“I had my first Track Meet Yesterday and it was more like a training to me. I wanted so much more out of this meet, but it’s just the first meet. So I’ll keep looking forward, because that’s the only thing I could do.I won all my events. Thank God for a successful and injury free meet,” she said afterwards on her Facebook page.
Gabriel, from Bioche, was among two athletes who represented Dominica at the London Olympics in 2012.
