Ole George and his walking challenges
Missing the Boat
Once more St Vincent and the Grenadines has missed the boat. We lost sight of the big picture.
In a sense the situation with this latest undertaking by Daniel and Butcher only serves to highlight how frivolous we still take sport in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
We are not at all serious.
The Prime Minister may be able to show off his photograph taken with Daniel while he was in Jamaica attending to other matters. He may never be able to tell this nation that he has ever really given much thought to understanding the exploits of Daniel and his intention of using his walking to showcase St Vincent and the Grenadines to the global community.
Sport goes well beyond the narrow confines of national politics.
As a nation we are so far away from a culture of sports that we only recognise sporting personalities after their exploits have been achieved. We seem not to be concerned with helping them get to the point of being successful in their exploits.
