St. Kitts – Nevis Track and Field Program Review
Basseterre, St. Kitts
October 14, 2008 (SKNIS)
The track and field programme in St. Kitts and Nevis will receive a boost with the visit of two high profile sports figures that are credited in part, with the success of the Jamaican athletic development.
President of the Jamaica Amateur Athletics Association, Howard Aris and former gold medal Olympian and Commonwealth champion Donald Quarrie will visit the Federation from October 16 to 20.
“The Ministry of Sports remains committed to the development of sports and the advancement of young people through sports. The visit by these two respected gentlemen is testament to this pledge,” Director of Sports, Dave Connor told SKNIS. “The construction of the Silver Jubilee Athletic Stadium provided the infrastructure for local athletes to physically train. This week, we will take another step in addressing the mental preparedness of these athletes as the demands of international competition can be daunting at times.”
