  1. Big up the Team Athletics SVG “Six”. On to Vera Cruz. I hope you take the opportunity to learn, grow and develop in your athletic performances, and prowess. Focus on significantly improving your times, heights, distances – – – and may they be vastly better than those of your fraternal, international colleagues from Central America and the Caribbean. Take in the fabulous scenes and culture also, guys.

    All appreciation to the TA-SVG coaches and administrators. Work assiduously hard, smarter and always fair, my favoured Team SVG.

  2. The CAC Games will be attended by different sporting disciplines. The meeting at 3pm is for the athletes from each discipline not just TASVG.
