T&T sprinter Jamaal James has called time on his career, announcing it via social media on Monday.
It came a day after James failed to qualify for the Commonwealth Games at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
While James won his heat in the 800m Dash, he did not finish in the final, instead rabbiting the race for the future generation.
The 29-year-old said on Facebook, “Well this is the end! I would like to announce my retirement as an elite level track and field athlete.
It's become a norm for the Sports Company to send out a media release about its "diligent" after Carnival clean up efforts at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
On Wednesday afternoon, the organisation sent out a statement saying "the clean up effort was conducted smoothly and with the full knowledge that the stadium had to be ready for the weekend."
This past weekend saw the NAAA's pre-Commonwealth Games Meet with athletes vying for qualifying times and distances.
T&T sprinters Jereem Richards and Deon Lendore both grabbed gold on Saturday night at the New Balance Indoor Grand Prix in Boston.
Running in the Jesse Loubier Men's 300m, Richards topped the four-man field, including his countryman Renny Quow, in a time of 32.10 seconds. Quow did not finish the race.
Meanwhile, in the Men's 400m, Lendore opened his season with a fine run of 46.25 seconds to take the gold. Running in the same race, Machel Cedenio placed third with a time of 47.86 seconds.
