    The performance of our athletes is below par. The facilities that they train on are way below par. They need a synthetic track and a top of the line gym. Mr. PM kindly use some of the CBI monies to improve the facilities for these athletes

    In order to do better and become real contenders in this arena we need to turn on our game. There first must be a firm plan with real goals set, backed up by resources, actions, and continuous drive. We don’t have try inventing anything new or too look far to see how it can be done, we only have to look at our sister OECS isle Grenada and see how/what they are doing, or even Antigua or St. Lucia. Clearly, we have the talent! We however need to have the programmes to spot it and the facilities and drivers to develop it.

    Only one medal? Disappointed but perhaps it is surprising that we got a medal and gold at that given our lack of facilities. Congratulation to young Burton

      Not a heard follower? Really? Then what are you? By your post Certainly not a leader, motivator or encourager! Be MORE positive.

      Congrats to the gold winner, and to the rest of the team on their efforts. I encourage you all to stay the course and double up your efforts towards gold.

    Kudos to the young athletes, their managers and coaches for a job well done. We all agree that more has to be done to improve our sports standard, but in the mean time keep pushing. To Mr. Burton, you are indeed a star athlete and you have something going good for you. Congrats again to you all!
