The athletes, who are being described as “athletic ambassadors”, given their remarkable achievements during the past month, in various European track meets, are currently engaged in their preparations for the upcoming summer Olympics and their current success is being accepted as signs for what may come in London, against the world’s greatest athletes.
According to the Public Relations Department of the St. Kitts & Nevis Amateur Athletic Association, SKNAAA, Antoine Adams and Tameka Williams have been continuing their dominance in Europe.
The male and female sprint duo have found themselves once again on the podiums of yet another indoor meet; this time, held in Tartu, Estonia, said Mr. Evris Huggins, SKNAAA’s PRO.
Huggins said Adams once again maintained his winning streak in a lifetime best of 6.66seconds whilst Williams dropped 7/100ths of a second off of her lifetime best to also qualify her for the World Indoor Championships in a time of 7.30 seconds.
They continue to achieve personal “best” and contribute to the development of the sport.
Meanwhile, on the home front the SKNAAA has been stepping up its development sessions and this Sunday 12th February, 2012, will feature the very first development meet at the Silver Jubilee Stadium. For this, athletes and spectators alike are highly anticipating this event, as the opportunities become greater to attain certified qualification standards. For starters, the times accomplished at this meet will be electronic compared to the manual stop clocks which were used during the earlier course of the season, in Sandy Point and Verchilds respectively, said a release.
“We have seen in the past few weeks the execution of four development meets which also included the annual Relay Festival hosted by the S.L Horsford Pace Setters Track Club. The numbers thus far have been astonishing, said a spokesman for SKNAAA.
Sunday’s event will be hosted by the Extreme Velocity Track Club.
