The St. Kitts & Nevis Amateur Athletic Association, SKNAAA, on Sunday, released the names of the athletes and officials who have been selected to attend and compete in the annual regional track and field competition, which again is being sponsored by telecommunications company, LIME.
The SKNAAA announced that the team is comprised of 13 athletes and 3 officials. The Head Coach is Donnell Esdaille, while Grace Maritza Diaz is serving as the Assistant Coach.
However, one of the star athletes, on whom much focus will be placed, is the country’s Under 20 javelin champion, Adrian Williams. In 2010, he captured the Under 17 Gold medal in javelin, at the Games held in the Cayman Islands and the following year, he completed the double, which was a first for St. Kitts & Nevis, when he again won Gold in Jamaica.
Much is also being expected of the country’s relay team for the 4x100m and Under 17 high jumper, Clairvorn Kelly has a great opportunity to be included in the medal count, given the outstanding performances he has produced in recent meets.
