Medal table (unofficial)
The medal count has been published. There is a mismatch between the unofficial medal count and the published medal count for Jamaica and the Bahamas. This can be explained by the fact that there were only two competitors in the events boys U20 pole vault, girls U20 400m hurdles, girls U20 4x400m relay, boys U17 400m hurdles, therefore not having been considered in the published medal count.
