United Kingdom Track and Field All-Time Lists

BRITISH WEST INDIES CHAMPIONSHIPS

The annual British West Indies Championships were first held in 1957 in anticipation of the creation of the Federation of the West Indies. The federation comprised the ten British islands of Antigua, Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Trinidad. Although not part of the federation the colonies of Bahamas, British Guiana and British Honduras were also invited to compete. Women's events were first included on the programme in 1959. Although the federation only lasted from January 1958 to May 1962 the championships were briefly re-introduced in 1964 after a three year break. The federation was represented by a single team at both the 1959 Pan American Games and the 1960 Olympic Games. Lists of medallists, where known, courtesy of Bernard Linley.

Venues: 1957 Kingston (JAM), 1958 Port of Spain (TRI), 1959 Georgetown (BGU), 1960 Kingston (JAM), 1964 Kingston (JAM), 1965 Bridgetown (BAR)
