Nevis made sports history on Sunday March 16, 2008, when the island’s top tri-athlete Mr. Reginald “˜Reggie” Douglas won the overall male title in the sixth annual Carino Nevis Olympic Triathlon and the top male Organisation of East Caribbean States (OECS) title. Minister of Sports on Nevis Hon. Hensley Daniel recorded the Nevis Island Administration’s (NIA) highest commendation and congratulations to the tri athlete for what he called an outstanding performance.
“I want to convey to him our [NIA] highest consideration and to say the Ministry of Sports will do all that it can to facilitate the development of tri athletes and to facilitate his participation in similar events as we have done in the past in all of the sports.
“The Ministry of Sports is here to ensure that athletes excel and I feel that Reggie has demonstrated what can happen with training, with consistency and with a heavy focus on the prize. So again congratulations to Reggie and best wishes,” he said.
