    Waste of tax money, year in year out no good results, pls build good facilities so kids can excell and compete with other Caribbean nations.

    I am glad we have representation, but we should aim to have more support from the government for more participation. we should have at least double that number, which can give encouragement to local athletes to aspire to such sporting endeavors. We can do better by our youth!
