His twin brother Diamante Gumbs placed sixth with a put of 15.01 meters.
The territory’s second medal came in the 4×100 meter relay event after the quartet of Malik John, Mikkel Bassue, Vadley Sylvester Jr. and Ke’Andrae Campbell finished third in a time of 42.24 seconds.
That race was won by the Dominican Republic, which posted a golden time of 41.31 seconds while Trinidad and Tobago claimed silver in 41.64 seconds.
Meanwhile, the 3×3 basketball team of Kiara Woodley, Shauliqua Fahie, Jolene Bowens and Keithrece Smith despite doing their best ended up winless in the Games.

Their second game was against host Guadeloupe, and the BVI lost 12-16.
The team’s two medals placed the territory 16th overall, which saw the BVI tying with Suriname and Haiti.
