Senior athletes back with medals

Different year, same dominance.
Barbados’ senior athletes proved there is no sapping of their penchant for medals, after copping 71 at this year’s International Senior Games, in Utah, the United States.
The successful team returned to Barbados this evening, and was greeted by scores of fans and well-wishers, as well as a number of Government officials at the Grantley Adams International Airport.
Heading the list of medal winners were double gold medal winners Thomas Fields and Martha Padmore, who dominated all and sundry in the archery competition.
So dominant was Fields in his first year of competition, he’s now the World Champion in the event.
Along with the medals, late national track and field coach Anthony Lovell, who passed away in March this year, was also inducted posthumously as a lifetime member of the Senior  Games. Lovell’s widow Ainsley accepted a plaque in his name.
