    At this point nothing’s gonna go good for Dominica because the morale extremely low in the entire country. When you are proud of your country you have high confidence and everyone is cheering you on. In a divided country it’s difficult to achieve anything, let alone a Gold Medal. But don’t give up, dear. Keep your dreams alive.

    Congratulation to you Treneese for attaining your personal best even though it was not good enough to put you on the medal stand. Dust yourself off and keep on trying. Best of luck in all your future endeavors.

    Now you know you have to improve by over 6 meters to be at top off podium in your game. Hopefully the next few years you are provided with all the training, musculoskeletal development and techniques to achieve 1.5 meters improvement per year or reach your full potential
