THE NEW RYAN BRATHWAITE TRACK might be called into action for school sports’ biggest meets.

Both the Barbados Secondary Schools Athletic Championships and the National Primary Schools Athletic Championships could be heading down to the Lazaretto next term following some recent setbacks to the construction of the track at the National Stadium.

During yesterday’s tour of the Stadium with former World champion and Olympic finalist Ryan Brathwaite, Minister of Sports Stephen Lashley said the move was a very real possibility, while disclosing that there would be a revised date for the track’s completion.

“I can say that we are already in discussion with the University of the West Indies as they are about to complete their track and, given the time frame, it is a possibility that we could use the Ryan Brathwaite Track,” said Lashley during the Press briefing.

Interschool Sports at both the Primary School and Secondary School levels are indeed the biggest athletic meets in Barbados. So it would be an excellent idea to have the meets at the Ryan Brathwaite track. Additionally, the Relay Fair is a big meet as well. Too long have we waited for additional training facilities for our world class and potential world class athletes.
