Manager of LIME, David Lake, said they were delighted to play their part in making a greater experience for the athletes and officials. “Being able to give our athletes that home-connection while they are on the global stage, with the world watching, is priceless. We applaud them for their hard work, dedication and commitment thus far.”
The telecommunications firm has provided all team members with SIM cards and credit to allow their calls back home and to also provide media updates.
A release from the company revealed that they have been facilitating updates from the Vice President of the St. Kitts – Nevis Olympic Committee, Mr. Dennis Knight, who has been able to call in to local media to provide updates. This will become even more important from this weekend when the track and field events commence. These are the events in which St. Kitts and Nevis will be fielding athletes.
