Andres Silva is the rising star of South American track and field. This young man is probably the most talented and multitalented athlete in the world today. He was the world youth champion in the octathlon 2 years ago, did his job at world juniors last year and he just won the open 400m at the South American senior championship in 45.38" a new S.A. junior record. He’ll be doing the decathlon at Panam junirs next week in Windsor. He is equally impressive in every single event.The Colombian women’s 4100m ran a very fast 43.17" that puts them 3rd in the world, behind the national teams of Russia and USA and ahead the very fast Jamaican squad. How come we can’t have a decent female 4100m program in Canada?
