This is yet another “warm-up” event for the members of the National Olympic squad which is preparing for the London Games this summer.
The squad of nine (9) athletes and (1) one official, is expected to compete on both Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June, in various events, including the 100m, 200m and relays.
The full team is comprised of the following members: Kim Collins, Antoine Adams, Brijesh Lawrence, Jason Rogers, Lestrod Roland, Delwayne Delaney, Allistar Clarke, Virgil Hodge, Tiandra Ponteen, Lonzo Wilkerson – Head Coach.
The St. Kitts and Nevis Male Relay Team is currently ranked #9 in the world; a position which currently makes them eligible to compete at the 2012 London Olympic Games, as a top 16 National Team. It is the desire of the St. Kitts and Nevis Amateur Athletic Association to have their ranking increased through competition this weekend, said an official of the St. Kitts and Nevis Amateur Athletic Association.
