In the boys' U-20 category, Dwayne Henclewood from Jamaica threw the discus 50.41m.

In the girls' U-20 category, Veronica Campbell from Jamaica finished the 200 metres in 23.05 seconds. Sheree Francis from Jamaica equalled the 1.79 m jumped by Nicola Springer, Barbados, in high jump in the year 1987. Claudia Villeneuve from Martinique set new records in shot put (15.29m) and discus throw (50.14m). And Keitha Moseley from Barbados achieved 3,695 points in heptathlon. Moreover, Adrianna Lamalle from Martinique reached 13.64s in the 100 metres hurdles event.[4]

In the boys' U-17 category, the star of the games, Darrel Brown from Trinidad and Tobago, set two new records of 10.36s in 100 metres, and 21.20s in 200 metres, and (most probably) helped the Trinidad and Tobago 4x100 metres relay team to finish in 40.87s. 16.07 metres is the new shot put record for Kimani Kirton from Jamaica.

Finally, in the girls' U-20 category, Janill Williams from Antigua and Barbuda won the 1,500 metres in the new championships record time of 4:32.89.
