Caribbean on Track for Olympic Glory

SHE Carribean Magazine - - LETTERS/EDITOR'S PLACE -

Too many times it seems like the rest of the world ap­pre­ci­ate Caribbean ath­letes than our own. Yes, we follow cricket and swimming seems to be de­vel­op­ing but why is there more con­cen­tra­tion on ath­let­ics? SHE's ar­ti­cle joined the queue. How­ever, re­cently St Lu­cia's Dar­ren Sammy was made an am­bas­sador for BMW, the first Caribbean per­son to have a spank­ing new BMW con­vert­ible to use as his own for the next two years. I can un­der­stand why he was cho­sen as he seems a man of in­tegrity, de­spite that hor­ri­ble dance crick­eters seem to be per­form­ing th­ese days… bet­ter to do that than test pos­i­tive for drugs which shamed a Jamaican ath­lete re­cently, (who we all looked up to.) All this re­ally to say, I en­joyed hav­ing sports in SHE Caribbean and I hope the next sport­ing in­jec­tion fea­tures more fe­males.
