SVG Flounders at CAC Games

St Vincent and the Grenadines faltered badly at the recently concluded Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games in the western city of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, in a year when national representative teams seem to have a rather difficult time achieving success on the regional and international scene.

Who owns the athlete?

Some time ago there was a serious conflict that arose in netball here. The issue related to whether students should be able to represent their clubs ahead of their schools in the national competition.

Inter Financial Sports turns 10

Inter Financial Sports turns 10

Team Athletics St Vincent and the Grenadines (TASVG) launched its 10th anniversary edition of the annual Inter Financial Institutions Sports Day on Tuesday 13 April 2010 with a brief media ceremony at Olympic House.

President of TASVG, Keith Joseph, proudly explained the success of the initiative taken 10 years ago to bring the nation's financial institutions together in friendly, fun-filled rivalry in a family-like atmosphere. He noted that this year's event which reverts to the Arnos Vale Playing Field on 15 May 2010 beginning at 1:30pm, will probably the biggest and most festive yet with a number of institutions coming on board for the very first time joining the other stalwarts.

 

Vincentian athletes and the Carifta Experience

Vincentian athletes and the Carifta Experience

Vincentian athletes at the 39th edition of the Carifta Games held in Georgetown, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, 3 – 5 April 2010, fared as well as could be expected given the current state of the facilities here at home and the inadequacy of competitive action with people of a higher standard. That is the view of the leadership of Team Athletics St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Vincentian athlete and Carifta silver medallist, Delohnni Nicol-Samuel, the son of Dane Samuel and nephew of Bigna Samuel, will not be wearing Vincentian colours at this year's Carifta Games. Selected by Team Athletics SVG in a quest for gold at what would be his final year of eligibility for Carifta, Delhonni has been refused permission to compete by his school, Campbell University, where he is a fist year student.

A most challenging athletics season in 2010

The following day, 19 March, it will be the turn of the boys to have their Heats and the girls will contest the finals of the 3000m Open. The Inter Secondary School Track and Field Championships Finals are set for 25 March. All of the foregoing competitions are being held at the Arnos Vale # 1 Playing Field.

This time around it is the turn of Delhonni Samuel, son of former marathoner, Dane Samuel, nowmarried and resident in Canada and the nephew of former national champion in everything from 800m through to the marathon, Bigna Samuel.
