Racers Athletes receives awards from UWI


The Racers athletes who travelled to Daegu as a part of the Jamaican team, were celebrated today along with the UWI athletes who were part of the team to the World University Games.

The athletes walked along the road to the Undercroft of the Mona campus of the UWI through a Guard of Honour formed by high school students, beforeĀ sitting down to an evening of entertaining performances, a welcoming address by the principal and a witty presentation from Coach Glen Mills.

The highlight of the day was the presentation of awards to the athletes. Usain Bolt and Yohan Blake were asked to make brief responses. This they did to the audience’s delight. A photograph session and an autograph signing session in which theĀ ‘schoolers’ were given a chance to get autographs from their favourite athletes, closed the function.
