From the St. Kitts and Nevis Observer (September 30, 2013):

SKN loses a second young javelin thrower

The SKNAAA is mourning the loss of yet another one of its rising star athletes with the passing of javelin thrower J'Anthon Sillidy.

The 18-year-old national sportsman was hospitalized Friday (Sept 27) and died the following day.

While initial reports indicated Sillidy's cause of death was dengue fever, The Observer was reliably informed that an autopsy carried out today (Sept 30) revealed the athlete died after a cyst in his brain exploded.

The young man was reportedly hospitalized a few weeks ago and allegedly "misdiagnosed" with dengue.

Sillidy, a former student of the Verchilds High School, a few short weeks ago began his tertiary education at the CFBC.

The athlete represented St. Kitts at the 2013 PANAMERICAN Junior Championships in Medellin, Colombia held August 23rd- 25th.He place 11th in the Men's Javelin Throw.

Sillidy was a member of the SL Horsford Pacesetters Track Club and in a strange twist of fate, in June performed the tribute javelin throw at the memorial for his 22-year-old teammate, fellow javelin thrower Tesril Nisbett. She too died suddenly after being rushed to the JNF Hospital.

On Sunday a candlelight vigil was held on the lawn at Green Tree village where the young man lived. Family, friends classmates, former teachers, officials from the sporting fraternity, Minister of Sports and area representative Hon. Glenn Phillip and others were in attendance. Some paid tribute and shared memories and condolences while others placed flowers, candles and other gifts at the site.
