships in the Women’s 400m where she reached the semi-finals.
At the World Indoor Championships this year, Abrams finished 5th in the 400m.
The opening ceremony for the games will take place at Alexander Stadium at 2:00 pm (Guyana Time).
