Barbados’ Olympians did not realize the nation’s hopes at the London Games but two members of the team, judoka Kyle Maxwell and 110-metre hurdler Greggmar Swift returned home yesterday to a rousing reception from officials and family members.
Maxwell, who was eliminated by the world’s No.2 in his first outing returned with his dad Lionel Maxwell and coach Keith Weithers.
Mum Margaret Eastmond was overjoyed to greet her son Swift as he, along with coach Alwyn Babb and physiotherapist Wayne Harris, exited the Arrivals Hall at the Grantley Adams International Airport.
Greeting the group was chairman of the National Sports Council, Seibert Straughn as well as Glyne Clarke, manager of the office of the Barbados Olympic Association (BOA) and Colonel Trevor Browne, of the BOA.
