Jamaica has added another medal to its tally at the Central American and Caribbean Games in Barranquilla, Colombia as Caitlin Chang secured silver in fencing in the women's individual epee.

The women's team then recorded their second win of the day, beating Curacao in straight sets before the men lost in their second match 2-0 to Cuba. Elsewhere, the mixed badminton team lost 3-2 to the Dominican Republic and 5-0 to Guatemala.

Jamaica's women's field hockey team finished 6th after losing 4-1 to the Dominican Republic in the 5th place playoff. Jamaica is now sitting 10th in the standing with 8 medals.
