Participation (unofficial)[edit]

Detailed result lists can be found on World-Track,[2][3][4] on the World Junior Athletics History website,[5] and on the original games websites.[6][7] The games saw the first appearance of athletes representing Bonaire after dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles. Athletes from Suriname were treated as guests (see below). An unofficial count yields the number of about 419 athletes, including 10 guests (227 junior (under-20) including 6 guests and 192 youth (under-17) including 4 guests) from about 24 countries + 1 guest country (athletes marked as "unattached" in the original result lists):[6] [7]

***: Guest athletes (see below).

Suriname[edit]

There was an ongoing dispute between the Surinamese officials Robby Rijssel and Delano Landvreugd, both gentlemen claiming to lead the Surinamese Athletiek Bond and to represent Suriname at the IAAF. As a result of this, two different delegations independently tried to register groups of athletes for the games. Alain Jean-Pierre from Haïti, board member of both the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association (NACAC) and the Central American and Caribbean Athletic Confederation (CACAC), explained that normally both groups would have to be suspended from the games following the rules. Nevertheless, there was a joint decision by the NACAC, the CACAC, and the local organizing committee in favour of the young athletes: all of them from both delegations were allowed to compete at the games, but they were treated only as guest athletes and appeared in the result lists as "unattached", rather than from Suriname. As a consequence, the athletes could not participate in the parade of the opening ceremony, and they were not considered to be eligible for winning medals. The victim of the argument between the Surinamese officials was 15 year old triple jumper Miguel van Assen who came in second in his category, but was not entitled to receive the silver medal.[10][11][12][13][14]
