However, in a press release issued on Thursday, 25th March, 2011, by the St. Kitts & Nevis Amateur Athletics Association, plans for the celebrity appearance have had to be altered.
In the release, the SKNAAA, announced that it “Wishes to advise the general public, and in particular, its many track & field fans that Mr. Tyson Gay, will not be a guest at the 34th Edition of the Interschool Championships on March 25th to 27th, 2011, as was previously announced.”
Due to a very recent injury in training, Tyson Gay was forced to withdraw his appearance.
Although this latest development is disappointing, the SKNAAA said it remains committed to delivering to their many fans and patrons an exciting event this weekend.
The SKNAAA wishes Mr. Gay a speedy recovery and thank him for his support of athletics in St. Kitts and Nevis.
