For the 1984 CARIFTA Games only the medalists can be found on the "World Junior Athletics History" website.[1] An unofficial count yields the number of about 104 medalists (60 junior (under-20) and 44 youth (under-17)) from about 10 countries: Antigua and Barbuda (1), Bahamas (35), Barbados (13), Bermuda (5), Cayman Islands (3), Jamaica (29), Martinique (5), Netherlands Antilles (1), Suriname (1), Trinidad and Tobago (11).


Austin Sealy Award[edit]

The Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the games was awarded to Pauline Davis from the Bahamas.[2][3] She won 2 gold medals (100m, and 200m) in the junior (U-20) category. In addition, she was probably part of at least one of the medal winning relay teams (there is no information on the team members).
