BEING DISCIPLINED and dedicated with a focus and desire have paid dividends for Sir Wesley Hall throughout his life of cricket, politics and religion.

Now, the second recipient of the coveted National Sports Council’s (NSC) Lifetime Award wants the young sportsmen and women in Barbados to realise that talent alone is not the prerequisite for success.

That’s fantastic for us, an island 21 by 14 [square miles] and I think that augurs well for Barbadian sport,” Sir Wesley told NATION SPORT in an interview after the annual NSC awards ceremony at the Frank Collymore Hall on Saturday night.

“They are very talented but talent alone doesn’t win the World Cup (in cricket and football), the NBA or any of those things,” Sir Wesley asserted.
