Jamaica's youth athletes had a tough time on day two of the junior Commonwealth Youth Games (CYG) now taking place in Bahamas. The young Jamaicans contested four sporting disciplines on the day with no favourable results.

Ilana Blackwood failed to advance to the next stage of the tennis tournament after she was ousted by Namibia's Georgina Moolman 2-0. Moolman took the first set 6-4 and the final set 7-6 to move on to the next round..

The nation's lone representative at cycling (road racing), Brandon Reid, finished a disappointing second-to-last after coming in 30th out of 31 riders with a time of 14 minutes 49 seconds. The race was won by Bermuda's Oliver Matthews in 12.06.
