    “Treneese Hamilton falls short of a medal at World U20 Athletics Championship.” This heading should have read: “Treneese Hamilton places 6th at the World U20 Athletics Championships and makes history for Dominica.” We must start writing in the positive when it comes to stories such as these. This is no small feat that this young lady accomplished. What is even more impressive, is how she did it. She had to throw personal best marks in both the qualifying and the finals on the biggest stage of he life thus far en-route to becoming the 6th BEST U20 THROWER IN THE WORLD. Let this sit right there! IN THE WORLD!! Congratulations young lady and much respect to your Coach Joel Hamilton. Best of luck in your future endeavors.

    She is a very promising shot-putter with great potential. All she needs is proper coaching, hard work and strong motivation to take her to the next level. Congratulations Treneese!

      @Ibo France do you know the coach of this young lady? He is very qualified and could well be coaching at any top university or country in the World. Let’s make sure we have information before we make blanket statements. She has one of the best, technical, knowledgeable, and hard working coach who is not afraid to seek consultation from others in the field. So the use of the word “proper coaching” is a bit offensive to the body of work that her coach has put into his studies and craft. I hope that you do not take this the wrong way. He just coached this young lady to the 6th place finish at the U20 World Championships.

        I very much appreciate constructive criticisms. I respect your approach.
        Question: Why not reveal the name of the coach? Give the man some positive exposure. Large up!
